This first harvest, ceremonial matcha comes to us from Uji, perhaps the most famous area for tea cultivation in Japan. For hundreds of years, Uji was known to produce the best matcha in Japan, and that reputation still carries on to this day. This tea has been shaded for 20 days to create a rich savory flavor.
This matcha starts off strong with a bold savory flavor and a thick mouthfeel. It gets right to the point with these strong umami flavors that evolve over time. The strong vegetable notes of this matcha are balanced out by the heavy creaminess of the tea. The finish is strong on these savory seaweed and baby spinach notes but without any astringency. This is a very well balanced matcha that lacks bitterness without lacking power. The combination of strength and smoothness of this matcha is unrivaled, and it makes a great addition to our lineup.
