Together with a small group of established Japanese tea masters and farmers, we bring you a selection of top-end matcha blends from some of Japan’s most famous tea regions known for producing exceptional quality matcha. Each of these blends from Uji, Wazuka, and Nishio are made with the best tencha leaves that were carefully shaded, stone milled and blended by skilled tea masters in Japan. Each blend carries its own nuanced, distinct flavours for that refined tea experience at home.
Uji is on everyone’s radar as the premier matcha production region of Japan. But it remains difficult to find the very best matcha unless you know where to look. Developed together with an old, established producer, our Uji Harmony is an exquisite blend that’s full-bodied with savoury umami notes and nutty undertones. This blend boasts an incredible fragrance and mellow sweetness that lingers. Our Uji Harmony is perfect for those seasoned matcha drinkers looking to experience a unique matcha usucha (thin tea) or koicha (thick tea) experience.
Situated in the southern part of Aichi Prefecture, Nishio has a long tradition of making quality matcha. Its abundance in rich soil, pristine rivers, and mild temperature makes it an ideal place for producing top-tier quality tencha leaves for matcha. Our Nishio Bloom has a vibrant green color with a refreshing floral note that imbues a deep umami flavour alongside gentle vegetal flavours. This blend gives an interestingly smooth, velvety finish.
Wazuka is a village nestled in the outskirts of Kyoto Prefecture, where the surrounding hills are dotted with smaller tea estates. The Wazuka Hilltop blend yields a bright and delicate matcha taste that’s smooth and refreshing. This blend has a lighter umami flavour with a very clean sweetness and a subtle aroma. This blend makes a pleasant everyday usucha experience.
