This lot, made from the Uji Midori cultivar, was hand plucked and gently stone ground, producing a remarkably gentle tea replete with flavors of bittersweet chocolate, fresh cream and mint. This excellent tea can be used for thick or thin style preparations.
Produced by a family run cooperative, this matcha comes from the Ogura area of Uji, one of the first areas to produce matcha.
