About 2019 Shirakawa Matcha Horizontal Collection

20g Honzu Asahi | 20g Honzu Uji Hikari | 20g Samidori

Description: We have been dreaming of releasing a set like this - a full collection of one producer's teas from Uji City. This complete set showcases the works of Mr. Tsuji, one of Uji's most celebrated Tencha farmers and multiple time winner of the All Japan Tea Competition for best Tencha. This set is a window into the world of Single cultivar teas. Being that each Matcha is unblended and from the same garden, you have the ability to isolate the taste, aroma and color of a single cultivar of the tea plant. What is a cultivar? Think wine grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc - all grapes but with unique characteristics and profiles. We invite you to take a deep dive into some of finest Matcha being produced today.

What is so special about this tea? These matcha hail from unarguably the most revered Tencha gardens in all of Uji - The gardens of Mr. Kiyoharu Tsuji. Tsuji san has mastered production of a handful of cultivars and three of his most regarded are included in this set: Asahi, Uji Hikari, and Samidori. 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
