What Makes Tenryū Okumidori Matcha Special?
About This Matcha
One of our most vibrant and vivid Organic Matchas comes from the Okumidori cultivar! Sourced with the help of a renowned tea master and harvested by local farmers on the picturesque fields above the Tenryū Rivers, you can truly taste that this Matcha is of the highest quality. This tea is characterized by its ability to make a silky, frothy brew with pronounced sweet notes.
Flavor Notes: Vivid and bright. Bursts of sweet notes, hints of vanilla, creamy when whisked, brothy, and savory when thick.
Longer shading, better tea
This particular (Okumidori) plant is carefully shaded for 30 days, 40% longer than average, to produce an abundance of chlorophyll and phytonutrients. Not only does it contribute to its unique, delicious taste, but it also plays a crucial role in improving our overall health and well being.
The lack of sunlight during the process forces the plant to grow taller and produce high levels of chlorophyll, polyphenols, catechins, and L-theanine, a type of amino acid. High concentrations of these antioxidants and nutrients have shown to help with:
Mental clarity, immune system, inflammation, weight management, and cholesterol.
Furthermore, the shaded environment protects the tea leaves from damage by UV rays, pests, and diseases which helps to preserve their nutrients, resulting in a higher quality product.
Nestled away from pollution, our Okumidori Matcha plants are meticulously cultivated in the mineral-rich soils, natural shade of fog, and higher altitudes of the mountains in the Tatsuyama district to give them a naturally clear, crisp taste with a distinctive aroma.
Clean and Pure
We don't use additives or preservatives, and we routinely conduct heavy metals, radioactive particles, and pesticide testing in addition to strict quality control measures to keep our teas healthy.

Our guide to making a great cup
Making matcha is easy with a few simple steps.
Wonderful smooth tasting Matcha!!!
I drink Emerald Class every morning but save ceremonial teas for weekends and special occasions when I have time to really relax and appreciate the flavor. Tenryu Origin Ceremonial Matcha is my new "special occasion" matcha!
Thank you for the best - Midori is the best matcha I have ever found. It is always shipped nicely and arrives fresh. The tin containers are great to reuse.
I cannot drink "coffee shop" matcha, because my standards have been set high!
Great communication & customer service as well.
Well folks I have made a previous review and that was suppose to be for this New Matcha but the flavor is still rich and even more divine the the regular ceremonial. I have just made a second order for the new Tenryū Origins Okumidor truly is unique that is why I have not even finished the first tin and I already wanted to order some more. Yes it is that good! Peace
We are pleased with the vibrant color and flavor of this high quality matcha. We have enjoyed the ceremonial gold class for years. By comparison, this grade of matcha is slightly more vibrant in color than the gold class, and you will notice the flavor is brighter and sweeter.
