Topic: Marukyu Koyamaen -- Matcha favored by heads of tea schools
I just bought 3 kinds of Matcha from Marukyu Koyamaen. I decided to buy one from the "Matcha favored by heads of tea schools" category for no particular reason. I was wondering if anyone had any insight as to how this website has so many different sorts of Matcha.
There are 26 individual Matchas sold under the "favored by heads of tea schools" catgory sorted as to the particular school which favored each.
Then there are 10 principle Matchas (I assume these names are used year after year.)
And 6 seasonal Matchas.
I guess Marukyu Koyamaen are a pretty big company, but how do they manage to have so many different types of Matchas?
This may be a stupid question as I don't know much about Japanese tea in general, but does anyone have any insight?
