Matcha Superior (40g/1.41oz)

The highest quality Matcha is exclusively grown and produced in the rolling hills of Uji, in the ancient city of Kyoto, where Hibiki-an is located. Japanese tea culture, such as the tea ceremony, was developed in Kyoto. It is one of the reasons the techniques of growing highest grade Matcha intensively accumulated in the Uji region.

Matcha Superior is among the highest quality Matcha produced in Japan.

It is carefully grown in the shade for 20 to 30 days before harvest by the way of "Tana" which requires skillful technique and great care. It has a smooth and mellow flavor.

Our Matcha Superior has a more smooth and mellow taste than most Matcha teas you will find on the market, and it is also much less bitter. It is perfect for those new to the art of Matcha drinking or those who drink it quite often and prefer a high quality Matcha that is not too expensive.

Matcha

Matcha, or powdered green tea, has a wonderful aroma, silky froth, and rich, mellow taste. High quality Matcha such as ours, is not bitter but smooth and mellow. As one moves up the scale toward the top grade of Matcha, the color becomes a more vivid green and the flavor becomes even more noble, smooth and mellow.
Matcha is made from new tea leaves that have been carefully grown in the shade for 20 to 30 days before they are harvested, steamed and dried. Much Theanine, which is the source of its sweet mellow taste and noble aroma, is created in tea leaves by shaded from sunlight.
The dried leaves are then ground with a traditional stone mortar and pestle, called a Hikiusu.
Unlike tea leaves, where one drinks an infusion made from the leaves, Matcha is consumed in its entirety, so you can directly ingest the whole beneficial constituents of Matcha.
