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.
