Description

Cultivar: Saemidori ("vivid green")
Elevation: 230m
Harvest Date: April 15th, 2018

Each year the Nishi family produces a special small batch of hand-picked Shincha to celebrate the old school artisan technique of harvesting by hand. This year they picked exclusively from Saemidori plants to make this single-cultivar Shincha. Saemidori means "vivid green" and it is easy to see why after brewing this tea. Renowned throughout Japan as pioneers of organic tea cultivation, the Nishi family has captured the vibrancy of spring in this remarkable hand-picked single-cultivar gem.


Origin

Nishi-san's garden, Kirishima Mountain, Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan
