Asahi Matcha Powder

Matcha Asahi comes from an award-winning, historical tea garden in Uji, Japan. For those who haven't been to Japan, Uji is the birthplace of Japanese green tea where many celebrated Japanese tea gardens are located and reputed to produce the best Matcha throughout the whole of the Japanese archipelago. 

TR's Matcha Asahi is even more special, as it comes from a heritage, family-run tea garden which has been established during the Tensho era. Made from only carefully hand-picked tea leaves of the prestigious Asahi cultivar by our great tea master, Mr. Tanaka, this single cultivar matcha, Matcha Asahi is a classic example of the very best competition grade ceremonial matcha you can find in Japan. 

It's worth noting that many matcha we find in the market are blended, which means tea leaves from different tea cultivars are used to make matcha. This is mainly because blending is a cost-effective option, as the classic, indigenous Uji cultivars (e.g. Asahi, Samidori, Narino, Okunoyama, Gokoh and Uji Hikari) which are used to make the very top ceremonial matcha are really expensive and blending these cultivars with other cultivars can lower down the cost and could also add more balance in terms of their body and mouthfeel. 

However, drinking single-cultivar matcha made from these top elite cultivars that get the first prize in the national tea competition is another level of revelation for our palate. In terms of aroma and flavour, Matcha Asahi tastes like a delicately sweet, buttery pastry, evocative of frangipane. It's so smooth, mellow and creamy and its nutty, umami flavour is persistently long on the palate. 

A truly rare opportunity to try top, award-winning, Koicha grade, single-cultivar matcha from Uji, Japan. 

For Matcha connoisseurs, we highly recommend trying to experience the difference of our top ceremonial grade single-estate, single-cultivar Matcha - Matcha Eroica, Matcha Okunoyama, Matcha Asahi and Matcha Samidori.

What is Matcha?

Matcha is a finely grounded powdered green tea, made from tea leaves shade-grown for 3-6 weeks before the harvest. Due to its limited exposure to the sunshine, tea plants undergo a chain of physiological changes in order to survive, which, in turn, results in the changes of the chemical composition of the tea leaves. Produced this way, Matcha tea is extremely rich in antioxidants and L-theanine. 

Health Benefits of Matcha

Matcha is one of the superfoods known to be highly rich in antioxidants and amino acids. Explore our range of top ceremonial grade Matcha to find your favourite daily matcha and enhance your daily vitality. Our Matcha will be your perfect daily companion to boost your immune system and sense of well-being.

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
