Product specificity 商品説明

Origin of the name "Jo no mai"

“Jo no mai” (Noh Dance Prelude) is a masterpiece of Shoen UEMURA, a Japanese-style painter, famous for her beautiful women portraits. She was born the second daughter of a tea leaf merchant owning a shop named “Chikiriya” in Kyoto. 

In September 2012, we received a trademark registration approval from the Japan Patent Office for this matcha. (Business application number: 2012-042362).

Finely stone ground matcha

Tencha is the name for the tea leaves used to make matcha. Tencha leaves that have been covered for about 30 days are steamed and then dried without kneading. The final step to make matcha is to carefully grind the tencha leaves with a stone. The resulting product is known as matcha.

By grinding the tea leaves with a millstone the grains become finer. As a result, we get a high-quality matcha with a pleasant and mellow taste and easy to foam.

The process takes a very long time as well. Usually, it takes one hour to grind 40g of matcha.
