Description

Powdered Japanese Green Tea

The green tea leaves are grown in a very particular way.  20 days or more before the tea leaves are  picked, the tea farmers cover all the tea bushes in the plantation with traditional bamboo and straw screens. These covered green tea leaves are called Tencha. The covering prevents the tea leaves from being exposed to ± 97% of the sunlight. This increases their chlorophyll content, resulting in dark green tea leaves.

While covered, the leaves become larger, thinner, and softer. After picking, the thin, soft leaves are easily ground with a stone mill. This results in a Matcha powder with a fine texture.

 

Refreshing Aroma and
Sweet & Umami-Rich Taste

Our Matcha is characterised by its refreshing aroma of fresh green leaves, and sweet and umami-rich flavour. By covering the tea leaves, the scent of the traditional covering materials is added to the tea leaves. The covering of the leaves results in an increase of theanine in the tea, which adds a hint of umami. Then, while drying the leaves, the scent of the oven is also added to the tea leaves. Last, but not least, the ± 20 seconds heat, which is applied by grinding the Tencha tea leaves with a stone mill adds a hint of the aroma of the stone mill to our powdered Matcha. 

 

Yame (八女) Origin

Yame is located deep in the mountains in the northern part of Kyushu Island. This mountainous land together with the unique inland climate of Yame, hot during the day and cold at night, enhances the taste of the teas.

    I drink Matcha Latte with my teenage daughters often. It taste even better when you add some honey. My favorite is Matcha Rolled Cake which is rolled Match flavored sponge cake with whipped cream and sweet red beans inside. That is our Heavenly Treats ! I highly recommended.
