STORY BEHIND THE TEA

 

Sweet, dark green, and aromatic. Those qualities combine in teas made from the Goko cultivar. As a native Uji-tea, it's perfect for shaded teas like Gyokuro and tench, which ultimately become Matcha. This Goko is a great example of premium Matcha with a long, sweet aftertaste. Just the right tea to lure your friends into the world of Japanese tea or to treat yourself.   

About Matcha:
Matcha is a ground Japanese Green Tea, famous for its role in 茶の湯/chanoyu/the Japanese rite of tea. Coming from China Zen Buddhist monks brought over this kind of tea for its medicinal values. Later taken up by the political elites it became a highly valued good fostering diverse artistic expression. To produce this tea the leaves are shaded for a long period of time, (ideally) handpicked, and after further production steps first stored for half a year before being ground. Because the whole leaf is consumed it is like a concentrated shot of caffeine and beta-theanine which bring both alertness as well as calm.
