Description

Fukamushi-sencha are sencha whose steaming process is longer than the steaming of classic sencha.

This tea is produced in Kagoshima, on Kyûshû island, and offers a somewhat soft tea, with a more pronounced taste than a classic sencha, but also with less astringency. The brewing process must be short and delivers a cloudier liquor than classic sencha, as fukamushi leaves are more broken. 

 

Tea and health

Recent books and studies seem to prove that green tea plays an essential role, not only in preventing, but also in treating cardiovascular dusease and some types of cancer. In his books, David Servan-Schreiber has stressed the presence in green tea of a catechin, the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This powerful antioxidant is capable of neutralizing the reactive oxygen species and the free radicals heavily involved in aging and in chronic degenerative diseases. Researches have shown that  the EGCG may have beneficial effects against numerous illnesses, like atherosclerosis, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases or overweight. In Chinese traditional medicine, it is recommended for intellectual work, to reduce fatigue by stimulating the nervous system, to lower body temperature, enhance eyesight, reinforce the immune system, help digestion... It is important to underline that the green tea that is evoked here is of good quality and, of course, straight, plain green tea!
