Our Hagi Paradise blend has a wonderful natural sweetness and full-bodied flavor profile. The umami is pronounced and yields a nutty flavor that lingers on the palate long after the last mouthful. With a buttery smooth finish, this is an extraordinary Japanese matcha tea without any bitterness that can be enjoyed as usucha ("thin" matcha) or koicha ("thick" matcha).
A blended tea is one in which various batches of tea have been mixed together in certain proportions to produce a particular flavor profile. Hagi Paradise combines Samidori, Gokou and Asahi green tea varieties from Uji in the Kyoto Prefecture and Nishio in the Aichi Prefecture. Each of these varieties is specifically designed for growing in the shade and has a light, natural sweetness. Samidori gives the blend its depth and when combined with Asahi produces a luscious, creamy texture.
Hagi Paradise is a delicious blend of matcha that deserves to be savored often.
