STORY BEHIND THE TEA

This Matcha made from the Saemidori cultivar is sweet, balanced, and rich. As Koicha its umami and sweetness coat every corner of your mouth leaving an incredible after-feel and giving you energy for the whole day. Beaten to a frothy bowl of Usucha more airy aromas reveal themselves. Velvety smooth and fresh. As expected this premium Matcha can be enjoyed in many different ways and never disappoints.  

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.
