Hibari Matcha | 雲雀


Hibari is a superlative matcha created of shincha (first flush) tencha from the southern region of Uji, Kyoto. This usucha (thin tea) is smooth and medium bodied, with a wonderfully grounding and steady energetic presence. Fresh, delicate notes of early spring grass spill forth from this blend of Samidori, Yabukita and Ujihikari cultivars. Hibari translates to "the skylark that sings in spring".

Hibari Matcha is part of the new Bellocq Matcha collection. We are honored to be working with one of the most revered matcha producers in Japan who have been cultivating and processing exquisite matcha since the 16th century. Enjoyed by Emperors, their rare and exceptional teas may now be enjoyed by our discerning clientele.

To Prepare:

Bring filtered or spring water to 160ºF. Put 1-2 tsp of matcha in a sifter; gently sift powdered tea into a matcha bowl. Add a few tablespoons of water and whisk until smooth. Add the remaining 5 ounces of water and whisk, in an M or Z motion, until fully incorporated and a fine froth is achieved. 

 Packaging: Prepared in a sealed 30g bag. To maintain freshness, we recommend storing matcha in the refrigerator.

Origin: Uji, Kyoto, Japan, 2022
