From Yoshida Meicha-en in Kyoto this kiwame (ultimate or extreme) matcha is the highest grade of matcha from one of the oldest, most renowned tea farms in Japan. In the traditional home of Japanese matcha, this award-winning tea farm is famous for its matcha and gyokuro teas. Carefully grown in special rich soil, hand-picked and stone ground this limited supply tea is a work of love. It has a roasted nutty cocoa aroma with a hint of sweet grass, a rich nutty malty flavour with a slight, bright bitter edge and a rich creamy finish that coats your palate. Also great for koicha (thick tea).
