Airily light on the palate, and yet incredibly rich in flavour, the Velvet Matcha represents the product of five generations of experience in tea farming in a region with centuries-long history of matcha cultivation. Created by the award-winning tea master Uejima Noriyasu, it is classed as a ceremonial-grade koicha (‘thick tea’), designed to be whisked into a viscous, tongue-coating paste that glides through the mouth, distributing its cool, spring flavours.
Each 30-gram comes covered in paper wrapping of various patterns.
For the thinner, frothier experience of an usucha, we recommend Uejima-san’s Elegance Matcha.
