With the trip to Japan but a distant memory, it's time to reminisce and share what wonderful experiences I had while there.

Very much a standout was the tea farm visit in Uji. Uji is a quaint town about 20 mins by train south of Kyoto (if you were travelling to Nara you would pass through it)

In Uji you can wander through a street called Byodoin Omotesando and literally smell the aroma of Matcha Green Tea in the air ahhh!

But more on that another time!

The main reason for visiting Uji was to meet the family behind the Tea Farm our Premium Matcha is sourced from and witness Ichibancha (or first harvest) that takes place in May each year.

Matcha Yu Culinary Matcha Review (By But First, Tea)

Here's another lovely review of our Culinary Matcha, this time from Sherstin from @butfirst_tea, an amazing tea community we absolutely love!

 She says

"Beautiful to drink but great to bake with as well"

"The packaging is eco-friendly and it's home compostable, the packaigng, the label, everything is packaging. Super eco-friendly and something to be honest is so rare, not a lot of tea companies are doing this".

 Sherstin, we totally love the zig zag motion of the tea whisk too, a great technique!

Thank you for the kind words and so happy you enjoyed it!
