The traditional "stone mill grinding method" has been used for matcha production for many years. The vivid, deep green color can only be created by stone mill grinding.
3. Freshly ground matcha
Carefully-ground matcha has mild umami and a rich flavor. It's delivered in as fresh a state as possible.
[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.
