This matcha comes from a blend of tea leaves sourced from several small plot farms in Uji, Kyoto. The tea leaves are selected and stone-milled by a fourth generation tea producer.
More on matcha: Matcha originated in China, where monks drank the beverage for its high caffeine content during meditations. During the 12th century, as Buddhism spread to Japan, matcha was introduced to Kyoto where its popularity boomed. Now, Kyoto is the mecca of matcha production in Japan.
