This multi award-winning Gyokuro is very representative of shade teas from the Uji region.
Kabusecha Saemidori organic
This green, shade grown tea, its unusual use of the cultivar (Saemidori) and its final drying (hiire), reflects a modern aesthetic, giving a fruity fragrance to the dry leaves. Its liquor is oily and flavorful (umami), dominated by its green chlorophyll and fresh butter notes. Its delicate floral (gardenia) accents harmoniously fuse with fruitier nuances. Enthusiasts take note! It is organic too.
