About Shirakawa Asahi Matcha | 白川あさひ抹茶

Description: A single cultivar 100% Asahi matcha from Shirakawa, Uji. This powerful matcha exudes a sophisticated floral fragrance that transitions to a much deeper more savory profile on the palate. Rich with a notable power and rich finish. Prepare yourself for one of our most rich and decadent matcha - made by a true living legend.

What is so special about this tea? This matcha hails from unarguably the most revered tencha garden in all of Uji - The gardens of Mr. Kiyoharu Tsuji. Tsuji san has mastered production of a handful of cultivars with Asahi being the diamond in his crown. With more #1 showings at Japan's all national tea fair, it is safe to say his name is etched in the history of Uji tea production. His teas exude a notable power from intensive garden management and fertilization as well as the deep red clay soil of Shirakawa. The L-Theanine and Amino Acid levels of his teas are some of the highest recorded - and this comes through on the palate. We recommend using slightly color water to bring out that umami.

Recommended for: A pinnacle grade matcha experience - a matcha with a lot of character

Premium quality but not for me

The title pretty much sums up my review. It wakes you up, has long finish but the “flavor” profile is not for me. Compared Shinme which smells sweet when I whisk, this one has weaker aroma.
