Teaware You'll Enjoy Using
These matcha bowls have a classic wan-nari shape with a subtle spiral effect called rokurome (ろくろ目 - pottery wheel marks) made by the potter's fingers as they slide up the cup, shaping it on the pottery wheel.
Mino-yaki (美濃焼,) is a type of Japanese pottery produced in Mino Province in Gifu Prefecture, Japan.
Artisanal Japanese Matcha
Smooth, nutty, and chocolatey, this Okumidori matcha from Wazuka, Kyoto gets its distinctive rich flavour from skillful growing and strong firing.
Grown at an elevation of 310m with reduced pesticide usage, Kanoyama's smooth yet bold taste makes it stand out in lattes and perfect for a bowl of usucha.
Though not as famous as its neighbouring town Uji, Wazuka is actually where a lot of Ujicha is grown and recently has become more well-known.
An energising Okumidori matcha from Uji, Umezuki is shaded in the traditional shelf-style for 30 days, giving it a bright and classic flavour ideal as usucha or for use in drinks and lattes.
Uji has long been at the centre of Japanese tea and has been famed for its high-quality matcha production for centuries.
Balancing a punchy umami with a refreshing brightness, this blend from the mountains of Shizuoka has a robust, yet classic taste that can be enjoyed straight or in drinks.
