Matcha is one of the world’s most refined flavors, with each tin carrying the distinct characteristics of its region and producer. It made with care will have a depth of flavor unrivaled in the food world, encompassing a soft delicacy and profound expression of the taste Japan knows as ‘umami’. Add to this the beautiful cultural history of ‘sado’ (Japanese tea ceremony), and the impeccable health benefits, and you have something worth exploring casually or in depth.
