"When my father was young, he got sick from pesticides. Since then, for more than 40 years, we have focused on organic farming. When you don't use pesticides, you've got to boost the plants' strength and immunity, and create an environment that works with nature. We focus on keeping the soil as natural as possible, with the right balance of nitrogen, carbon, phosphoric acid, potassium, and other minerals. Because our soil is balanced, it's soft and fluffy, which makes for a very good field, and very good flavored tea."

This matcha mixes to a dark green color with a froth like the head on a Guinness and has all the robust taste you'd come to expect from the highest quality ceremonial grade matcha. The taste is more earthy than nutty but isn't overbearingly "grassy" or bitter. It mixes well with warm or cool water and has a creamy mouth feel. This stuff is legit!
I got a gift set that had the "special edition" matchas and this one was my favorite. It is great when you want a really flavorful special cup of matcha!
