Matcha Tokiwa | Organic | 2020

抹茶 常磐

Premium organic Matcha grown and produced by Chiran Nōen in Chiran, Kagoshima. From the first spring harvest (ichibancha) in May 2020 and matured as Tencha until April 2021.



Description | 詳細

Tokiwa is Chiran Nōen’s premium Matcha, suitable for both ‘thick’ (koicha) and ‘thin’ (usucha) tea. Its combination of the two delicate cultivars, Asatsuyu and Okumidori, results in a finely crafted balance between natural sensations of umami and a mild spring-like greenness with no sense of bitterness at all.

Together with its velvety texture and delicate aroma that opens up the moment the carefully stone-ground tea comes in contact with the preheated tea bowl, Tokiwa is a very fine example of the great potential that organically grown Matcha holds.
