Coming from well-known tea master Uejima-san in the famous tea producing region Wazuka, Kyoto prefecture, this Sencha Superior comes from the samidori cultivar (Not to be confused with perhaps the more familiar saemidori cultivar). While this cultivar is generally suited for shaded teas like kabusecha and gyokuro, Uejima-san’s is a non-shaded samidori making it somewhat of an uncommon and rare find. This well balanced, freshly fragrant sencha from Uejima-san will please you with its elegant umami, enjoy! 

To note, the samidori comes from a tea plant in Uji and was bred by Koyama Masajirou in 1939. Nowadays, it is more common to come across a matcha from this cultivar in Kyoto prefecture.
