HARUNA Organic Ceremonial Matcha
Full-body, smooth Matcha with subtle roasted notes and lingering Umami.
HARUNA is our Organic Ceremonial grade Matcha grown and ground in Kagoshima following the strict regulations set by JAS (Japanese Agricultural Standards of Organic Products).
Organic Matcha requires a lot more effort to be grown, and even more when it needs to meet the high quality requirements of a true Ceremonial grade. Prior to introducing Haruna to our range we have sampled several variety of organic Matcha and nothing has come close to the refined character of this blend.
Haruna showcases an outstanding emerald green colour which brews a bold, intense yet smooth liquor that bursts with roasted notes, earthy flavours and lingering Umami, all delivered in a velvety and silky texture.
*Our Biophotonic Glass jar packaging makes the perfect reusable eco-friendly container to store our Matcha. Once your initial 30g batch runs out, you can simply purchase our 30g Refill Bags to top up your jar.
Flavour profile: Full-body and earthy Matcha with roasted notes, minimal astringency and persistent Umami.
Colour: Deep Emerald Green
Harvest: Young and tender hand picked leaves from the first spring harvest of the season. Tea plants have been shade grown for 24 days to maintain high levels of L-Theanine and minimize astringency.
Origin: Grown and hand-picked in Kagoshima, located within the Kyushu Island, South of Japan.
Storage: Seal jar immediately after use and store in a cool dry place, away from moisture and strong odours.
Packaging: Biophotonic glass, also known as Miron or Violet glass, is a type of deeply coloured, almost opaque glass which 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.
We recommend to prepare this Matcha using our Handcrafted Bamboo Whisk for optimal aeration of the tea and a creamy texture.
