Midori is now replaced by Mori Ceremonial Uji Matcha as we find Mori is better in quality compared to Midori.
Midori is ceremonial grade matcha that produce from first flush, young tea leaf that has the high amount of L-theanine. Midori has high amount of umami sweetness and low bitterness.
Midori Ceremonial matcha is suitable for making usucha (thin tea) as in Japanese Tea Ceremony. When used to make matcha sweet drinks, only little or no sugar is required, you don't have to use sugar to balance the bitterness because it has low bitterness.
Midori is produced from Tencha grown in Uji. Uji produce the best matcha in the world, it has ideal weather, elevation and fertile soil for matcha cultivation.

This matcha has milder taste, does it mean low grade?
Many customers has misconception that strong bitterness = good matcha, actually it's the other way round. High grade matcha has low bitterness and high umami sweetness. Therefore high grade taste milder if made into dessert or sweet drink. High grade matcha is meant for making healthy matcha tea.
