This is an ceremonial matcha from the Saemidori cultivar. The Saemidori is coming more and more in vogue, thanks to its light sweetness with a slight grassy undertone. Compared to an Okumidori matcha, the Henta Matcha is much sweeter, with a slightly fresher taste. Compared to a Yabukita Matcha, this tea is smoother, more delicate and sweeter. You will notice a light sweetness right away, followed by an umami note towards the end, with some notes of fresh cut grass.

Meet the Farmer
This tea comes to us from Mr. Henta, an organic green tea farmer in Kirishima. Mr. Henta is quite knowledgeable about tea plant varieties, also called cultivars. Although his farm is on the smaller side, he grows 8 different types of tea plants. He can then combine these cultivars into different tea blends to get the perfect flavors.
About the Farm
This tea comes from the town of Kirishima, close to Kagoshima. The farm where this tea is grown is surrounded by dense forest and some small mountains, making it a very natural and beautiful setting to grow organic green tea.
How to Brew it
Add 2 grams of matcha to a bowl and then pour in 100-150ml of 160-175F water. You can then scrape off the sides of the bowl and begin whisking with you matcha whisk
