Outstanding Ceremonial Organic Matcha Tea Powder—Hand Picked 20g
Our rarest and most precious matcha comes from an old line of tea farmers who began cultivating organic matcha in earnest 1980s for health reasons.
Our outstanding spring tea is grown in the heart in the Fushimi-ku District of the Kyoto prefecture from cultivars Saemidori, Samidori and Gokou. The cultivars are blended by our tea Tea Master and shade-grown for up to 35 days, harvested from the tea plant's first flush, hand-picked, and ground by a granite-stone mill.
This superbly blended matcha reveals a rich umami liquor that is smooth and frothy, and distinctly sweet. It will impart enduring satisfaction and tranquillity to the senses and is highly suited to the preparation of usucha and koicha.

Step 1: Heat 70 millilitres of filtered or spring water to a temperature of 80°C/176°F.
Step 2: Place between one to two scoops of organic matcha into the sifter and release the powder through it into the tea bowl. Add a splash of the heated water to the matcha powder and gently combine with the whisk until smooth in consistency.
Step 3: Add the remainder of the heated water and briskly move the tea whisk backward and forth in an ‘M’ - shaped motion until foam forms on the surface. Enjoy. Sheer bliss!
Boil the water, then let it cool for two to three minutes to achieve the desired temperature, or alternatively add a little cold water. Resist pouring boiling water directly onto the delicate matcha powder as it will scorch and leave bitterness.
Consume the matcha within three minutes of preparation to enjoy the best consistency and flavour.
