Master blender and CEO of Shogyokuen, Hiroshi Kobayashi, has created an exquisite Matcha for tea ceremony practitioners. This truly delicious blend of Tencha leaves (tea leaf processed into flakes) is named Izumi no Shiro. It means the “white of the wellspring.” He created a Matcha with excellent, smooth umami flavor, which is perfect for Usucha or mixed as Matcha Latte.
The dark green color, coupled with unique hints of sea breeze, gives way to a beautiful, Umami-rich Usucha. Extremely easy to foam up! Izumi No Shiro leaves a pleasant and rich taste of fresh-cut grass and young peas in your mouth and throat, combined with a slight astringency that turns to a round sweetness on your tongue.
