      Sae Midori Sencha

      From the first harvest, this is a very special sencha from Kagoshima prefecture located at the southern tip of Japan. 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.

      A very easy to brew green tea! The "Sae Midori" clone of green tea plant is a cross between Yabukita and Asatsuyu 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!

      Note that this is a deep steamed green tea with very fine, almost dust-like leaf particles. While you can brew it in a variety of teapots, it is best prepared in a teapot designed for fukamushi-cha (deep steamed green tea)

      Available in 100-gram packages.

        How much will the flavor of the tea will be missing if I just infuse it through a mesh sieve in a mug?

        If you pre-heat your mug, pay attention to your brew times and temperature, you shouldn't lose any flavor. Those factors are more important than what you use to brew it in.

        Unexpectable sweet for a fukamushi with tons of umami and grassy flavor. By far the best sencha i have ever tried.

        Amazing color and taste on this tea. Naturally sweet.

        It's hard not to focus on the color of this most brilliantly green of teas. But you'd recognize the grassy flavor even in the dark. Not as funky as the Yutaka Midori, this is my all-around favorite tea.

        Delicious when brewed at right temperature. Remember to warm up the tea pot, too.

        This is a beautiful deep steamed green tea. Lots of tiny particles which I love. I am reviewing the 2016 harvest in April/May 2017 so it's a full year old and still amazing. Rich grassy flavor, lots of umami, really good.

        This is the first fukamushi tea I have tried. I love the deep green color, especially of the second brew!

        However, going by flavor, I don't think I am much of a fukamushi-person. The flavor is mildly green (as you may expect from a fukamushi, from what I understand). I like a tea with some more body, like kariganes.

        However, I do think it has a nice typical flavor profile that will find appreciation from deep steamed tea aficionados.

        Probably one of the best teas available, especially if you, like me, are an absolute fanatic of deep steamed green tea (fukamushi). I have been buying this tea for many years and the quality and freshness has always been impeccable.
