(Currently this shincha is located here, even though it says "sencha" it's the same tea)

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

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!

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.

    A long time favourite. I always order plenty of this. The first steep (74c/165f - I prefer to always be 5f cooler than recommendation) at 1min (pour at 45-50sec mark) is wonderful, almost perfection. Smooth and sweet. Usually makes non-green tea drinkers change their opinion into fans. The only downside has been subsequent re-steeps are a let down, and is extremely volatile to burning. Try 57c/135f rinse steep for number 2. 76c/160f for steep 3 at 15 seconds. I've tried so many times to get a more rounded additional steeps, but this is the best I have been able to get. After that you are getting overpowering astringency, but that may be your thing. Fantastic first steep regardless.
