Ground to order, we purchase our matcha in small quantities from our producer every month to ensure that it is as fresh as possible. If this item is not available, please add yourself to the waitlist and we will let you know when we receive more. Thank you very much for your understanding.

The preferred choice by Urasenke Japanese tea master Zabosai Oiemoto (坐忘斎家元). This ceremonial matcha for thin tea (usucha) has wonderfully fresh palate, softly aroma, and soft finish. It uses the same leaves as our ikenoshiro matcha; differences across production lots distinguish the two teas.

This tea comes from Hoshinoseichaen, an esteemed matcha producer in Yame, Fukuoka, Japan that has been perfecting matcha since 1946. A preferred producer by traditional Japanese tea ceremony (chadō), this producer works closely with multiple schools to craft teas that honor flavor and tradition. Hoshinoseichaen holds its matcha to stringent quality standards by ensuring its matcha powder maintains a uniform particle size—a necessary component for creamy, smooth bowls of matcha.

We present this tea to you in the original packaging of Hoshinoseichaen, which is distinguishable by those who study Japanese tea ceremony.
