Okumidori Matcha Washimine

This organic matcha is produced by Mr. Nakai, an organic tea farmer in Wazuka, near Kyoto, the old capital city of Japan. His family is one of the first in Japan who started growing tea organically. After talking with him, we found out his father was one of the founders of the organic “JAS” labels in Japan.

The matcha made by Mr. Nakai comes from the cultivar Okumidori. This superior cultivar is reserved for high-grade Gyokuro, Sencha and matcha. The excellence of  this matcha comes from its very round and complete taste with a balance of creaminess, a full body and a fine silky note of fresh spinach and a hint of asparagus. The resulting tea produces a very well-rounded taste with no bitterness. Because of its supreme quality, this matcha is also used for koicha, a thick paste made from only the highest grade matcha.

Use 1-2 grams of matcha for 70-100ml of 175F/80C water

Gokou Matcha Koiai 40 grams

This organic ceremonial matcha comes from the Gokou cultivar. Typically, this is a premium cultivar of matcha, known for its nice full-bodied and umami flavor. If you like these bold savory flavors of matcha, this is the best option for you to try. Compared to the Washimine, this tea is fresher and more full-bodied. It is a very well balanced and flavorful matcha with less astringency. The flavor is quick and straight to the point, but it finishes with a round creamy flavor in the end. This matcha comes to us from the mountains of Shizuoka, Japans largest tea growing region. The farmers of Osada source their tea leaves from small family farms in the organic village of Isagawa to ensure the tea is made with great attention to detail and absolutely no pesticides. We visited these tea farms in April 2019 to see the fields and factories where it was produced in person.

Use 1-2 grams of matcha for 70-100ml of 175F/80C water   

This tin contains 40 grams of tea, enough to make 40 matcha bowls
