Okumidori matcha is a pesticide-free product. The tea leaves are plucked in the First Flush (first harvest of the year). Our matcha is produced and processed in Wazuka, Kyoto. The tea buds are covered for 22 days.
Due to its milder taste that contains all the health benefits of a matcha, this variety is growing in popularity and is commonly used in other products: sweets, meals, latte, and tea ceremony.
Matcha Production Process:
For our matcha, we harvest our own tea leaves from Wazuka, Kyoto. From harvest, we immediately steam and dry the tea leaves to prevent the leaves from getting fermented/oxidized. We then remove the stems and the veins and grind the dried leaves (called Tencha) into fine matcha powder.

Each serving uses 2 g (~ 1 teaspoon) of matcha.
