Uji Maccha Imperial
This Matcha is made using young leaves, which are hand picked from the first flush harvest. This is the highest grade of Usu-cha (thin tea) that we carry and is perfect for receiving special guests at the tea ceremony. As the name suggests this Matcha is from Uji, on the outskirts of the ancient capital Kyoto, where Matcha has been manufactured for over 800 years.
About Maccha Variety
Maccha is powdered green tea traditionally used for the Japanese tea ceremony. Using the leaves from tea bushes grown in the shade just like Gyokuro, the tea is very finely grounded by special stone mills. Lighter green Maccha is considered better quality and is sweeter. Darker green Maccha tends to be a little bitter. Maccha is often used for flavoring sweets.
