Organic Kagoshima Sencha Saemidori is a deep steamed organic fukamushi sencha comprised of the precious young leaves that appear in spring. The saemidori tea bushes used for this sencha are specially cared for and given priory by its grower. The grower harvests the tea bushes only once a year and harvesting only takes place at the optimum timing in spring.

In addition, a plantation area with the most suitable fertile soil, correct altitude and safest growing environment were carefully selected. Soil is managed throughout each harvest year with only natural fertilizer and with the utmost of care. As a result of all of these factors, the quality of this organic fukamushi sencha is maintained to a very high standard.

The flavor is sweet and smooth with very little astringency, and it's accompanied by a wonderful fresh aroma and beautiful green tea liquor. It's an organic Kagoshima deep steamed sencha of exceptional quality!
