Kirari 31 is a single cultivar sencha from Kurihara Tea Farm's new tea field in Yame, Fukuoka, Japan. It is a cultivar that has been receiving increased attention recently, and it's a cross between Sakimidori and Saemidori. It was first produced in 1994 and showed promising traits that resisted disease and cold. These qualities along with its hearty growth makes it an attractive cultivar to grow in higher elevations. It is generally ready for harvest several days earlier than Yabukita, and it produces an excellent color and mild flavor.
