ABOUT OKUMIDORI

A great history of Okumidori

Okumidori is another tea cultivar that is widely grown in Japan, particularly in the Kagoshima and Uji regions. It is a relatively new cultivar, having been registered in 1974, and is a cross between Yabukita and Shizu-Inzatsu 131 tea plants.

One of the distinguishing characteristics of Okumidori tea is its vibrant green color, which comes from the high level of chlorophyll in the leaves. The tea is also known for its strong umami flavor, which is attributed to its high content of amino acids, particularly theanine.

Okumidori tea is typically harvested in the late spring or early summer, depending on the region, and is used primarily for producing high-quality sencha and gyokuro teas. The leaves are steamed and then processed through a series of steps that involve rolling, drying, and sorting to create the final product.

Overall, Okumidori is a popular tea cultivar in Japan and is prized for its bold flavor and vibrant green color. It is often used in blends with other tea cultivars to create unique and complex flavors, and is enjoyed by tea enthusiasts around the world.

MATCHA vs COFFEE

A Steady Boost

According to many studies, a cup of matcha contains less caffein than a cup of coffee. The natural L-theanine in matcha calms your mind and body while absorbing caffeine which gives you a focused 4-6 hour boost! Matcha provides a steady increase in energy and focus without sudden spikes or crashes like with coffee and energy drinks.
