PRODUCT DETAILS

Modern Heritage Grade, Matcha Kuwari uses only leaves from the region of Zenjyoji in Ujitawara. The family named it “KUWARI” which was the name of Zenjyoji before the middle of the Heian era.

Zenjyoji area, where the Nishide family is located, is a small district at the side of the Tawara River, a tributary of Uji River. The Zenjyoji temple was first built in 987, and the lands in this area was administered by the temple for centuries.

The Tencha is blended and refined by Nishide-san and then ground into fine Matcha powder at his partner's matcha stone mill factory which is the oldest in Uji. The leaves themselves are shaded under modern canopy shading for some 40 days (varies from year to year) for an extra rich savory umami flavor.

Kuwari was awarded the Silver Medal at the Japanese Tea Selection Paris competition.


 




FLAVOR PROFILE 

Characterized by its rich aroma, full-bodied mellow sweetness, and vivid jade green color, Kuwari is a must-have for teaheads. 
Smooth, medium-thick mouth feeling, long finish, juicy, slightly astringency that turns into sweetness on the tongue. Full of Umami with flavors of a fresh ocean breeze, Nori seaweed, and raw asparagus.
