Reserve Selection - Matcha "Ceremonial Grade"
Made by Matsushita family of Kakegawa, a multi-generational tea dynasty who have been producing tea since 1915, our Reserve Ceremonial Grade Japanese Matcha is a delicious blend of Samidori, Goko cultivars.
The vivid bright leaves contain a high concentration of amino acids, offering a sweet Kabuse aroma with moderate umami character, but lasting rich velvety mouthfeel and minimal astringency. Goko brings sweet bright acidity with a hint of cocoa.
