From the first harvest, this is a very special sencha from Kagoshima prefecture located at the southern tip of Japan. When a sample of this came to us, we could not pass it up.
A very easy to brew green tea! The “Sae Midori” clone of green tea plant is a cross between Yabukita and Asa Tsuyu varieties and was only just registered in 1990. Since it does not tolerate frost, it is mostly grown in Southern Kagoshima. Strong in color and aroma, but a bit on the sweet side, you will be greeted with a very wonderful, grassy aroma upon opening of the package. Without a doubt, this item offers one of the most intense, emerald green color you will likely ever come across in any green tea. We are sure you will be pleased!
