LEARN: About Yoshida San's Uji Hikari Matcha

Posted by Pedro Villalon on

Deliciously bright, crisp and creamy

The cultivar:  Uji Hikari (宇治ひかり) originated in the Kyoto region.  It is used primarily for gyokuro and matcha, often blended with other cultivars.

Why this tea?  Yoshida San decided to express the unique, beautiful character of an oftentimes blended tea cultivar.  The result is a gorgeous drink, with notes of celery, kale and almond butter.  

The Grower:  we love the Yoshida family in Uji.  They’re kind, warm hearted, and have been making tea for a few hundred years.  They know what they’re doing.

This tea was stone ground on April 2019 and flown to Vancouver. 

Please try a bowl at our tea bar!  We’d love to whisk one for you.  If you live far away, please check our online store.  We ship through Canada Post, Expedited Parcel, and deliver to most places in North America within one week.
