Morimoto Matcha Gyokujou is a really high quality Matcha for Japanese tea ceremony, but still at a quite affordable price. Produced by and sourced directly from our tea associates, Haruyo and Shigeru Morimoto, it is an exquisitely emerald tea with lots of Umami and sweetness.
Only the most delicate leaves of the tea bush variety Oku Midori are ground gently into a fine powder. Before this, the tea bushes are shaded for about two till three weeks with black nets (kabuse). Haruyo and Shigeru Morimoto chose this bush variety for this elegant matcha because of the Oku Midori’s depth in flavour with a pleasant and delicate umami and because of its fine sweetness. The shading supports all these characteristics. As it is ground on a ceramic mill and not on granite, its texture is very fine. This is due to the top-class leaves that are only used for this matcha.
We also have an exclusive to Tchai-Ovna matcha gift set which includes a tin of Morimoto Matcha, a finely crafted bamboo whisk, a specially moulded matcha whisk stand and a beautiful hand painted Haruko bowl.
