The Mokuren, named for a type of magnolia blossom, is produced by the Yamaguchi family; decorated producers of our most popular matcha to date. Hailing from Hoshino Village in Yame, a region highly regarded for its production of shaded teas, the Mokuren grows in perfect climate conditions. Shade, elevation, soil quality and water purity contribute to a tasting experience in the cupped tea that is liquid sunshine. This tea is handpicked and stonemill ground. The whisked tea touts the characteristic savory and umami depth of Yame.
