Vibrant and invigorating, our Shinme Matcha is round and silky with a balanced sweetness and pervasive finish.

Tasting Notes: Fresh cut grass / Cacao / Espresso mouthfeel

Tea Origin: Fukuoka, Japan

 

Traditional Matcha: In a tea bowl, whisk 2g of sifted Matcha powder with 65g of water (180°F) with a bamboo whisk until a fine foam is achieved.

Iced Matcha: Add 2g of sifted Matcha to a tumbler or thermos, add 200g of cold filtered water and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Pour over ice.

Storage: Keep the tin in the refrigerator. After opening, place the tin in a ziploc bag before returning to the fridge - this will protect the tea from absorbing any aromas from your refrigerator.

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.
