Among all the cultivars the Yabukita bush is the most common. Yabukita produces excellent quality tea. Perfectly balanced: sweet and brisk with a hint of bitterness. Because of its adaptable nature to different weather conditions and high yield, Yabukita is planted in over 75% of all Japanese tea gardens.

Fukamushi (deep steamed) Sencha is steamed twice as long as usual, yielding leaves less uniform in appearance than regular Sencha but a liquor which is sweeter and a brighter green in color. Fukamushi Sencha Tenjo is made only with tea leaves grown in Kakegawa region of Shizuoka, known for the richness of its soil. This tea is made using young leaves which are typically picked around the 7th - 10th day after the first flush harvest has begun.
