Family-run tea garden, Yoshino Tea Garden, was one of the first to grow this still new and rare cultivar (Sai no Midori) in Saitama before it was even given the name Sai no Midori. The cultivar takes its DNA from a child plant of Sayama Kaori (also available through the Yoshino Tea Garden as a single cultivar sencha). While it is soft to the palate, it features a rich and strong flavor.
