Sencha Saemidori | Green Tea
Available online only.
An excellent tea for the experienced. The aroma is thick and the cup has that deep, bitter grassiness that only the best sencha can rank as a compliment. Full-bodied, great texture, good for many steeps. A winner!
Produced in April 2021 from Makurazaki, Kagoshima, Japan. The Saemidori cultivar was recognized in 1991 and is home to this region, but popular throughout Japan. “Sae” = bright, “midori” = green – it’s a combination of the Asatsuyu and Yabukita cultivars. Makurazaki is a sea facing city off the southern coast of Kagoshima. Its mountainous terrain and mild climate make it excellent for growing high-quality tea.
