YUKIRO is our finest Ceremonial Grade Uji Matcha.
Produced in small batches from young and tender leaves that lack of any astringent flavours, YUKIRO brews a gentle and sweet liquor that slowly unveils a surprising complexity: initial fresh notes of young peas and green sprouts give way to a nutty and savoury profile with a lasting Umami finish.
We are proud to be offering this delicious artisanal Matcha blended in collaboration with Mr. Morita Haruhide - a highly respected Kyoto Tea Master and Blender that has been awarded countless titles and appraisals, including a 9th level Tea Master dan that is held by only a handful of Japanese.
We suggest brewing our YUKIRO with a ratio of 2g Matcha to 60ml of water for a rich and intense brew that fully expresses the subtle and complex flavours of this Matcha.
We tested the L-Theanine levels of this Matcha, which shows an outstanding count of26.7 mg/g (6x higher than average commercial-grade Matcha). Tested by APAF Australian Proteome Analysis Facility at Macquarie University.
Flavour profile: Sweet and balanced, with floral, nutty and savoury undertones and a long Umami finish.
Harvest & Growth: 1stharvest(spring) / shade-grown for 30 days / hand-picked
Origin: Grown and stone-milled in Uji, Kyoto.
Storage: Seal package immediately after use and store in a cool dry place, away from sunlight, moisture, and strong odours.
Preparing this Matcha using our Chasen Bamboo Whisk would allow optimal aeration and mixing of the powder, creating a smoother and creamier brew.

Packaging: Biophotonic glass, also known as Miron or Violet glass, is a type of deeply coloured, 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.
