About Asahi Tencha | あさひ碾茶

Description: We are excited to offer an unblended 100% Asahi cultivar Tencha. Tencha refers the unmilled form of matcha (one step before grinding). - the leaves have been cultivated in the shade of traditional rice straw coverings, hand picked, and gently processed. We describe the flavor as the "Bass note" of matcha - a glimpse of the heart and soul of our Asahi Honzu Matcha.

What is so special about this tea? Single cultivar matcha is still incredibly rare to find in the consumer market place and unground Tencha even more so. Due to the wonderful relationship we have cultivated with the producer, several kilograms a year are made available to us. Brewing this tea takes some focus and a bit more time than regular tea, but the results are astounding. A crystalline brew with the sweetest finish of any tea in our catalog. The incredible skill that went into the garden management, harvest and production of this tea make it one of the most astounding products we've come across [the 2019 version of this won the Kyoto National Tea Fair #1 Tencha]

Recommended for: Lovers of Gyokuro who want to explore another side of shaded tea
