Other green tea products

The tea plants used to process Matcha are covered with shade for approximately 30 days before harvest. Tea leaves picked from shaded tea bush are steamed and dried, but without rolling as in other Japanese green tea leaf manufacturing. The dried tea leaves are grounded into powder to make Matcha. We have various grades of Matcha from first class fine aromatic matcha to reasonable house blend Matcha.
Uji Matcha “Jyo no mai”
“Jo no mai” is the Chamei (Tea name) of this matcha. “Jo no mai” (Noh Dance Prelude) is a masterpiece of Shoen UEMURA, Japanese-style painter famous for beautiful women portraits. She was born as the second daughter of a tea leaf merchant owning a shop named “Chikiriya”. With the permission from Atsushi UEMURA the grandson of Shoen, this matcha is named after her most important work.
