Our "Heritage Premium" is a wonderful matcha from Uji, Kyoto and it has an intensely rich level of umami with a nice creamy texture and very little astringency. The leaves for this matcha are grown and produced in almost complete traditional style which means the leaves are shaded for 40 days, handpicked, produced into tencha leaves, refined and ground in stone mills. We recommend drinking this matcha pure and in a traditional way, with a "chasen"(= bamboo whisk) and from a matcha bowl. Packaged in a traditional washi paper bag.
