H2 - HOUSE MATCHA - Yoshida's Uji Hikari
10.09.20: today we are milling Yoshida Sans Uji Hikari tencha.
This is the tencha that Yoshida San uses in 雲龍 (Un Ryu), consistently one of our tea bars most popular matcha items. We are milling this tea in Vancouver for the first time!
Un Ryu is a superb, crisp and bright matcha. It was designed as an everyday treat; its smoothness, however, makes it also a pretty good choice for koicha. We will report our assessment of our milling on Friday pm.
We would love to hear what you think!
About our House Mill:
In 2018, after visiting several Japanese matcha mill producers, we purchased our first grinder. The objective was to micro-mill hojicha and a variety of tisanes (like dok anchan, for our Blue Matcha).
After playing with the machine and falling in love with freshly milled matcha, we decided to splurge on a second machine, located at our tea bar, to offer other matcha geeks some of the freshest tea possible. We select a rotating assortment of tencha from some of our favourite growers (preserved frozen, in airtight containers). Geoff and Baily micro-mill small batches every week or two, experimenting with different grinding variables, to offer a delicious tea for every day enjoyment.
