Matcha ~ Premium Organic
Matcha // Premium Grade
Stone Ground Powdered Green Tea
From Wazuka-cho, Soraku District, Kyoto Prefecture, Honshu Island, Japan
This tea is organically grown!
An excellent Premium grade Matcha that offers a vibrant grassy green colour with a sharp texture and rich body, creamy with bright, fresh flavour and touches of astringency. Subtle sweetness akin to green apples and vegetal notes complimented with full fruity aromas. Good length of flavour lasting, once enjoyed. This is a quality Matcha that’s super delicious!
Made from shaded Tencha leaves using a mixed cultivar. Harvested in early summer ’20. The leaves are selected and steamed over a water bath, dried and ground into a fine powder in granite stone mills. Picked & processed by Tea Master Nakai & family.
Wazuka is a tea town in the southeastern area of Kyoto Prefecture. Wazuka has been a tea growing location since the Kamakura period as a main producer following Uji tea processing methods. It thought that the Kaijūsen-ji temple introduced tea to the area and Zen Buddhist monk, Shonin Jishin was the first to cultivate tea on Mt Jubu and then in Wazuka.
