PREMIUM ORGANIC CEREMONIAL MATCHA TEA

$ 50.00

Description

Just as with fine champagne, restrictions in geography and nutrient levels make it extraordinarily challenging to make a stellar organic matcha. Without fertilizer, tea plants often lack the nutrients (and particularly the nitrogen) they need to produce their best leaves. All too often, this results in a sub-par matcha. Thankfully, our Premium Organic Matcha is an exception to this rule. A ceremonial grade, it is handcrafted almost entirely from gyokuro leaves, and traditionally ground with large granite wheels. This rare, organic matcha has a gorgeous chartreuse color with a profoundly sweet, fresh aroma and a light iodine note. It readily froths into a full, pale green, foamy head with a deep green body. The liquid aroma is rich and intensely fresh, without the bitter tones of lesser matchas. Flavors of stewed collard greens, steamed spinach and kale are complemented by a thick, buttery sweetness and a delicate taste of mountain apple tree blossoms. The clean, creamy aftertaste is reminiscent of pureed cream of spinach soup and the delicate astringency of fresh-cut green leaves.

Our matcha comes packaged in a 30 gram tin, and makes 20-30 cups.

This tea is both IMO/Switzerland and USDA Certified Organic.

I've purchased about 10 tins of this Premium Organic Ceremonial Matcha + enjoy it so much! The taste is smooth - no bitterness. Will continue to purchase from American Tea Room because of the quality + the shipping is fast + they always enclose a sample of tea!

I got this matcha from reading other matcha reviews online and I am so happy I did! ATR is awesome and I will be buying more from them when I get the chance, I really liked how they gave me a sample of tea to try with my matcha as well, that was very sweet of them for me being a new customer. I hope to buy the artisan matcha to try to see if I can taste the difference but all around I am very pleased with the product and the service
