This blend hails from the hills of Uji and boasts a rich and full-bodied flavour with enough brightness to cut through milk for daily usucha and lattes.
This tea is made mostly from Yabukita tencha blended with various other cultivars including Okumidori, Meiryoku, and Uji-Midori
Uji city in Kyoto has long been at the centre of Japanese tea and has been famed for its high-quality matcha production for centuries, dating back to the 12th century. The shading method used to produce modern matcha (c. 16th century) along with sencha (1737) and gyokuro itself (1835) were all invented by Uji farmers looking to push the boundaries of tea quality. Though the name Ujicha remains associated with high-grade tea, most tea branded as Ujicha is produced in the neighbouring towns of Ujitawara, Minamiyamashiro, Kizugawa, and primarily Wazuka.
