Tea Origin: Uji, Japan

Traditional Matcha
Usucha: In a tea bowl, whisk 2g of sifted Matcha powder with 65g of water (180°F) with a bamboo whisk until a fine foam is achieved.

Koicha: In a tea bowl, add 4g of sifted Matcha powder and 30-35g of water (180°F) and knead gently with a whisk until the matcha is completely mixed and is the texture of paint.

Iced Matcha: Add 2g of sifted Matcha to a tumbler or thermos, add 200g of cold filtered water and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Pour over ice.

Storage: Keep the tin in the refrigerator. After opening, place the tin in a ziploc bag before returning to the fridge - this will protect the tea from absorbing any aromas from your refrigerator.

Description: 100% Saemidori from Uji is rare to come by and we are thrilled to have sourced this wonderful matcha. Saemidori is balanced with a light body and pleasing gentle finish. Most often used for blending, Saemidori is a cultivar that lends a beautiful green hue and balanced freshness to blends. When consumed on its own it conveys a gentle sweetness. For those new to matcha or desiring a lighter bodied offering We wholeheartedly recommend this one of a kind Matcha.

What is so special about this tea? Single cultivar matcha is still incredibly rare to find in the consumer market place. Due to the wonderful relationship we have cultivated with the producer, several kilograms a year are made available to us. Uji Matcha is known for its depth of fragrance and unrivaled color - and Saemidori delivers on both accounts. We were excited to add this to the catalog as it provides a lighter side of Uji without the sharpness or astringency sometimes associated with less umami rich Uji Matcha.
