Hoku matcha powder is single cultivar, single estate matcha made from top quality first harvest leaves of the Yabukita cultivar. The Yabukita cultivar is characterized by a wonderfully smooth and well-rounded mouthfeel. It is gentle on the palate and typically offers flavours of steamed greens, butter, nuts, umami and floral notes with little astringency. Top quality Yabukita matcha powders are elegant and luxurious, offering well-balanced flavour profiles and pronounced umami flavours. Although the Yabukita cultivar constitutes the majority of tea production in Japan, it is our tea master’s incredible attention to detail and care that make this tea cultivar truly shine. These Yabukita leaves have been shaded for 21 days, then carefully hand-selected and stone ground by our award-winning tea master to create one of the highest quality matcha powders available.
Brilliant, deep green colour with aromas of spring greens, butter and vanilla. On the palate, a silky smooth, mellow and balanced matcha that provides rich layers of butter, creamed spinach, prominent umami flavours and a velvety smooth finish.
