A premium offering of organic sencha from Kirishima made from the great OKUMIDORI cultivar!
OKU cultivars are what are known as late-budding tea cultivars. There are various OKU cultivars such as okumusashi, okuyutaka, okuhikari and okumidori. All of which produce very good quality tea with unique taste and aroma. However, all of them have become less and less cultivated in recent decades as tea growers opt to plant newer cultivars or earlier-budding cultivars.
Regardless, we were fortunate enough to locate an organic grower in Kirishima who is still producing very high quality Okumidori and it is an absolute treasure! Very deep aroma and a fantastic unique savory element especially the first infusion which we found to be highly impressive.
