Cultivar: Okumidori

A very popular cultivar, Okumidori was registered in 1974 and is a hybrid between Yabukita and a Shizuoka Zairai. Like all cultivars that begin with ‘oku-’, it is a late-budding cultivar which means it is more frost resistant, but must be harvested later.

Though developed for sencha, Okumidori is also used for matcha and gyokuro with great results. Lacking a particularly strong character, it produces a well-balanced tea with a deeper, greener colour.
