part of my “In search of fuka” …
Tea Notes> Green Tea> Sencha (for more)
included a comparison with Ocha’s Fukamushi Supreme.
There is a difference ! uh, while i forgot which is which, the one on the left might be the fuka supreme.
Method(s): last used which is not the one depicted above: 5.5g + 4oz @ 155F x 1 min. I do bottle brew these and at one point one of them became less pleasant but i forgot which so what i just said is quite irrelevant…
Liquor: fuka supreme: cloudy, YM: settles quicker and clears up more (not evident in the pics above)
Flavor: YM: nice clean taste, more refined than the fuka supreme, greenish yet not hard grassy, good fukamushi with more of a matcha flavor to it, even this first infusion has a sweetish aftertaste to it. The fuka supreme is more hard and a bit of a harsher tannin.
Overall: liked both…
