Yame Matcha - Seiho (Powder - 20 g)
The second highest grade matcha from Hoshino Seicha-en in the Yame region. A grade lower than the Premium Matcha, this is still a fine matcha tea that meets the requirements of the Japanese tea ceremony. It is made from hand picked, first flush tencha stone ground into a fine powder. Still a rich, creamy tea with a bright green color and natural sweetness, but with a slight bitterness.
