Mr. Henta is a knowledgeable organic green tea farmer growing eight different cultivars of tea plants on his farm in the Kagoshima Prefecture of Japan. The farm is surrounded by dense forest and some small mountains making it a natural and beautiful setting to grow organic green tea. The Saemidori Sencha is mildly sweet and rich in its savory umami flavor profile. The liquor is thicker and a slightly syrupy, indicating that the l-theanine content is quite high. Saemidori Sencha is fairly high in caffeine, but the high l-theanine content creates a balanced and sustained energy that can be referred to as a relaxed alertness similar to that of a high quality matcha green tea. Be sure to steep each serving at least 3 times observing and savoring the slight variances in flavor notes throughout each steep.
