The Story

- This top of the world sencha tea selection comes from our direct connections from Japan. Pieter Loridon also gets his Premium and Ceremonial quality matcha from these farms, where he went in June 2018 to get to know the owners and the matcha fields. -

Saemidori means clear bright green. This cultivar is native to Kagoshima and is characterized by a fresh, citrusy aroma as well as a bright green liquor and a sweet flavor with deep Umami.

To add to the natural sweetness of its cultivar, this Sencha is composed of leaves grown in a field covered from the sun 11 days before harvest to allow for the extraction of mellow flavors after infusion.

Our first flush Saemidori is produced on the foot of the Kirishima volcanic mountain range, by one of the best producers in Kagoshima. The soil with plenty of nutorition brings about the taste of protain like beans. Its glossy emerald green leaves are kneaded into elegant needle shapes, allowing for the added pleasure of viewing beautiful leaves before tasting a delicious tea.

Be mindful when brewing this to use lower temperature water, to prevent scalding the leaves.
