Ceremonial Matcha - 20g (0.7 oz)
Best Before Date : 12 / JAN / 2019
What is Best Before Date? : It tells us how long that food will keep its original quality. It doesn't have anything to do with a food's safety.
The date is 7 months after grinding Tencha to make matcha powder. This very short term comes from a real passion that our brand wants to offer fresh Matcha!
A smooth organic matcha tea with no notes of bitterness or harshness. It foams beautifully when whisked, and is the most flavourful tea in our organically produced matcha range.
This premium grade tea is best suited to use on special occasions, and makes an excellent gift for tea-lovers.
Produced by Marukyu-Koyamaen (Uji, Kyoto, JAPAN), one of the top green tea production companies in Japan.
Well respected amongst tea connoisseurs, Marukyu-Koyamaen pride themselves on the excellent quality of their products.
