If you would like to purchase a large amount of Matcha Pinnacle in bulk, this refill package is an excellent value. At last, we arranged this value pack of Matcha Pinnacle, which is our most popular item.
We at Hibiki-an have received many requests for a large package of Matcha, that is also a good value. This refill pack is 120g / 4.23oz which is 4 times the amount of our usual container of Matcha Pinnacle (30g / 1.06oz) whereas the price is only 3.2 times the amount. The price is actually discounted 21%.
In order to keep Matcha in good condition, the package is zip lock (re-sealable) style. When you close the zip lock package once opened, please remove the air from the package as much as possible, in order to preserve the freshness of the Matcha. If you have the metal container from our 30g / 1.06oz Matcha Pinnacle, you can refill it. This small pull-top can is superior and useful for storing Matcha. With this value refill pack, you can refill the original metal can 3 or 4 times.
This is truly the finest quality Matcha available in Japan or anywhere in the world.
"Honzu" is a very special way to create a canopy to shade tea plants from sunlight. It is the most traditional way from long ago, and these days it is very rare to see, even in the Uji region. In the "Honzu" method, tea farmers build a structure to provide shade to the tea trees using only reeds and straw. In the Ogura area, there is a large pond where thick reeds grow.
Each leaf for this item is specially selected and carefully picked by our farmers' skilled hands.
Only some breeds: Samidori, Asahi, Gokoh, Uji Midori and so on are suitable for Matcha. It is very difficult for any other breeds to produce the deep sweet taste of Matcha.
To grow the finest-quality Matcha takes not only time and effort but also tea trees passed down from prior generations, geographically ideal soil conditions, and technical succession - it must be by the very grace of God that we can all enjoy excellent Matcha of this quality!
This large, convenient, and re-sealable Matcha Pinnacle Refill is not only an excellent value but is also good for the environment.
