Matcha is a powdered tencha* historically used in the Japanese tea ceremony. Our Uji Matcha is a premium culinary grade matcha with a rich vegetal fragrance, vibrant green color, smooth texture, and delicate aftertaste. You can enjoy our Uji Matcha on its own or in culinary creations.
From the time the Buddhist monk Eisai brought tea seeds from China in the 12th century, Uji in Kyoto has been producing tea for matcha. This long history, combined with the high demands for quality by the upper echelons of fuedal Japanese society, has made Uji the most famous matcha production region.
*Tencha is a minimally-processed, fluffy leaf tea produced specifically to make fresh matcha.
