This roasted matcha powder is recommended for a cup of morning that is a little more special than usual. An insanely luxurious roasted powdered matcha made with only first-grade tea leaves grown with great care in the Mino Shirakawa area in the eastern part of Gifu Prefecture.
Hoji Matcha TENQOO, which uses only first-class tea leaves from Mino Shirakawa, which has an elegant fragrance and richness that you have never felt before. This product is 200 serving size (1 cup 1g, 1/2 teaspoon), and even the highest grade hoji matcha can be enjoyed at this price.
Japanese 天空(Tenqoo) means airy region of the sky. As the name suggests, it is grown without pesticides in tea fields at an altitude of 850m, which is by far the highest. This altitude is almost twice as high as other tea-producing areas, so heat and cold gap of the day is large, and the umami sweetness accumulates in the tea leaves. In addition, the river mist that rises from the foot moderates the sunlight and makes the tea leaves soft with little astringency. It is supported by traditional agriculture that has continued climbing steep mountains for 600 years.
Precious Mino Shirakawa first-pick tea leaves accounts for less than 0.04% of Japanese tea leaves production. We were able to produce this rare first-pick tea leaves as yearly limited production Hoji Matcha TENQOO series.
The rich flavor comes from roasting with the highest technology. We ground it carefully so that it goes through your throat even more smoothly. We have created a roasted matcha powder that boasts an exquisite balance of aroma and richness that is not found in conventional hojicha powder.
Whether you make it into a latte, sprinkle it on yogurt, or mix it with caramel or chocolate, you can have a blissful time. It is such a gem that makes you want to wake up a little earlier than usual.
