TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

This powdered tea comes from Kagoshima Prefecture in Japan, the second largest tea-producing prefecture in the country. It has a subtropical climate, abundant rainfall, fertile soil, and flat agricultural area. All of these are beneficial for the production of tea. Aside from that, Kagoshima soil is also rich due to the shirasu, or white volcanic ash, from nearby Mt. Sakurajima, seeping the soil in minerals.

Kagoshima tea is aromatic, bright and light on the nose. On the palate, it is light and refreshing, with subtle but complex flavors, and notes of bitterness that are characteristic of green tea.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

Ikeda Seicha Kagoshima Green Tea Powder is prepared a little differently to loose leaf tea or tea bags. Sift the powdered tea into your favorite cup or mug to make sure there are no lumps. Pour a small amount of hot water, and mix it up to dissolve the powder. Pour more water, and enjoy.

MASTER OF MATCHA

Ikeda Seicha is a company that takes tea very seriously. Founded in 1945 by Kenta Ikeda’s grandfather in Kagoshima, Japan, it has cemented its role as a name in Japanese tea, particularly matcha. This is thanks, in most part, to Kenta Ikeda himself, who was born in his family’s tea shop and from the very beginning, developed a love and passion for the art of tea making that he will bring his whole life.

Kenta Ikeda became a certified 10th level Chashi, or tea master, in 2014. It’s a distinction so prestigious that in the 65 years since the certification began, only 13 other people in the entire world have been given it. A Master Tea Maker is able to source tea leaves from different places, and is able to attest these leaves according to their properties and ascertain how best to use them. This is the best indicator of Ikeda Seicha’s superior place in the world of tea.

Store your tea in odor-free, airtight containers. Keep them in a dry, dark place to avoid exposure to heat, excessive light, and humidity. Properly stored, teas will retain full potency and flavor for 18 to 24 months.
