I bought the Organic Matcha Kaoru Supreme, 22.95 for 30 grams. Believe it or not, I have been drinking Sencha for a while now, but this is my FIRST matcha! I am kind of excited
Maybe next time I will try one of their pricier varieties, like the Uji Matcha "Kiri no Mori," but $60 for 30 grams of tea?? That is like $1000 a pound! I think the priciest tea I have ever bought was $40 an ounce... $640 a pound... So I guess it is not a huge leap.
Here is the Kaoru description:
"Kaoru means "fragrant" in Japanese. We carry two grades of organic matcha, and although this is the second of of the two, the quality is nonetheless excellent. From Shimoyama, located in Japan's Aichi prefecture, this tea is grown at an elevation of 640-660 meters. Grown with only natural organic fertilizers and no agricultural chemicals, it adheres to Japan's JONA (Japan Organic & Natural Foods Association) certification requirements, and also carries the USDA & European IMO seals (certificates on file.) Try some today! Net weight 30gm, this product makes approximately 24 servings per can."
