About the climate

Surrounded by other farms. Almost no trees around, which makes that the farm receives abundant sunlight.

Surroundings and environmental circumstances
Steep sloping surface, which makes harvest labor intensive, but has the benefit that water drainage is good. Since no fertilizer was used during the bush’s growth, the impact from the soil on the flavor is direct. The authentic aroma of this cultivar adds to the tea’s appeal.

Additional comments:

Use one teaspoon of matcha and 70~90cc of hot water and add into a tea bowl.
Use a bamboo tea whisk to whisk a froth onto the tea.

Additional impressions:

A creamy bowl of raspberry fruity and dark chocolate sweet naturally produced matcha.
When prepared and whisked in a sufficiently moderated dose, the tea has a tremendous rejuvenating effect.
It’s taste is slightly bitter at first, but quickly reveals some hints of raspberry and dark chocolate.

    very special matcha, slightly bitter but with very nice dark chocolate and hints of fruit taste 🙂

    Another amazing matcha from The Tea Crane. I note a subtle earthiness in the flavor and the perfect amount of natural creaminess.
