Unkaku, tranlated "Cranes Flying, White Clouds" is our entry grade ceremonial koicha matcha. Cranes are a sacred animal in Japan. Cranes represent strength, long life, good luck, and fidelity. Drinking Unkaku will give you strength like a crane flying high and peacefully through the sky. As a koicha matcha, Unkaku exceeds the quality of all usucha matchas and best for making “thick tea”.
