We are proud to offer a new collection featuring the entire range of matcha offerings from Kyoyharu Tsuji, Uji's most celebrated single cultivar Matcha producer. This set allows the drinker to compare and analyze how each cultivar expresses itself while isolating region and production methodology. The set contains one 20g tin of each tin:

From arguably the most revered garden in Uji this incredible 100% Asahi cultivar matcha is grown by Mr Kiyoharu Tsuji - Japan’s most awarded producer of matcha. Tsuji san's somewhat radical approach to garden management produces matcha with incredibly high levels of Theanine - sometimes double the amount of conventional teas. We invite you to try this special small allotment from a legend of Uji.
