Japan is one of the many countries renowned for its tea agriculture and analysis of both existing and new cultivars. The exploration of the Sakimidori cultivar began in 1979, with multiple plantings and screenings for adaptability. The outcome of this study illustrates a bright, green tea plant, with higher amounts of amino acids and lower catechin than some of its counterparts. Sakimidori Matcha possesses an uplifting, stimulating profile with spicy hint of serrano pepper and a subtle base note of cream. Look for a floral, aromatic top note reminiscent of Bao Zhong oolong tea.
