Marukyu Koyamen have been producing the highest quality green teas since the 1600s and have a reputation for excellence in teas that has to be savoured to be believed! Chigi No Shiro, tranlated "A Thousand Trees", is one of our mid-grade usucha matchas. The name, "A Thousand Trees", is a reference to the ceremonial rebuilding of the Ise Shrine every 20 years. A vibrant, grassy, and very soft-flavored tea with a touch of tartness. No bitter or sweet notes, but much velvety creaminess characterizes this even-keeled matcha, which is also excellent value for money. This tea exudes harmony, tranquility, peace.
