Organic Matcha | Ceremonial Grade | 40g
This organic matcha is produced in Kirishima, Kagoshima by Mr. Koichi Henta. It is a ceremonial grade matcha made from the Saemidori cultivar. It is shade-grown for 21-35 days prior to harvest, then stone ground from its tencha base.
In the cup: a rich aroma, strong umami and sweetness balanced with a light astringency.
The tea farm is located at the foot of Mount Kirishima in Kirishima, Kagoshima. Mr. Satoru Henta founded the farm in 1968 and today it is owned and run by Satoru’s son, Mr. Koichi Henta. Mr. Koichi Henta is specialized in organic tea farming and oversees the production by making small adjustments by hand and paying close attention to daily weather, temperature and changes in the ecosystem – as well as using a compost made by Mr. Koichi Henta himself.
