About Sayama Kaori | さやまかおり煎茶

Description: A unique single cultivar sencha from a singular personality and Saitama legend - Mr. Yoshiaki Hiruma. Sayama Kaori highlights the freshness and power of Sayama sencha while showcasing the delicate floral undertone purposely coaxed from the leaves by a patented UV machine that that gently withers the leaves. A very special tea.

What is so special about this tea? An incredibly unique tea made by an equally unique producer. The Sayama area lies within Saitama prefecture, just west of Tokyo. Made from entirely from the Sayama Kaori cultivar, a varietal native to the area. The producer, Mr. Hiruma is somewhat of a legend. He is best known for his radical micro-oxidizing technique.

Recommended for: We love this matcha straight or blended with oat milk for a matcha latte. Prepared traditionally, Soukou is fragrant and light on the palate. As a latte, the color and flavor cut through milk quite well and the tea retains its radiance even in milk.
