Tips for Tea Connoisseurs 

Matcha Okumidori comes from an award-winning, historical tea garden in Uji, Japan. Uji is the birthplace of Japanese green tea where many celebrated Japanese tea gardens produce the best Matcha throughout the whole of the Japanese archipelago. 

Our Matcha Okumidori is a single-origin, single-estate, single-cultivar matcha made from carefully shade-grown, Okumidori tea cultivar. Okumidori cultivar is known to be highly fragrant and it is used to make Sencha, Gyokuro and matcha. We often find a distinctive floral note in green tea made from Okumidori cultivar. 

On the nose of dry matcha, it offers a sweet, buttery, baked aroma with a slight grassy hint. Once prepared as Usucha (thin matcha), Matcha Okumidori offers a powerful, full-bodied, velvety infusion with biscuity, nutty (almond, macadamia), steamed buttered greens flavour.  Among all our matcha, this is probably the most full-bodied matcha. We recommend this Matcha Okumidori to matcha lovers who enjoy powerful, full-bodied but yet creamy and mellow matcha.  

Matcha is one of the superfoods, highly rich in antioxidants and amino acids that are known to boost our immune system and prevent cancers. Explore our range of top ceremonial grade Matcha to find your favourite daily matcha and enhance your daily vitality. This deliciously nutty and velvety matcha will be your perfect daily companion to maintain your sense of well-being in the modern, hectic life. 

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.

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.
