Thanks to our good relationships with a tea blender and a 4th generation tea farm owner in Kagoshima, we are able to bring you the best of Kagoshima matcha at a fantastic price. This blend is not typically exported outside Japan.
This blend comprises leaves grown in the Chiran region of Kagoshima. This is an elevated area near a volcano and the rich fertile soils provide a unique terroir. Many interesting blends can be created from the tea plants grown in the Chiran region of Kagoshima, and the tea plants are shade grown, processed into tencha at modern facilities and only ground into matcha powder right before it leaves Japan for the USA.
