Limited Edition 2020: Shimooka-san Samidori Ceremonial Matcha
Our Tea Master, Shimooka-san, is one of the most decorated artisanal producers in Japan, with over 50 years of dedication to his craft. Here, he has hand-blended a rare tea cultivar, Samidori, with just the right amount of Yabukita to achieve a unique and inviting flavor profile.
"Samidori is characterized by its bright color and mellow taste. Yabukita is overall excellent, characterized by a rich sweetness and an elegant aroma. We are blending those two characteristics in a perfect balance with an undertone of deep, broth-like umami flavor."
