Story

The "taste" that we usually perceive is composed of taste and smell, and it is said that smell accounting for more than 80%. Green tea contains more than 200 kinds of aromatic components. These components are intricately combined to create the aroma of tea.

This tea, named "Fragrant Green Tea," is made by wilting (oxidative fermentation), which is not part of the normal green tea production process, to bring out the aroma from the tea leaves. This process is also used in the production of oolong and black tea, and is essential in creating the rich aroma that can be compared to flowers and fruits.

"Saeakari" has a sweet, corn-like aroma which is unique to the cultivar. The roasted aroma is mixed in with it, giving the tea a nuance somewhat like grilled corn.

As the temperature gradually drops, the mild sweetness of this tea becomes more pronounced, and the taste changes to a sweet, chestnut-like flavor. Whether hot or iced, there are many ways to enjoy this tea.
