[Features of Uji matcha tea]
The fresh greenery of the middle of May... Picking Uji matcha tea starts after around 99 nights have passed (the beginning of May is the 88th day). It is picked when the plant has 5 leaves and the 5th leaf has a sprout.
Quality matcha tea that is used in tea ceremonies etc is carefully hand-picked, not only in ancient times, but also today.
The picked tea leaves are manufactured the same day. They are steamed without rubbing and then dried using a traditional method to create tencha, a raw material of matcha powder.
This is carefully ground using a millstone to create Uji matcha tea.
