Description

Origin: Kirishima Mountain, Kagoshima prefecture, Japan

Cultivar: Sae Midori ("vivid green")

Elevation: 300 - 450m

Harvest Date: April 27th, 2017

A 2017 Garden Direct Series exclusive! This impressive collection features seasonal micro-lots of single-origin teas we source and import directly from artisan tea farmers. Available for a limited time, these handcrafted teas were selected through real time micro-lot tea cuppings during our 2017 origin travels.

Our first batch of shincha is hand-picked from Sae Midori tea bushes and is slightly less steamed than the usual style of sencha cultivated for us by the Nishi family. The steaming is between the asamushi (light steam) and chumushi (medium steam) styles, revealing a bright, vivid green cup with a degree of clarity and glow. We love the classic bright and juicy taste of the Sae Midori cultivar. This limited quantity micro-lot was harvested exclusively for Rishi Tea and exemplifies the very best quality of Kagoshima's 2017 crop shincha.

Sae Midori is prized for its balance of delicate savory umami and tender sweetness.
