Matcha Sendo (20g tin)
Our Matcha Sendo is a blend of two classic cultivars, assembled with the talents of M. Koyama, reputed artisan in Uji.
Its silky mousse bears aromas of marine richness layered with nuances of wild berries and dark chocolate. Bold in the fore-mouth with its sophisticated range of flavours all combined with a surprising contrast of finesse and intensity.
Our Matcha Sendo is frequently chosen for Tea Ceremonies by the students of the Urasenke School.
For greater freshness, the Matcha should be used within 6 months of opening and stored in a cool place.
