The Sencha Henta Saemidori is a work of art. The thick, syrupy mouthfeel of this tea weighs heavy on the palate, hitting you with a strong sweet sweetness that later gives way to a complex fruitiness. There is a little bit of a starchy or nutty note to this tea, but it is easily overpowered by the playful fruitiness that comes in later. The steamed vegetable notes give this tea a longer finish, with a lingering aftertaste that’s not astringent.
The second steeping brings a greener color to the tea and more of these starchy cereal notes. The fruitiness and sweetness subsides but the grassy vegetable finish becomes even stronger. The tea has a sweet grassy finish that lingers even longer than in the first steeping.

Meet the Farmer behind the Henta Saemidori
This tea comes to us from Mr. Henta, an organic green tea farmer in Kirishima. Mr. Henta is quite knowledgeable about tea plant varieties, also called cultivars. Although his farm is on the smaller side, he grows 8 different types of tea plants. He can then combine these cultivars into different tea blends to get the perfect flavors.
This tea comes from the town of Kirishima, close to Kagoshima. The farm where this tea is grown is surrounded by dense forest and some small mountains, making it a very natural and beautiful setting to grow organic green tea.
How to Brew the Saemidori
Add 5 grams of leaves to the teapot or strainer and then pour in 150ml to 200ml of water (160 degrees Fahrenheit) and let the tea brew for 1 minute. You can brew the leaves 2-3 more times with the same temperature for 20 seconds each
