Before we drink Saemidori, we can't contain our excitement. This is because it is a tasty cultivar with parents from Yabukita, the classic of green tea, and Asatsuyu, also known as natural gyokuro. It has rich umami, sweetness, and a fresh aroma. How can anyone not like Saemidori?

Izumo tea factory has been producing tea since 1907. With a farming area of 12ha, they are the largest tea producer in Shimane Prefecture. Yuta Oka, who once worked in Tokyo and later chose to take over his family business, is very stoic in his tea production, perhaps because of his career. He collects detailed data on the weather, tea leaves, etc... and steadily produces delicious tea every year.

Their Saemidori is one of the softest tasting teas in our lineups. It is almost free of bitterness and astringency, and its sweetness and umami gently spread out. We think you will be surprised to know that there is such a delicious tea in Shimane, which is unknown for tea production.
