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.

Our guide to making a great cup
Making matcha is easy with a few simple steps.
Beautiful deep green color. Sifts super easy for a smooth finish with very deep flavor. Easily one of my favorite matchas ever!
Love this product! I’m a huge matcha drinker and this brand offers excellent quality with a smooth, delicate taste and vibrant color. I am very picky and was pleasantly surprised!
Great presentation and packeting, the container are perfect for keeping the matcha powder fresh and easy to access with my mambo spoon. But the greatest thing about Midori Matcha is that the taste is amazing! I tried both Emerald Class and Ceremonial and had the best experience every time I drink them. Highly recommend from a daily Matcha drinker.
The matcha is good quality and very smooth. Ceremonial is the way to go!
