About Shinme Matcha | 新芽抹茶

Description: Vibrant and invigorating, our Shinme Matcha is round and silky with a balanced sweetness and pervasive finish. This is our top tier Usucha, or thin grade of matcha from Yame. This very special matcha green tea offers a deep rich flavor with a powerful fragrance and embodies a truly refined Usucha experience.

What is so special about this tea? Shinme hails from Hoshinomura, the lauded hamlet with a reputation for growing Fukuoka's most refined Tencha and Gyokuro. Nestled in the mountains, Hoshinomura has the ideal conditions and soil for tencha, the name given to the tea leaves used to produce matcha tea. Combine terroir with expert farming and production techniques, and Shinme matcha is born. A notable nuttiness is present in Shinme due to a technique know is Hiire - a gentle firing that pulls out sweetness and imbues the tea with a gentle cacao like fragrance.

Recommended for: A refined matcha for everyday use. We suggest making Shinme according to the traditional method outlined below.

Didn't do anything for me

I hesitate to say anything since I am new to Matcha. I bought this at the same time as the Soukou, and greatly preferred the Soukou. It wasn't bad, just not to my liking, a little grassier than I liked.

Good lord

Thank you lord for blessing us with this life changing beverage !
