Description

Our highest grade of ceremonial matcha.

This rare matcha is of a class traditionally reserved for the most exclusive of tea ceremonies. It has an unbelievable aroma, flavor, and energizing focusing effect unlike any other matcha. Matcha Houju may be prepared as usucha ("thin tea") or koicha ("thick tea"). Houju, literally "precious longevity" or "precious eternity" is the konomi, or "treasured matcha" of our producer and partner Hekisuien.


Origin

Kyoto Prefecture, Japan
