Fukumidori is a local tea plant cultivar grown mainly in Saitama prefecture, evaluated highly for its refreshing aroma and taste (i.e., quite different from the widely spread Yabukita cultivar). Only the selected young tea buds are used for this 'Sayamacha Fukumidori' coming from the Yokota Tea Garden. Please enjoy the beautiful green color of the tea and the fresh aroma. This tea can also be quite refreshing when enjoyed cold. Grown by 4th, 5th, and 6th generation tea farmers in the famous Sayama region of Saitama.
