Ground from shade-cultivated tea leaves, matcha is rich in theanine-an amino acid responsible for matcha's full-bodied mellow sweetness. In Japan, there is a special name for this taste: umami. Generally, the higher the grade, the richer the umami taste.

Characterized by its rich aroma, full-bodied mellow sweetness, and vivid green color, matcha is a favorite among tea lovers in Japan. Invigorating and full of nutrients, matcha is the perfect drink to rejuvenate your mind and body. It tastes best when served with sweets.

Akebono-no-shiro has a mild taste, with just the right amount of astringency. With its light taste and pleasant aftertaste that fades quickly. It's best prepared as the thinner usucha, and also a good choice for people trying matcha for the first time. If you would like to prepare your matcha as the thicker koicha, we recommend Kan-no-shiro and higher grades.

- This matcha was named by Hounsai Sosho XV, the great master of the Ura-Senke family of tea masters.
- This grade of matcha is the same as that used for Musubi-no-shiro, which was named by the Omote-Senke family of tea masters.
