About this tea

Matsu no Midori is a classic Uji Matcha for everyday thin-tea (usucha) produced by our old friend Hisaki Horii who is an 8th generation gyokuro and matcha producer. He is running his family’s Uji, Kyoto-based tea business Hekisuien, which was established in 1867. 松の翆 “Matsu no Midori” means dark green like the leaves of a pine tree. In the Zen world, the green color of pine and the endurance of the tree itself is auspicious because pine trees keep their green leaves even in winter. Matsu no Midori has an enduring green presence with a slight note of hazelnut from the traditional bricks in the furnace used for baking by Mr. Horii. This approachable matcha is particularly full-bodied and slightly sweet.

Uji

Kyoto, Japan

The small city of Uji is located on the southeast border of Kyoto and is renowned and widely considered to produce some of the best teas. The lower elevation tea gardens along the Uji River have warmer soil, which are favored when producing shade-grown teas like tencha and gyokuro.
