Competition Grade Tasting Flight of 3 - OMAKASE
LIMITED TIME & QUANTITY ONLY
Calling all matcha connoisseurs!
Exclusive to Whisk Premium Matcha, you can now experience 3 different kinds of competition grade matcha and host a fine matcha tasting for yourself. This is a collection of the finest Japanese matcha on the market.
In addition to our top 2 grades of Organic Competition grade matcha, KURI & KIKYO, we're adding a new OMAKASE matcha which is equivalent to the value and quality of UME 20g. The name of this mysterious matcha won't be disclosed until it arrives to your home. We usually select a specialty and seasonal matcha that has contrasting flavour profiles to KURI & KIKYO, yet is enjoyable as an Usucha (thin tea).
The 3rd matcha will change every month, so you won't have exactly the same one.
NOTE: For competition grade matcha, it's crucial to sift prior to whisking. Get your professional matcha sifter here.

What is Competition Grade matcha?
The national tea competition is hosted annually for the purposes of improving the cultivation standards and quality of tea (especially green tea). Over 1000 high quality teas are submitted for review and the owner of the tea farms will present, participate and receive the awards of Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries 農林水産大臣賞. This is the highest award and achievement one can receive in the agricultural industry.
Over 20 professional judges & tea masters will taste and evaluate all teas using the same brewing methods (volume, quantity & temperature control). Procedures and criteria are clearly standardized and monitored throughout the evaluation. The judges will take notes and put down the value of each tea, and the most valued tea will range the 1st place.
