Details-

The Hattori family are quite unusual, even among small growers; crafting single estate, small batch green teas in Shizuoka, Japan, whereas Japanese green teas are almost always produced at a large factory from leaves from multiple farms, lacking a single-origin character. Hattori-san is an ecological farmer, growing his leaf completely chemical-free, and his approach combines the best of modern and traditional styles. Saemidori is a cross between Yabukita and Asatsuyu variety of tea cultivar. Recorded in 1990, it is probably the cultivar that has had the greatest success in the last 20 years thanks to its delicious umami character
