Aoyama matcha powder from Bonsai Cha has been expertly crafted by our award-winning
tea master, who has carefully hand-selected first-harvest leaves for this stunning matcha powder. Aoyama is made from the Okumidori cultivar which is characterized by a vivid, bright green colour and is considered a rare cultivar. Okumidori tends to be favoured for higher quality matcha powders due to its high amino acid and chlorophyll content which enhances umami flavour. This cultivar
typically offers a refreshing fragrance that is sweet and buttery, similar to baked biscuits or wafers, along with notes of chocolate and grass. On the palate, it is smooth, round and mellow with low astringency.
