WHAT IS THIS “RING” AROUND THE NECK OF MY BOTTLE?
Products made with 100% Yuzu juice like ours will commonly have natural oils floating atop the bottle.
IS IT SAFE TO CONSUME?
It is absolutely safe to consume and is an all-natural part of Moshi. Not only is the Yuzu Halo a sign that your yuzu drink is made with real yuzu juice, but it’s also very easy to disperse. Just give it a light swirl to mix.
MATCHA vs. GREEN TEA?
Although Matcha tea and Green Tea come from the same plant, they are grown and processed differently. During the final stages before harvest, matcha is grown away from the sun which increases chlorophyll levels and turns the color of the leaves darker. Matcha leaves are then removed from the stems and ground into a fine powder. As a result of this process, matcha has a richer, more intense flavor than green tea.
WHY UJI MATCHA?
Uji Matcha refers to where the Matcha is grown; in this case Uji, Kyoto, Japan. Of all the matcha grown in Japan, Uji Matcha is arguably considered one of the highest quality producing regions. In the case of Moshi Matcha; our team utilized countless blind taste tests to determine that Uji Matcha was the best fit to represent Moshi.
