About Shinme Matcha | 新芽抹茶

Description: Vibrant and invigorating, our Shinme Matcha is round and silky with a balanced sweetness and pervasive finish. This is our top tier Usucha, or thin grade of matcha from Yame. This very special matcha green tea offers a deep rich flavor with a powerful fragrance and embodies a truly refined Usucha experience.

What is so special about this tea? Shinme hails from Hoshinomura, the lauded hamlet with a reputation for growing Fukuoka's most refined Tencha and Gyokuro. Nestled in the mountains, Hoshinomura has the ideal conditions and soil for tencha, the name given to the tea leaves used to produce matcha tea. Combine terroir with expert farming and production techniques, and Shinme matcha is born. A notable nuttiness is present in Shinme due to a technique know is Hiire - a gentle firing that pulls out sweetness and imbues the tea with a gentle cacao like fragrance.

Recommended for: A refined matcha for everyday use. We suggest making Shinme according to the traditional method outlined below.

i’m new to matcha but this has quickly become a favorite. not bitter or astringent at all, very smooth and whisks into a beautiful foam!

Very nice

This is a delicate, drinkable matcha. I have been trying different kinds from Kettl to see which I like best, and although I enjoy this one very much, I have to say that my favorite so far is surprisingly the Soukou.
