Japan Ceremonial Matcha Premium Organic. This is Japan's most precious tea. The high quality leaves (Tencha) are shaded for 28 days before picking. The Tencha leaves are then ground into a fine green tea powder which is the tea at the centre of the Japanese tea ceremony and as such is a speciality. To produce good Matcha tender Gyokuru leaves are steamed briefly, dried in the air and finally, after removing all stems, are stone ground into a fine powder - a time consuming process. The shiny green Matcha is put directly into a tea bowl. Hot water is poured over it and foamed using a delicate bamboo whisk. This tea tastes bitter sweet with a fresh grassy aroma and vibrant coloured cup. the tea comes from the Kagoshima Prefecture and belongs to the premium category.

Fine sweet flavours, a velvety finish and its deep jade-green colours are distinctive of this top quality Matcha
