What makes this sencha tea different?
Saemidori sencha is a cross between Yabukita and Asatsuyu cultivars; it has inherited the the balance of Yabukita, and the sweetness and color of Asatsuyu.
Saemidori sencha is truly a unique Japanese green tea that is smoother and more flavorful than ordinary sencha, without sacrificing the body or brothiness of the liquor.

Brewing tips (please watch video at the bottom of this page)
- Do not use boiling water and do not brew the first cup for more than 60, as that will result in an over extracted or an unpleasantly bitter tea.
- Brewing a second cup should be for no more than 20-30 seconds.
- Adjust your serving size and the amount of water to your liking. There is no right or wrong, it’s what you enjoy.
