Matcha Uji (40g tin)
A delicious Matcha with an excellent quality/price ratio brought to us by the Osafumi brothers, second generation producers.
This Matcha comes from the mythical region of Uji, near Kyoto (the former capital of Japan), and more precisely from Ujitawara, hometown of Nagatani Soen, inventor of the Sencha tea style.
Its fresh and tasty emulsion offers a velvety texture and a slightly bitter-sweet flavor, with notes of oily grass and snow peas. A touch of gentle iodine tickles the palate, overshadowing everything.
For greater freshness, the Matcha should be used within 6 months of opening and stored in a cool place.
