KIWAMI SINGLE ORIGIN MATCHA - 100g
Kiwami means "ultimate" or "extreme." As such, our Kiwami matcha is our highest grade of matcha. It comes from single-cultivar tea leaves, ground from hand-picked tea leaves of the renowned Okumidori cultivar in Shizuoka, Japan. The Okumidori cultivated tea variety is very ideal for making into matcha. Our Kiwami matcha has a balanced umami flavor, with tasting notes of floral, honey, and cream. It is the best matcha we've ever tasted.
This matcha is pesticide-free, ground from first-harvest tea leaves grown on a single estate — because we believe you should know where your matcha’s been and the journey it took to get to you, farm-to-whiskTM.
Matcha grows through the winter, and for the final 3-4 weeks of growth, it’s shaded — this is part of the traditional matcha-making process that gives matcha its umami flavor and rich green color. What’s special about this matcha is that it’s grown in a really special way: we know the exact farm that provided 100% of the matcha in this tin (aka it’s not a blend), and the necessary shade is provided by solar panels that generate power for nearby cities. Plus, it's pesticide free and only uses organic food scraps as organic fertilizer that is produced by the local community to maintain a closed-loop system.
