Matcha Green Tea - Mizuba Tea Co.
We are excited to offer a special matcha from the fields of Wazuka, Japan. When we first shared this matcha in 2021, you all took part in directly supporting a tea farmer in his efforts to transition his fields from conventional to organic farming!
Mr. K's tea field has now officially transitioned from conventional to organic and is officially certified! We are thrilled to continue supporting this special field and the farm's efforts to pursue organic and sustainable farming.
Mr. K has produced a single-origin (from his single tea field), single-cultivar matcha. This is not only the opportunity to truly taste the terroir from the field but also to get a good understanding of the characteristics of the cultivar Okumidori and how it can express its flavors in matcha. You may have tried our Okumidori Sencha, and now is a great opportunity to try Okumidori in another facet as matcha!
From our producers: "This Okumidori matcha brings out the taste and flavor of the cultivar very clearly without being overwhelming. The full-bodied liquor delivers a savory taste and covers your tongue with a smooth and silky foam. A fresh green aroma remains in your mouth, reminding you of the tea field (located in a hilly area). As the Tencha leaves were dried over high heat, the liquor offers sesame notes.
Flavor Profile: Note that this is not a sweet matcha -- but that's the beauty of it! Not all matcha is made to be sweet on the palate. Take this opportunity to enjoy a deeply savory and smooth flavor without earthiness or astringency. This matcha has a round, full and satisfying body to the tea with light, toasted sesame notes. We also really enjoy notes of green walnut and (in the best way) humid moss. The Mizuba team says, "It's very grounding." You can try this matcha as koicha for an intense, yet exhilarating mineral, rich, and oceanic experience!
