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

Yame, Fukuoka is a tea producing region famous for gyokuro 玉露 and matcha. It is located on the southernmost Japanese island of Kyushu. The tea comes from what was once a small village named Hoshino, before it merged with neighbouring villages to form the city of Yame. Yame spans a mountainous area, with the Hoshino River flowing through it from East to West.
The land here is very fertile and, at a higher altitude, the air is continually moist and foggy. Tea trees grow steadily and slowly in these conditions, which gives both their tea’s sweetness and its savory, “umami” flavors depth and complexity.
