About the Uji Barista Matcha: The Uji Barista (バリスタ) Matcha redefines traditional standards of Barista-grade matcha, particularly in culinary applications. Uniquely ground using authentic Japanese stone mills, it contrasts the common industrial ball mill method used for most culinary matchas. This matcha originates genuinely from Shirakawa, Uji, Japan, challenging the prevalent practice where “Uji” labeled matcha often comes from nearby areas like Wazuka. It employs a superior tana shading structure instead of the typical direct Jikagise method, resulting in a rich, savory flavor enhanced by an extended 40-day shading process. Surpassing many ceremonial-grade matchas in quality, it offers an exceptional yet affordable option for various culinary uses, including mixed drinks and traditional Matcha Usucha.
