2021 GRAND PRIZE SAMIDORI MATCHA 10G | 全国茶商工業連合会長賞 (preorder - ships late January. Stone milled to order in Brooklyn, NY)
We are honored to share the 2021 National Tea Commerce and Industry Association Chairman's Award Matcha. A remarkable achievement on its own, what makes this tea so incredibly special is that it is made from the Samidori cultivar. Typically the top spots for National Tea Fair Tencha are awarded to Asahi or in some cases Uji Hikari cultivar submissions. Samidori is a more humble cultivar often used as the base for blends. It can't be overstated how rare this outcome is. But in the hands of a master like Kiyoharu Tsuji, we now see a new side of Samidori.
You can expect an incredibly balanced bowl of Matcha with a rich heady fragrance and lingering sweetness. The purity of the color in the bowl is a site to behold. Completely hand harvested and hand finished.
A fascinating and decadent Matcha for those wishing to try the best of the best.
