"Takamine" roughly translates to "pinnacle." That is, the tencha for this Okumidori matcha was graded by the grower to be of particularly high quality. The farmer for this tencha also produces our Asahi and Somada Okumidori. He is Uji's foremost Biodynamic/natural farmer, and rapidly making a name for himself as a producer of the finest tencha available.

The Tencha for this tea comes from the same farm in Somada as our Somada Okumidori. The only difference is that the plot of land from which this batch was harvested lies at a steeper incline than the rest of the farm. This small environmental change makes a big difference in flavor. The roots of the tea bushes penetrate the topsoil more effectively, drawing up more nutrients from deeper layers of the earth. 

The Takamine Okumidori is by far the smoothest, creamiest version of this cultivar we've come across, with an exceptionally lingering mouth-watering quality.
