From Rare Tea Company

A top-grade organic matcha loose leaf tea, sourced from Wakohen garden, in Kagoshima Prefecture.

Crafted from just the tender first flush of the Saemidori cultivar.

Made from precious Tencha – shade-grown green tea, the leaf is de-veined and de-stemmed and ground using traditional ceramic stones to a fine powder. This meticulous crafting results in a tea of great depth and intensity.

This is ceremonial grade matcha for whisking; it can also be enjoyed as an iced tea or added to cold-pressed juice and smoothies. We recommend whisking to a smooth paste with a little cold water first and then diluting for an iced tea or to add to your juice. Cold extraction takes about 1 hour, use 4-5g per litre of cold water.

Tasting Notes
Smooth and creamy, with a natural sweetness and rich umami notes.

Art is subjective when it comes to color, matcha is not. While someone could argue that matcha color doesn’t matter. I disagree. It can be the first sign of whether matcha is still good, how long it was shaded, if it was stored properly, etc. The color of this matcha leaves much to be desired. Is that a pun? Wa ha. It is between a green olive and moss green. Which in matcha is not something really desirable unless you are cooking with it. The mouthfeel is silky with a bit of silt. The flavor is better than culinary but doesn’t have the complexity of a ceremonial grade in my opinion. There is a slight creaminess mixed in with vegetal notes. I would rate this in the middle, better for lattes but still fine for a stand-alone session. On that note, mixed with creamy oat milk it is quite delicious.

Even in the product photo, the color doesn’t look that great. Odd.

So true. I was really hoping that it was just a bad pic when I ordered it. Henrietta does great tea but needs to rethink the matcha I think
