Japan: Shouraku Matcha
Usucha Grade Matcha that is stone ground and grown by farmers in Kyotonabe, Yawata City, Jouyou, and Wazuka in Kyoto and shaded for about 3 weeks. It is not as sweet as our koicha grades but has a beautiful aroma and a refreshing bitterness.
All of our matcha selections are of the highest quality. The only difference you will find are the types of tea tree cultivars that are used. The use of different cultivars gives each matcha its own character and taste. Certain cultivars are more expensive due to the small amount of harvest and the skills needed to masterfully grow and process them.
Matcha is not just a simple tea to us. It is part of our everyday health regimen and our tea practice. We are long time practitioners of Chanoyu through the Urasenke school and have dedicated our lives to the art of tea.. Our goal is to offer the purest taste, without compromising quality and at a reasonable price.
