Keijo Saemidori Sencha
The Saemidori bush was first developed in 1969 through crossbreeding between Yabukita (the most popular tea bush in Japan) and Asatsuyu (a bush type known as "naturally grown Gyokuro”). Saemidori is rich with almost no bitterness and a delicate, fresh aroma. This lightly steamed shade grown Saemidori Sencha is from Miyazaki prefecture.

About Sencha Variety
Sencha, the most commonly drunk green tea in Japan was first produced in Uji (the outskirts of Kyoto) in the 18th Century and is now produced in many parts of the country. First flush tea, harvested from late April through mid-May, is considered the best of its kind. Sencha has the perfect balance of briskness and sweetness.
