Shiro no Kotobuki has a rich, creamy mouthfeel and a deep, lasting umami flavor. It is a smooth, full-bodied matcha with a powerful energy that both uplifts and brings focus at the same time.
Matcha Shiro no Kotobuki is a prized ceremonial grade matcha from the heart of Kyoto Prefecture. Shiro no Kotobuki is a highly respectful name honoring the noble pride of Kyoto tea culture and history. Shiro literally means “castle,” yet here it alludes to the placename Yamashiro no Kuni, a region in southern Kyoto. The imperial court ruled in Yamashiro no Kuni during the Muromachi period, when tea culture flourished throughout Japan. Kotobuki means “celebrated” or “noble.” This matcha is STONE-MILLED!
