This matcha is from the Uji District and is considered a Heritage Grade product, following all the steps of traditional centuries-old matcha production with one step modernized, that of the shading material.
Tencha tea leaves blended and refined by Nishide-san are then ground into fine matcha powder at his partner’s matcha stone mill factory. Leaves themselves are shaded under modern canopy shading for some 40 days (varies from year to year) for extra rich savory umami flavor.
