This matcha is produced by a group of organic farmers in Aichi Prefecture, which neighbors our prefecture of Shizuoka to the west. It is a very good quality organic matcha with a deep, mellow flavor that is versatile enough for ceremonial or casual drinking as desired. It is ground by stone in the traditional manner.
We strongly recommend consuming matcha as quickly as possible after opening the package. Matcha will begin to lose its color and aroma rapidly if allowed to sit around after opening. Pleases drink it quickly so as to fully enjoy the best qualities this tea has to offer! If you buy multiple packs, we suggest storing them in a freezer and taking them out to sit unopened at room temperature for 24 hours before consumption to avoid condensation damage. When storing in refrigeration, make sure that it is fully sealed to avoid adulteration from other food aromas.
We believe that this is a good guide for how to prepare ceremonial style matcha: https://www.marukyu-koyamaen.co.jp/english/enjoy/maccha.html
