Place 1/2 tsp (approx. 2 bamboo scoops) of matcha (~1g) in matcha bowl, then wet with 15ml (0.5fl oz) of 70ºC/160ºF water. Thoroughly knead mixture using bamboo whisk until smooth paste forms. Add 70ml (2.4fl oz) of remaining water and mix until consistent.
Upon sipping, roll the liquid around the palate to appreciate the full flavour anatomy of the tea.
- Store in a cool dry place, away from moisture, sunlight, and odours
- Refrigerate after opening for maximum flavour and potency
I was impressed with matsu save for the color, so my expectations for this one are definitely higher. Gorgeous color! Just what I was hoping. That luscious emerald/jade green. Slightly chocolatey aroma. Very soft to the touch. Likewise with the liquid, a serene green appearance. As I poured in more water a unique marine aroma drifted up to my nose. Wish I could explain it but it was gone so quickly. Silky mouth feel. That slightly marine flavor came back again; it's almost fishy in flavor but it comes and goes so quickly. Do not worry though as strange as it is I've only had the sensation a few times in the many sips I've taken. Maybe it's me? Regardless, if you like umami this has a wonderful umami undertone to it. Slightly grassy, no astringency.
The flavour, the colour and the smell were so mesmerising and on point that I ordered another one and received it yesterday. Need I say more?
Love this matcha
Misaki is making my mornings better.
