Ingredient: Organic Matcha grown in Uji, Japan
Uji is pronounced “ooh-jee.” Uji is a small area located in the southern part of Kyoto, Japan. It is a quiet countryside rich in nature, and you will also find many historical temples and shrines nearby. Uji is also the birthplace of the Japanese green tea method, which was born in the 18th century. Green tea made by the Japanese method became an instant hit when it was introduced in Kyoto, Japan, and the method spread nationwide. Before then, green tea was made by the Chinese method. This Japanese method brings out more “Umami (pronounced ‘ooh-mah-mee’),” savory flavor, from green tea leaves. Modern science also discovered the Japanese green tea method retains higher levels of natural components, such as EGCG, in tea leaves than the Chinese method. Grown at a single organic estate in Uji, which has been dedicated to growing organic green teas for more than 40 years, this Matcha is a masterpiece brought from the best of nature.
SEI MEE TEA proudly offers this sophisticated Uji Matcha to Matcha connoisseurs. Great as a gift and also a wonderful treat for your special occasions. When you make a cup, savor the whole experience: Be delighted by the vibrant aroma, beautiful bright jade green color, and silky smooth taste, which we call “serene elegance.” To enjoy Umami (ooh-mah-me), the savoriness this highest quality tea offers, use pure water at 150 to 175º F.
