Matcha – Handpicked Tsuyuhikari – Ceremonial Grade – Nishio, Aichi


This handpicked tsuyuhikari matcha was offered at the Japanese Tea Marathon in 2021, and many were fascinated with the tastes.  The sweet fragrance like sakura mochi, a Japanese pink rice cake filled with sweet bean paste wrapped with a salted cherry leaf.  Strong umami and sweetness, and comfortable aftertaste like avocado.
