Asamushi Sae Midori Sencha - From the first harvest, this is a very special sencha from Kawaminami City, Miyazaki prefecture.
A very easy-to-brew green tea, this one is a bit unusual as saemidori is usually encountered in it's deep steamed form, yet this one is light steamed (asamushi) and it retains it's pretty green color. The saemidori clone of green tea plant is a cross between yabukita and asatsuyu varieties and was only registered in 1990. O-Cha.com was the first internet tea shop to offer Sae Midori to the general public outside of Japan and it indeed has proven itself to be a popular choice since introduction. Strong in color and aroma and a bit on the sweet side, you will be greeted with a very wonderful, grassy aroma upon opening of the package. If you are a connoisseur of light steamed green teas, we think you'll be particularly pleased with this item.
Available in 100 gram packages.
