This excellent Organic Sencha Zen Cha Saemidori Premium or “Zen Cha” is a first flush Saemidori varietal tea from Kirishima Mountain. This is a premium grade organic-certified sencha! You'll find it to be very deep and fresh. To make this tea the leaves were shaded for 7 days prior to harvesting. This encourages the production of aminoacids which lend the tea a sweeter taste reminiscent of gyokuro tea.  The Saemidori varietal is a cross between Yabukita and Asatsuyu varietals. It is often used to make gyokuro because of its sweetness and creaminess. Year after year, this is our favorite Sencha!!! Don't miss it!
