This tea flight contains our three daily matchas, suitable to be enjoyed straight as usucha, or as a base for drinks such as lattes and matchaccinos. While terms like ‘ceremonial grade’ are mere marketing myths, we wouldn’t hesitate to serve any of these three in a formal temae.
To help you learn what style of matcha you like, the three matchas included in this sample set each have a different taste profile:
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.
