About Blend SE
We've unearthed a dreamy and rare matcha here. It's made in a valley in Uji (Kyoto) that's been producing great matcha for at least 400 years. If you ever want to know what pure umami tastes like, look no further. The finish can rev on for several minutes, leaving you to wonder how an aroma and texture can linger for so long. Pure electric green color, with aromas that exude fresh chocolate.
Matcha of this quality requires the time-tested "honzu" method of cultivation and harvest, the ancient canopy made with bamboo poles, reeds, hemp string, and straw to filter out sunlight. In the Ogura area, there is a large pond where thick reeds grow. Every leaf is coddled, in ways only obsessive Japanese matcha farmers can dream up, from first bud to ground matcha.
Drink it thick.
