There are two areas in Japan that have become synonymous with tea and they are both on the island of Honshu: Uji near Kyoto, and pretty much everywhere in Shizuoka Prefecture under Mount Fuji. And while most tea cultivators are still following traditional methods of producing Japan's trademark beverage, there are also those who approach the matter from a 21st-century perspective using organic methods and trying to be as environmentally friendly as possible. One of these cultivators is Nodoka and the Nodoka Green Tea Powder Assortment is the perfect sampler of their efforts.
In the Nodoka Green Tea Powder Assortment, you get a container made of recycled paper, inside which you find 20 g (0.7 oz) each of the best Nodoka's plantations have to offer in five different varieties: the standard three types of green tea – sencha, genmaicha (green tea mixed with roasted popped brown rice) and hojicha (roasted green tea) – and also matcha, the high-quality tea used in the tea ceremony, and a special premium matcha. All in 2 g (0.07 oz) sticks that you can just dissolve in water and enjoy!
