For our first original matcha blend, tea master Masa selected two cultivars: Okumidori (#32), known for its refreshing fragrance, and Samidori, appreciated for its vivid green color and umami taste. Tasting notes are savory, nutty, and smooth.

This matcha is freshly milled at PARU La Jolla. Each 30 g tin takes approximately one hour to fill. Monthly matcha subscription available here.

    About matcha (抹茶)

    Matcha is made from finely ground shade-grown tea leaves called "tencha." It contains about three times the antioxidants of regular green tea and is an excellent source for powerful catechins such as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) that are believed to have cleansing, anti-viral effects.
