Yunomi Tea

Also known as a latte grade or cafe grade, this matcha is meant for use in making lattes, chocolates, ice cream, matcha latte, and baked goods such as cakes, frosting, cookies, etc. What it lacks in color and aroma, it makes up in a flavor balanced in umami and astringency, combined with a smooth texture. (Yes you can drink it straight as a matcha too, but it’s not nearly as good straight as ceremonial grade options)
