QUALITY MATCHA
(Betsujō Matcha)
30g / 2,000 yen
This Matcha is an extremely fine choice when it is your wish to prepare Usucha.

EXTRA-FINE MATCHA
(Tokujō Matcha)

HOUJICHA POWDER
100g / 800 yen
It isn’t Matcha! But it does share some things in common. The excellence of Uji city’s Matcha and Houjicha alike is renowned. If quality tea is purchased, both have extremely vivid aromas, telling of the sensory voyage ahead. Truth be told, this Houjicha Powder has some simple advantages over Matcha; High quality Matcha powder preserving the experience of Matcha despite being baked and blended, costs a pretty penny. In comparison, this Houjicha Powder of exceptional quality, able to maintain the embodiment of the finest Houjicha, is a steal. Not only can it preserve the flavors and scents of Houjicha tea in pastries, coffee drinks, or any other cuisine, its shelf life outlasts that of a lower-quality Matcha that may be equal to it in price. This Houjicha Powder is as thinly ground as Matcha, and can be used exactly like it, to bring the enchanting, woody, smoky touch of Houjicha to all kinds of confections. And unlike Matcha, it is almost entirely free of caffeine, making the consumption it safe for everyone. The sky is the limit with this Houjicha Powder.
