Lalani & Co Matcha Gold is grown on organic family run gardens in Japan, from producers we know. This matcha is a pure spring season tea. The highest quality green tea in Japan comes from the spring season. The tea plants are covered like you see in the picture for 21 days to increase the L-theanine amino acid in the leaf (responsible for matcha’s mood lift effect).
Organic growing is very important for matcha, so your matcha is free from harmful pesticides.
High quality matcha should be bright, vibrant and rich in colour. The powder should be so finely milled that it wafts from the jar like smoke.
The quality is also visible from the vibrant green colour of the finished matcha, and the depth of aroma.
Lalani & Co Matcha Gold whisks into a thick froth with ease. On the palate, you can taste the balanced flavour, the hints of cocoa butteriness and nuttiness of a premium matcha, and the thick mouth-feel that comes from traditional stone milling.
