This is Chiyonoen’s number one popular single-cultivar sencha; the Okumidori sencha. It has a refreshing aroma and fruity after taste that will spread in your mouth. To fully appreciate the original aroma and flavor of the Okumidori cultivar, husband and wife tea farmers Masashi and Eri Harashima steamed it slightly strongly ( not a deep-steamed sencha) and fired it slightly to provide a rich taste. Chiyonoen has several single-cultivar senchas, please enjoy the unique taste and aroma of the different tea varieties. 
A note about the Okumidori Cultivar:  It is a late-maturing cultivar that is harvested towards the end of tea harvesting season. A cultivar that is well known for having a strong taste and aroma, often utilized to make matcha.
