HANAE is our signature Ceremonial Grade Uji Matcha.
Suitable for everyday use, HANAE brews a rich and silky liquor with a good balance of sweetness/light astringency, subtle floral notes, light Umami and a pleasant silky mouthfeel.
A blend with enough delicacy to be whisked into Usucha (traditional Matcha Tea) while also being characterized by a rich body that allows it to be mixed into premium blended drinks, making a great choice for Cold Brew Matcha and high-grade Matcha latte.
Flavour profile: Smooth, rich and earthy with subtle floral notes, light astringency and a refreshing finish of light Umami.
Origin: Grown and stone-milled in Uji, Kyoto (Japan)
*Packaging info: our Biophotonic Glass jar makes a great reusable, airtight, light-proof and eco-friendly container to store our Matcha. Once your initial 30g batch runs out, simply purchase our 30g Refill Bags to top up your jar (read more about the light-blocking properties of this jar below).
Storage: Seal package immediately after use and store in a cool dry place, away from sunlight, moisture, and strong odors.
Preparing this Matcha using our Chasen Bamboo Whisk would allow optimal aeration and mixing of the powder, creating a smoother and creamier brew.
For more specifications on all our grades please refer to our Grades Chart.
Packaging: Biophotonic glass, also known as Miron or Violet glass, is a type of deeply colored, almost opaque glass that naturally filters the spectrum of visible sunlight, only allowing through Infra-Red and UVA light, or ‘violet’ light. Because of its natural ability to block light, Biophotonic glass protects precious contents from perishing in sunlight, increasing their shelf life and effectiveness.
