Asahi (Jas-Organic) Matcha Powder

TR's Matcha Asahi (JAS-ORGANIC) comes from a JAS-certified organic tea garden that uses sustainable, environmental-friendly, solar energy for tea production in Shizuoka, Japan. For those who haven't been to Japan, Shizuoka is Japanese green tea capital where many celebrated Japanese tea gardens are located with a scenic view of the famous Mountain Fuji. 

If you're a matcha connoisseur, you'd probably know how difficult it is to get a decent quality, organically grown, ceremonial grade matcha. Often organic matcha sold in the market is so bitter, herbaceous and astringent, which is far from the iconic, mellow and creamy, vegetal sweetness we look for in the properly shade-grown, quality ceremonial matcha. So when we discovered this organically grown, delicious Matcha Asahi, we were so happy and excited about its creamy, vegetal and nutty flavour and smooth silky texture, lacking in bitterness and astringency. 

A rare opportunity to try top ceremonial grade, organic, single-cultivar matcha sourced from an eco-friendly, sustainable tea farm in Shizuoka, Japan. 

Tips for Tea Connoisseurs 

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. 

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.
