Tea leaves selection & more

Nov 23, 2019

The standard for ZENJIRO to choose green tea leaves and matcha is a little different from other tea masters in Japan.

The purpose of green tea is to extract and enjoy the components, but when ZENJIRO chooses tea leaves, he consider other factors. ZENJIRO thinks that aroma and flavor determine the character of tea and the taste determines quality.

As ZENJIRO’s view as important, the aroma emphasizes the type of scent rather than the strength of the flavor. It is the individuality caused by organic compounds and is determined by the terroir including the soil.
