Organic Matcha-iri Shiraore

Through our friends from Amayama Organic Life we met the boutique producer Nikawa Seicha from Ukiha in Fukuoka. Higuchi, the founding family which has been producing tea for three generations, completely committed themselves to organic farming.

This, after the health of the parents worsened and this was attributed to the use of pesticide. Since then the Higuchi family grows in the mountains of Ukiha a wide selection of tea cultivars purely organic. The variation of the cultivars prevents monoculture and thus an excessive spread of parasites. Also the harvest period extends notable because the different cultivars sprout at different times.

In addition to organic farming, we especially like the fact that various tea cultivars are available. Not that blends are a bd thing, especially if crafted by a experienced tea master, but we think it’s quiet interesting to experience the peculiarities of the individual tea cultivars.

Organic Matcha-iri Shiraore is made of Yabukita first flush tea leaves and is enriched with organic Matcha. Shiraore is in other parts of Japan also known as Karigane or Kukicha and is a usually a cheap alternative. However, this Shiraore is made of stem of our Toku Jo Sencha and is enhanced with Matcha.
