Yugen, translated "Transcendent Grace and Subtlety" is the best mid-grade usucha matchas that we offer. The word Yugen is used to suggest that which is about this world, but beyond words to describe. The Japanese playwright Zeami Motokiyo explained Yugen with the following phrases: "To watch the sun sink behind a flower clad hill. To wander on in a huge forest without thought of return. And, subtle shadows of bamboo on bamboo." Like this name suggests, matcha has a deep and rich taste that is not easily described through words, but must be experienced firsthand.
