In this matcha set you'll find our three traditional matcha blends from Rishouen (利招園) in Uji, each with a unique flavour. These teas are blended for use in a ceremonial setting and represent the classic Uji style and flavour profiles.
In order of quality, this set includes:
- Uji-no-Mori: a bright and verdant blend of predominantly Kyōken-283 and Yabukita cultivars. This is a classic Uji usucha flavour profile, but can also be enjoyed as koicha
- Shōyō: a deep-flavoured tea with a velvety texture blended from hand-picked Samidori, Uji-Hikari, and Asahi tenchas. While designed to be enjoyed as koicha, this tea's depth and flavour can be explored both as koicha and usucha.
- Uta-no-Mori: an incredibly luscious and powerful tea blended from hand-picked Narino, Samidori, Uji-Hikari and Asahi tencha from award-winning farmers. This is our highest grade Uji matcha, blended specifically to be served as koicha. However, even as usucha, it's intense power can still be felt.
