Stone-ground organic matcha powdered green tea.
Made from rare Kamairi variety first-flush spring harvest tea leaves.
Besides making tea, you can also use matcha as an ingredient and to make garnishing. Please see below.
The health benefits of matcha by far exceed those of any other type of green tea. When you drink matcha you ingest the whole tea leaf in powder form, not just the brewed water.
This matcha is made from pan-fried Kamairi, a very special green tea with a smooth, sophisticated and rich flavor. Making Kamairi is a labor-intensive process, and it accounts for only about 2% of all Japanese tea production.
Fresh tea leaves are immediately dried after harvesting for ten minutes at 300 °C. Next, the leaves are rolled and dried in a four step, intensely manual process. This time-tested Japanese technique yields a unique fragrance, with a remarkably complex, smooth and rich taste.
All-organic. Grown, harvested and processed by traditional farmers in lush green highlands of Kyushu island in southern Japan.

Matcha-shio is Japanese traditional seasoned salt with a sophisticated, clean and pleasantly complex taste.
You can use as quick garnishing for your vegetable dishes, seafood, chicken, steaks, eggs and much more. It also works great as a rub for poultry, fish and meats.
On top of its unique flavor and aroma, Matcha-shio adds a natural, wonderfully vivid green color to foods.
Making Matcha-shio is about as simple as it gets. Mix some in advance and keep it on-hand for seasoning your meals as needed.

That being said, This is the brightest green, most beautiful creamy Matcha I have ever tried.Just buy some and compare it to any other you have purchased and see the difference! To fully enjoy its flavor,I highly recommend you learn how the Matcha needs to be prepared. It's special. It is worth it to do a little research on how to properly make a cup of Matcha tea. Youtube it! You can make it hot or cold! Learn how to make it the beautiful traditional Japanese way with a sifter and a bamboo whisk and Matcha bowl and I guarantee you will feel just the process of making this special tea will be something you look forward to. It is a beautiful way to serenely start your busy day or a calm way to end your day.WAWAZA THANK YOU for my favorite tea!
