This matcha was prized at The All-Japan Competitive Tea Exhibition.
We are fortunate to be able to offer the highest grade of koicha matcha, Tenju. This matcha exhibits a wonderful, earthy aroma and deep, rich flavor with a sweet, smooth finish that is without equal.
Koicha, the highest grade of matcha, is used in Japanese tea ceremony to make tea with a very thick consistency. Because of the very high concentration of matcha to water, koicha matcha must be cultivated and produced from only the very best, fresh young tea leaves. Koicha is characterized by its incredibly bright green color, often called "Jade Dew", and can be described as having a very strong, sweet leaf-like flavor.
