Kyoto Matcha

Origin: Kyoto, Japan

Cultivar: Yabukita

Farm type: Small lot tea farms in Uji, Kyoto

This matcha comes from a blend of tea leaves sourced from several small plot farms in Uji, Kyoto. The tea leaves are selected and stone-milled by a fourth generation tea producer.

A note on matcha: Matcha originated in China, where monks drank the beverage for its high caffeine content during meditations. During the 12th century, as buddhism spread to Japan, matcha was introduced to Kyoto where its popularity boomed. Now, Kyoto is the mecca of matcha production in Japan.

One 30 gram tin

Matcha has a shelf life. We pack our matcha at source in order to seal in freshness. Because we air freight our Kyoto Matcha directly from Japan, its freshness is unrivaled by mainstream matcha. Fresh matcha = less astringency & more sweetness.
