Seiun - 40g

(85)
$45

Seiun places firmly in our rich category. Its lingering finish and full umami character make it a wise choice for fans of a reflective, satisfying matcha teatime.

Shelf lifeConsume quickly
The best before date is 180 days from when it is freshly packaged in Japan. For the best experience, consume within around one month of opening.
Serving sizeUsucha: 2 g (1 tsp.)
Koicha: 4 g (2 tsp.)
Size 2.1" × 2.1" × 2.6"
Net weight1.4 oz (40 g)

We recommend Seiun for the matcha fan looking for a tea with a full (but not overwhelming) character. With a hearty umami and sweet taste, its aftertaste is long and elegant. We recommended trying this matcha as koicha to experience the full depth and nuances of its character. As usucha, Seiun is deeply satisfying, a standby at teatime. For matcha lattes, we usually recommend a medium-to-light category matcha with more astringency, but some will choose Seiun for its bright color and its umami-rich profile.
