Matcha // Premium Grade

Stone Ground Powdered Green Tea

From Wazuka, Soraku District, Kyoto Prefecture, Honshu Island, Japan

40g Tin

This tea is organically grown!

An delicious premium grade Matcha that offers a vibrant grassy green colour with a sharp texture and rich body, creamy with bright, fresh flavours and balancing touches of astringency. Subtle sweetness akin to green apples and vegetal notes complimented with full fruity aromas. Good length of flavour lasting in the mouth, once enjoyed.

Made from shaded Tencha leaves from a mix of cultivars. Harvested in early June. The leaves are selected and steamed over a water bath, dried and ground into a fine powder in granite stone mills.

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.
