Our Matcha originates from the prefecture of Shizuoka on the island of Honshū. The region is famed for being the center of the Japanese tea trade. The special quality of the soil coupled with unusual climatic conditions sets the region apart and ensures thriving crops. The result is a mild but highly aromatic tea with a light, delicate sweetness.
For Matcha only the best leaves are selected from the first harvest. After a 2–3 weeks shading, the tea leaves shine in a glorious green. Directly after plucking the tea leaves, all leaf stems and leaf ribs are sorted out. This so-called "Tencha" is ground by a slowly rotating granite mill into fine powders. In one hour just the amount of a small tin is produced – about 30g. The bright green tea powder is immediately packed in airtight tins to conserve the freshness.
Enjoy the intense and fresh taste of green tea leaves combined with a silky smooth finish.
