Description

Rei 玲 in Japanese means "piercing beauty" or alternatively refers to the pure reverberating sound of metal striking a bell as often heard in Buddhist ceremonies. This ceremonial grade matcha from Uejima Tea Farm evokes the purity and beauty of this sound. A matcha that is recommended for usucha (in comparison to koicha, the thick matcha), this is a popular floral and smooth matcha from tea master Uejima-san in Wazuka, Kyoto Prefecture. Made with the samidori tea cultivar,  this cultivar is well known for making an excellent matcha, tencha, and gyokuro.
