Korogi Roasted Sayamamidori Oolong 2020


Tea magician Mr. Korogi’s signature roasted oolong.
Manufactured from the Sayamamidori cultivar in Miyazaki Prefecture.
The roasting adds a deep aroma to the already fragrant oolong.


The Sayamamidori cultivar is one of the earliest registered green tea cultivars. It was registered in 1953 under the cultivar registration system, as entry number 5. It was developed as a species especially suited for the manufacturing of Sencha and Gyokuro from a local native Uji tea bush. It is especially resistant against cold and frost and has a large yield.

Judging from this tea it is safe to say that the tea bush produces a delicious fragrance when withered and makes it a suitable varietal for the manufacturing of oolong. A light roasting of the same tea enhances not only the aroma, but also the traits of the cultivar as a fresh green tea.
