A set of pure matcha green tea powders in three different cultivars: yabukita, samidori, and okumidori. Single cultivar matchas grown and produced by the same farmer allows you to taste the difference that different tea plants can have on the flavor.
Identified in 1908 by Sugiyama Hikosaburo in Shizuoka, and officially registered in 1953, the yabukita cultivar is the most common tea plant cultivar in Japan with an approximately 80% share. The rich flavor of the leaves makes it popular for sencha, but it provides a weaker umami taste and is not usually used for matcha as a result.
The samidori cultivar is a tencha specific cultivar, with a bright color and rich umami flavor perfect for matcha.
Okumidori Matcha is a vivid green Uji matcha made from the tea plant cultivar okumidori. Cultivars are “cultivated varieties” identified for specific characteristics and propagated by cuttings to create a field of the same plant DNA. The okumidori cultivar is known for having a strong taste and aroma.
