Character

Flavour

The best organic matchas in Japan, besides Uji and Hoshino, come from the top region of Kirishima in southern Kyushu. We obtain the tencha directly from Kirishima's leading organic tencha farm, which is well-known in Japan. We exclusively source the highest quality 1st harvest tencha and have it milled for us in Uji. Stone-milling ensures optimal retention of nutrients, a creamy texture, and the full development of aromas. The prize-winning tencha farmer places great importance on the use of a natural, bioactive fertiliser which is produced in a years' long fermentation process. This fermentation yields special complexes of bacteria and minerals that are better absorbed by the roots of the tea plants than generic fertilisers. The tea plants become stronger and healthier, and this can be tasted in the tea.

The basic flavour tone of the matcha is balanced between delicate bitterness and subtle sweetness. The aromas of sea breeze, green apple, and fresh celery round off the taste. A decidedly well-rounded and straightforward matcha that is ideal for everyday enjoyment.

Matcha

Matcha, alongside gyokuro, is considered one of the finest of Japanese green teas. Unlike other teas, matcha is produced from shaded leaves that have been milled to a fine powder. The resulting tea contains the whole tea leaf and all its nutrients, not just water-soluble compounds. The production of matcha is time-consuming and demanding: the best qualities are gently ground in granite stone mills that can only produce a few grammes per hour due to the slow pace. Quality matcha has an intensely sweet and umami flavour that even in high concentrations (such as in the dark Koicha tea) is only minimally or not at all bitter.
