This Morihan organic matcha product is made from only organic tea leaves grown in Uji region of Kyoto.
Uji has been a special place for matcha since the very first matcha was created here in Uji in the 16th century. Blessed with its good soil and topography, Uji has been famous and recognized as the No.1 tea harvest region since the 15th century. More importantly, a new method of tea cultivation was developed in Uji in the 16th century, which is crucial to production of matcha and is called “Oishita Saibai” or “shade-grown”. Since then, Uji has been playing an important role in the matcha industry.
The manufacturer Morihan or Kyoeiseicha Co., Ltd. has been located in this special region and has been manufacturing high quality matcha for over 180 years.
Enjoy this traditional Morihan organic matcha as a straight hot or cold brewed matcha tea for daily use.
This matcha has been certified as an organic product by JAS (Japanese Agricultural Standard), and many other countries, like the U.S. or the EU, consider JAS organic certification as being equal to their own.
Today, there are many serving methods from traditional Matcha to modern Matcha Latte styles.
Here we introduce a very simple method to make pure Matcha tea.
That's it. Now you can enjoy the best taste and flavor of the Uji Matcha!!
Please check the video below for the details.
Proper water selection is very important for making Matcha tea.
If available, please use soft water (water with less mineral content).
High mineral content may degrade the original Matcha flavor.
It has been reported that Matcha has many positive effects for our health.
Following is the list of major ones among them.
EGCG Epigallocatechin gallate contained in Matcha tea provides the effect of efficiently burning body fat and thus it is reported that Catechin is effective for prevention of obesity and dieting.
EGCG Epigallocatechin gallate has a strong antioxidant action, thus it provides a strong effect to remove reactive oxygen leading to aging. Catechin is also expected to prevent wrinkles and sagging of the skin.
L-theanine content is particularly high, which is effective to soften the mood and have a relaxing effect.
Vitamin C contained in Matcha cooperates with catechin to suppress melanin pigment and thus it is effective for skin beautification.
Fluoride compounds in Matcha are effective for tooth decay prevention and mouth deodorizing.
There are many value size packages of Matcha sold on the Internet. Is value size really a good value for your money spent?
According to experts, we'd better drink Matcha within 2 weeks once opened, because the flavor and the ingredients good for health are fairly quickly deteriorated as time passes. What kind of value do you find on the value size after the flavor and positive effects have gone?
Considering the delicate properties, our recommendation is “purchasing five of 30g package with sealed zipper” instead of a “value size”. With a 30g package, you can enjoy 15 to 20 cups of fresh Matcha tea for 2 to 3 weeks. When you finish the 1st package, the next fresh package will let you enjoy the best condition of Matcha again!
Please keep in mind that the original properties last only for a few months even in a sealed package.
The history of Uji tea goes back to the 13th Century and Uji tea became famous in the 15th Century recognized as the No.1 tea harvest region in Japan.
In the latter half of the 16th century, an innovative tea cultivation method was introduced in Uji Region, and extremely high-grade Matcha started to be produced.
Uji Macha soon began to play an important role in Chanoyu (The Way of Tea) because the famous tea master SEN no Rikyu considered Uji Matcha the best for his “Wabi-cha”, which became the origin of modern tea ceremonies.
And there Uji Matcha has taken a very important part of Japanese tea ceremonies and become the top brand in Japanese Green Tea Culture.
If you think of buying green tea powder now, try the highest quality of taste and flavor of Uji Matcha.
Our Organic Matcha has been produced through its persistent agricultural and process development in Uji Region along with such a long history of the Way of Tea tradition.
