Highest quality organic matcha from the youngest and finest leaves of the first harvest. Used for traditional tea ceremony, it possesses a rich mellow sweet taste and creamy texture and is distinguished by its vibrant jade green colour.
Moya Matcha Premium is obtained in the 1st harvest from tea plants that are specially shaded from direct sunlight. This results in higher chlorophyll and L-Theanine contents and a richer, greener color. Only the finest, most delicate fresh leaves are collected, dried and ground to powder.
Moya Matcha Premium is grown in the Uji region of Kyoto Prefecture, known for the cultivation of highest quality green tea for over 800 years. The Uji region is famous for its fertile soils and clean water. The green tea plants there have ideal conditions for growth thanks to hills providing good sunlight, frequent mists that protect delicate leaves from frost and high amount of rainfall. Moya Matcha is meticulously cultivated and harvested on small family-owned organic tea fields. It is then processed locally in Japan and dispatched in small batches to assure peak freshness for all our grades. This helps preserve all the qualities of the tea leaf and maintain high levels of minerals and antioxidants.
