"DREAMING OF THE GREEN AND GOLD"
What is Ceremonial Gold Matcha and where does it come from?
This is the very best quality matcha you can find. This ceremonial quality is used in ceremonies and Buddhist temples.
Preparing matcha is an ancient Japanese tradition. Zen boeddhists from Japan encountered matcha during their travels through China. After that the Buddhists developed their own traditions and production methods.
The spring picking of the tencha is done by hand. Hand-picked tencha, however is a rarity. That's why this matcha is so special. This plantation is also picked only once a year. In summer, the plantations are still trimmed, so that they do not proliferate, but then grow quietly until the next spring pick.
It is a single-estate matcha, which means that the leaves are used to make this matcha, all come from the same plantation. So they are not mixed with cheaper inferior leaves. Only the first picking tencha is used. From 14 to 28 days before harvesting, the tea bushes are 90% covered (eclipsed) by tarpaulins. In the shade the leaves make extra chlorophyll and amino acids. The Tencha tea leaves are ground by traditional granite mills to an ultrafine emerald green powder. This powder contains no stems or veins but consists solely of 'leaf meat'.
From a volcanic subsoil, where it is ideal for cultivation. The air and water are extremely pure and the rich volcanic surface (shirasu), in combination with the heavy fog that covers the fields, ensure that the leaves do not freeze in winter, but also that the sunlight is filtered naturally. Photosynthesis does its job very nicely, resulting in a creamy soft umami taste that characterizes matcha. The tea farmer specializes in tea. He knows his plantations and follows the rhythm of nature, looks at the change of the weather, how his soil is in order to deliver the best quality.
