Description

Yougen literally means subtle grace, hidden beauty, elegant simplicity. It is often used to describe the nature of Noh plays, the theater of Japan’s elite for centuries.
Our Yougen Matcha comes in a sealed foil bag inside a storage can with Japanese washi paper, and wrapped in a gold-colored gift box.
The production of matcha begins always with tea leaves. After shaded for up to 4 weeks the leaves intended for matcha are steamed and dried without rolling. After removing leaf stems and veins, the result is called Tencha. Does leaves are then grounded in stone mills to a fine matcha green tea powder.
Matcha is served at a traditional tea ceremony called Chado. There are two main ways of preparing matcha at tea ceremony. One is Usucha (thin tea), the other is Koicha (thick tea). Thin tea is served to each guest in an individual bowl, while one bowl of thick tea is shared among several guests. This style of sharing a bowl of koicha first appeared in historical documents in 1586, and is a method considered to have been invented by the Chado master, Sen no Riky?«.
