Kaze is our another grade of culinary Matcha. For those who are looking for lower grade culinary matcha, but wish to have some good matcha umami, this may be what you need.
Similar to our Kazumi and Meiko, Kaze Uji Matcha is also from Uji, Kyoto. Kaze has higher umami than Kazumi, but lower than Meiko. In other words, Kaze has richer matcha flavor than Kazumi, but less than Meiko. Unlike other kitchen grade matcha in the market which has only bitterness taste, Kaze matcha has some mellow umami taste.
