2021 SHINCHA | Oishi's Saemidori

$20.00

  • Our first micro-lots of 2021 shincha are in!  Grown in the warmer, volcanic soils of Kagoshima, these leaves are among the first that we've loved this year from Japan.

     

    Experience:  notes of young pine needles and steamed kailan; intense umami reminiscent of shade grown tea.

    Micro Region:  Minami Kyushu, Kagoshima, Japan.

    Cultivar:  saemidori (さえみどり) is a popular cultivar in Southern Kyushu, where it thrives in warmer climate. It was created by crossing Asatsuyu (which has very desirable flavour but low yields) with Yabukita cultivars; it was only registered in 1990. Saemidori and is used mostly for sencha; however, it can also produce very attractive gyokuro and matcha.

    We recommend steeping this tea with water at 65 Celsius; ice brew (mizudashi) also yields stunning results. 


    ABOUT THE TEA ARTISAN

    Oishi San's tea factory was established in 1940, a very turbulent period in Japan's history.  The company has flourished; Oishi San owns tea fields in the region, but also sources leaves from a wide diversity of micro-farmers, finishing the tea at his facility in Yame.
