Tsuyuhikari green tea powder was developed as a convenient way to drink the entire tea leaf. High quality green tea leaves are ground into a fine powder using a stone mill making it very similar to matcha tea powder production.
Simply mix a teaspoon of the powder with hot water and a delicious, silky smooth cup of tea is ready!
Recommended ratio: 1 gram of powder vs 100 ml of water.
Create your original drink or use for baking or cooking
The less astringent taste of the Tsuyuhikari powder goes well with milk and can be served like black tea. Mix with your favorite alcohol to create an original cocktail, or used it for baking green tea flavored cookie or cake!
Ensuring safety and delicious taste
Taking over 15 years, the soil in which the tea is grown has been purified by mixing natural clay mineral, reducing the nitrate nitrogen and leaving the umami savoriness of the green tea. The farmer uses a minimal amount of pesticide applied months before harvest.
Selected Shizuoka-grown cultivar tea leaves
The tsuyuhikari cultivar is a new cultivar derived from the cultivar 'asatsuyu', known as 'natural gyokuro', as its paternal cultivar. Unlike the cultivar 'yabukita' which mAmes up 90% of the Shizuoka green tea, 'tsuyuhikari' has a very delicate taste.
Traditional tea cultivation and latest tea processing technique
Tea is grown under the traditional cultivation method, which is then made into fine powder using the new processing technique. To ensure that the tea has a silky rather than grainy texture, tea leaves are slowly ground in a special mill.
