The Ohnejime District is located along the coast in Kagoshima prefecture and enjoys a warm climate. This allows it to be one of the first places in mainland Japan to begin harvesting first flush teas each season. Additionally, the Ohnejime District was among the first to start producing fukamushi (deep-steamed) sencha. By thoroughly deep-steaming thick yet tender tea leaves, the tea becomes rich in sweetness.

Saemidori cultivar is characterized by its bright and vibrant green color, as its name suggests - "sae" meaning vivid and "midori" meaning green. It accounts for approximately 4% of Japan's green tea production. Saemidori has gained popularity in recent years in Japan due to its refreshing aroma, balanced flavor of rich sweetness and umami, and low bitterness.


We store our inventory in two locations: Japan and the United States. This is because we currently have a large customer base in America. In the future, we plan to expand our distribution centers to other countries. For details on shipping methods and delivery charges, please click here.

We strive to deliver our products to our customers as quickly and affordably as possible by stocking them in both Japan and the United States wherever feasible. However, for tea leaves that are sensitive to temperature and humidity, we ensure shipping from our temperature-controlled warehouses in Japan to maintain their quality.

Most of the teas we sell now are 15-30g. The reason is that we want you to enjoy exploring a variety of teas. We offer a multi-purchase discount on all teas, 10% for 3units and 20% for 5units at checkout.
If you want to buy a larger amount, such as 3oz at a time, please consider purchasing multiple units. With our multi-purchase discount, it will be more economical for your purchase.
