FLAVOR NOTES: Has a jammy-like smoothness with a very satisfying full cup. Luxury grade style Japanese green tea and Gyokuro gives a light astringent finish.
The ancient Japanese who first created the tea believed it was gift of the heavens, and as such held great restorative and spiritual power here on earth.
Producing this amazing tea is painstaking work. It is made using pure luxury tencha green tea and Gyokuro leaves that have been shaded under special shade covers for 3 weeks before plucking. Shading forces the plants to produce higher than normal chlorophyll levels, giving the leaves a rich green color. Once plucked, the leaves are steamed and dried. Next, they are stripped of all stems and veins, resulting in a pure leaf that is stone-ground into the fine powder tea lovers are familiar with.
As amazing as Matcha is, we're happy to say that we've taken it one step further. Having identified a high altitude Western Kenyan tea with 3x the antioxidant value of regular green tea, we decided to blend it with our traditional Japan Izu. The flavory green character and emerald appearance is not altered, but the antioxidants are significantly boosted. Brew a cup today - to your health!
