GLORIOUS MOON (Geika) Matcha is a fabulous hand-picked matcha tea from Kyoto’s Uji Valley.
All the characteristics of brilliant, ceremonial-grade matcha tea powder are here: an anti-oxidant powerhouse with a vibrant green colour, richness of flavour and a satisfying finish.
Just like the Unkaku Matcha, the GLORIOUS MOON Matcha is shade-grown for extra flavour. This process lasts for approximately three weeks before harvest, and forces the plants to produce more chlorophyll and amino acids.

This was the first raw pu'er cake I ever purchased and was a great introduction to what a young raw pu'er is like. By flash steeping, this can last for over a dozen steeps. It has that classic bitterness that the Lincang region is known for, which I find quite enjoyable. After the first few flash-steeps, you'll begin to really notice the sweetness kicking in and a menthol sensation building in the throat. It's fun experiencing the tea changing as the session progresses. There are better young raw pu'er cakes out there but this one is solid, and the unusually small size keeps the price down enough to make it easier to try.
Thanks for the feedback, Cha Crusade! Great to know you're getting so many steeps out of The Mini.
This tea is perfect for vegans or those that crave a creamy warm texture to their teas. It's a perfect middle path for me because I generally don't enjoy green teas. It's like a perfect marriage between a green tea and a black tea. The flavours seem to intensify on a second or third infusion of the tea leaves.
We're very glad you enjoy the Jinxuan oolong, Misbah.
I recently bought this via special order.The earthy aroma and complexity of flavour is something I've never tasted before in a tea.Just magnificent.
It is indeed a wonderful tea. Thanks for the glowing review Konrad!
This sencha is fabulous. Such intensity and purity of flavour.One of the best I've tried
Tried this today at the Melbourne (first) Tea Festival and it was amazing! Smooth, sweet and natural with all its goodness. It was just mesmerizing watching the green tea master perform the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Returned multiple times for more! Definitely how green tea should be known to the general public. Thank you for the awesome experience!
Thank you for the feedback! We're looking forward to sharing this amazing tea again in the near future.
