Our White Dragon Matcha is very close to my heart. Scott (the owner and founder of Sun Potion) and I sourced this particular Matcha on a trip to Japan in Spring 2016. We went on the trip for two reasons - to attend a wedding and to find the best matcha in the world.
During the trip we connected with the regenerative agriculture community around Kyoto to begin the sourcing process. We developed a relationship with the local farms and matcha purveyors and tasted dozens of varietals - this was the one we loved the most. Naturally... it was also the most expensive (sigh). The reason being, the amount of care that goes into the whole process. The farm we source from is nestled in the forests in Nara - the matcha is grown in harmony with its surrounding environment - the soil is interfered with as little as possible to maintain its inherent properties and mineral profile. The youngest leaf buds are harvested tenderly - by hand - the overall result being a much smaller, time-consuming harvest where the transmission of the soil and forest can be experienced in the tea.
The time when we were sourcing the matcha was also a significant personal and spiritual moment for us. One day, we went on a pilgrimage of sorts to a mountain shrine called "God Dragon" with our newlywed friends. We hiked for several hours until we reached the temple at the summit... there were these gorgeous large, white and gold butterflies that fluttered around us the climb.... it was a sublimely magical, multidimensional journey. In my imagination, the butterflies were really these white and gold dragons... guiding us to the shrine. Hence the name "White Dragon Matcha".
