Matcha Uji Hikari
A super high-grade, single cultivar matcha from Yoshida-san’s gardens in Ogura area (Uji city).
A true delicacy, this matcha has almost no bitterness and presents the roundest, softest umami taste I’ve experienced. Aromas unfold like a slow and harmonious melody, moving from fresh cut grass to wakame and other light seaweeds, finishing on ground chestnuts flavors. It’s so silky smooth it feels like drinking from a mountain stream.
Made from the emblematic Uji Hikari cultivar (Uji City’s trademark tea plant), this tea has everything you’d expect from a high-grade matcha and is suitable for both usucha and koicha preparation.
20 g per tin.
