Matcha "Hoshi no Tsuyu"
This matcha is warm and roasty. Its floral and low-hitting notes are brightened by the scent of pine and green plant, giving it an overall resemblance to a summer forest floor. You’ll feel the sun and fallen petals in this matcha.
Origin: Yame County, Fukuoka Prefecture
. . .
This matcha is from Yame County, Fukuoka Prefecture on the southernmost Japanese island of Kyushu. It is from a small village called Hoshino, before it was merged with neighbouring villages to form the expanded city of Yame. Yame is located in a mountainous area with the Hoshino River that flows from the east to the west, creating an ideal climate for growing high-quality tea. The land is fertile, altitude is higher, and the air is moist and foggy. Tea trees grow slowly under these conditions, which results in complexity and depth in the tea’s sweetness and savory “umami” flavors.
