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 the 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 cooler water to bring out that umami.

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