About Shirakawa Samidori Matcha | さみどり抹茶

Description: A single cultivar 100% Samidori matcha from Shirakawa, Uji. This is a wonderful chance to try unblended Samidori Matcha - made from Uji's trademark cultivar. Samidori matcha is the most gentle of all of Tsuji san's offerings. We love this as a luxurious everyday matcha. This Matcha can be prepared both as Usucha and Koicha.

What is so special about this tea? This matcha hails from unarguably the most revered tencha garden in all of Uji - The gardens of Mr. Kiyoharu Tsuji. Samidori ranks as the most grown cultivar for Tencha in all of Uji. But this Samidori cultivar matcha is not like thre rest. Made with extereme attention to detail. With more #1 showings at Japan's all national tea fair, it is safe to say Tsuji San is etched in the history of Uji tea production. His teas exude a notable power from intensive garden management and fertilization as well as the deep red clay soil of Shirakawa. The L-Theanine and amino acid levels of his teas are some of the highest recorded - and this comes through on the palate. We recommend using slightly cooler water to bring out that umami.

Recommended for: A pinnacle grade matcha experience - a matcha with a creamy, gentle character.

Smooth morning treat

This has quickly become one of my favorites of the matcha teas. It is gentle on my palate, yet very satisfying. A slight creaminess to it. Slight herbaceous aroma. Nothing overpowering, very gently provides pleasure.

Aromatic, dense, rich, worth it.

Rich matcha

To be honest, I didn't really like this matcha *that* much when I first had it. I much prefer the creaminess of Fukuoka matchas I've had from kettl, like the Kiwami, Hibiki, and Shinme. But the more I've had this matcha, I've grown to enjoy the richness and bitterness.
