Matcha Iwai no Shiro++


Hiroshi Kobayashi, owner and operator of Shogyokuen Tea Factory, is an award winning blender, and one of 13 tea professionals in Japan who hold the top rank of tea appraisal, level 10. 

The delicious blend of tencha leaves (tea leaf processed into flakes) by master blender, CEO Hiroshi Kobayashi, has created an exquisite matcha for tea ceremony practitioners. Iwai no Shiro, literally the "white of celebration", is a matcha with excellent, smooth umami flavor perfect for usucha.

From Harrison: 

The color on this matcha is absolutely incredible. Vibrant green, with very little astringency. 
Something that makes this so special is the sharper sweetness of raspberries, and lesser umami from what you would find further south. This is a perfect every day matcha for anyone, and Shogyokuen consistently serves nothing but consistent high quality.

This is the serious stuff. In America - you hear the words 'Ceremonial', 'Culinary', 'Conventional'; all of the C's of matcha. Well, in Japan, it isn't really like that. By no means is matcha uniform in price over there, but they are most definitely leaps & bounds ahead of us in terms of quality. 

So, we went to the source... and the results were astounding. Here is one of our first ever matcha sku's we ever brought in - and despite what your palette may tell you - this isn't even the best one we bought.
