Uji Matcha No. 74 is Portal Tea’s iteration of one of the most well-known (and unique) Japanese teas in the world.
This fine powder produces an incredible vegetal, herbaceous flavor with unmistakably “green” notes similar to fresh grass or bamboo; it’s fresh, bright, and almost savory when served plain, offering a more subdued herbaceousness if sweetened.
Perhaps what makes Uji Matcha No. 74 such an incredibly diverse tea is its preparation; a slight change in your preparation can produce foamy, rich matcha lattes or thin, easy-drinking iced teas alike. For those who prefer dairy-free alternatives, the vegetal flavor of the matcha makes it a perfect mate for options like oat milk.
Ultimately, Uji Matcha No. 74 is a wildly diverse green tea with limitless options; it pairs perfectly with savory meals, acts as the ideal contemplative partner to creative afternoons, and offers an indulgently rich option for those who love mid-afternoon iced lattes.
Matcha is a flavor of its own; herbal, grassy, with just a hint of natural sweetness, it's a delightfully bright new world of taste simply waiting to be unlocked.
