A wonderful mellow, delicious Matcha from famous Uji: tencha (green tea) leaves from a pesticide-free farm (in conversion to organic) freshly milled into fine powder.
This Matcha is a single-cultivar Tea. The Samidori cultivar is very specific to the region and performs great when made into Matcha, with a vibrant green colour, nice umami and silky mouthfeel.
A beautiful, sparkly full green for your favourite matcha bowl and a satisfying, energising feeling with a distinctly pleasant aftertaste on your palate.
The flavour profile is rich, sweet, silky, nutty, umami and creamy with a very pleasant and long-lasting aftertaste.

Usucha (thin tea): Sieve two heaped matcha spoons (2g) of the powdered tea into your bowl. Add about 100ml of 80°c water. Gently mix with a bamboo whisk (soak your whisk in warm water before use to prevent breaking) and then start whisking until a fine, thick foam forms on the surface of the tea.
