Matcha Yatakagami is the highest quality Matcha produced in Japan. Each leaf for this item is specially selected and carefully picked by our farmers' skilled hands. Today most tea leaves are trimmed by machine and traditional hand picked Matcha is rarely grown and is therefore very precious. The flavor and aroma of hand picked tea is much more mellow and smooth than tea trimmed by machine.
This quality Matcha from Uji is packaged in individual portions in 2 g bags. This is a response to the demands of customers who consume Matcha during travel or sport. It is prepared very simply using a shaker in any sealed vessel, either in hot or cold water according to your own preference. The powder is of a clear green colour, and the beverage has a delicate, sweet flavour. Thanks to its packaging in individual portions to be consumed immediately after opening, the Matcha remains fresh for a very long time.
Our Matcha is Ichibancha, it comes from the first time of the year, and it originates from Uji region in the province of Kyoto, which is the oldest locality for production of Japanese green tea. Like Gyokuro tea, tea leaves grown in the shade are used for production of Matcha tea. Thanks to the slower growth of the shaded bushes, the tea leaves have a larger content of amino acids, which provide a sweeter taste of the resulting tea.
This Matcha was produced primarily for use in baking and cooking, by entirely natural procedures. Gyokuro tea leaves, which contain a whole range of active substances, were used for the production of this tea powder. Enjoy the full aroma and flavour of green tea also in your meals and sweet snacks.
