Uji Kyoto Matcha
Pickup currently unavailable
Just south of Japan’s ancient capital roll the hills of Uji, where the tradition of green tea has thrived for centuries. Farms of the region specialize in shade-grown teas, with rich soil beds along the Ujigawa river providing fertile grounds for chlorophyll-dense leaves. Years of careful practice culminates in a stone-ground matcha whose flavors are mellow, delicate, and expertly balanced, providing a gateway to Japanese tea culture for drinkers of all kinds. In the final cup, we taste notes of heavy cream, fresh artichoke, and a gentle floral finish.
