Premium Ceremonial Grade.
Matcha Tsuki is crafted with first-flush, organically grown Okumidori leaves, picked in the first week of May and ground under traditional stone mills. Tsuki is a superb matcha that contrasts beautifully with the upfront floral fragrance of Matcha Taiyō. Instead, we have a matcha with a more grounded character with deep marine notes of kombu. This is backed by subtle notes of cooked spinach, a light sweetness and just enough astringency to make it interesting.
Grown and produced by the Nakai family, the current being the eighth generation to carry on the craft and tradition of authentic, loose leaf organic tea. In 1980 the family returned to the traditional way of farming by abandoning chemical fertilizers and pesticides and instead, let nature do what it has always done...take care of herself.
This quality of organic matcha would typically retail for $30.
