Perhaps one of the most coveted blends produced in Uji. This is the flagship offering from famed Marukyu Koyama En, Uji's largest and most respected tea producer and blender. This pinnacle grade offering is made with a blend of 100% Asahi lots from throughout Uji including roughly 30% that is grown by the Koyama family in Ogura. This blend is an olympic torch of sorts with a combination of Tencha from 2019, 2020 and 2021. With a vibrant green color and deep, dizzying aroma, you can expect a rich, round and complete bowl. We love it as usucha but for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, try preparing it as Koicha (thick tea).
This tea can be made as both Usucha abd Koicha.
