This blend is from Kirishima, Kagoshima Prefecture. It is a volcanic region with a sub-tropical climate and is known for its agricultural products. We opted to use younger leaves in this blend so that the green colour is more pronounced than most other matcha powders made for lattes. An all-round great choice for aspiring matcha latte baristas. Use this blend to take your matcha lattes, ice creams and baked goods to the next level. Its stronger flavors help to balance out against fat and sugar in recipes so you can get a distinctive “matcha” flavoring without compromising the overall taste.
