Hailing from the birthplace of green tea in Japan’s Obuku valley on the outskirts of Kyoto, this premium Ceremonial Grade Matcha tea has a refined quality that is hard to beat.
Hand picked in the traditional manner by skilled and experienced tea farmers, Ceremonial Matcha from the Obuku valley is one of the few remaining teas to be farmed and harvested by hand rather than mechanically, producing a wonderfully distinctive green tea.
Providing a smooth and mellow aroma and flavour palette, this matcha is produced from pure Gyokuro leaves and has a light emerald colour and fine texture. Served gently frothed and unstrained, it is rich in antioxidants, beta-carotene and vitamins.
Certified organic and unrivalled in terms of quality and flavour, this ceremonial tea is the perfect green tea to choose for times when only the best will do!
