  • Inside Story

    Matcha is made from specially grown Tencha tea leaves, which are shaded by traditional Tana (woven straw mats). Shading protects the tender tea leaves from the sun and allows them to build up additional chlorophyll, caffeine and amino acids. To produce a fine powder, the stems and veins of the leaves have to be removed before grinding between granite millstones.
    It has been plucked from the first tender baby leaves emerging in spring.

  • Ambience

    Leaf: Very fine powder of bright green Tencha tea with matt finish, milled between granite stones – traditional method. Beautiful, light dust which smells of fresh spring grass and spinach.
    Liquor: Powerful, dense and cloudy green frothy liquid. The mouth-feel is rich, soft and textured almost like creamy avocado with a notes of sweet peas and walnuts. Extremely soft on the palate and refreshing with crispy umami taste. The finish is long lasting with savoury astringency, tingly sweetness and very uplifting effect.
