Matsu™ Ceremonial Matcha 20g
£18.00 GBP £15.00 GBP
Intense with a Mellow Roasted Flavour
Our signature ceremonial-grade matcha is artisan roasted to produce a rich, creamy body and smooth mouthfeel not unlike a perfectly brewed espresso
Boasting the deepest shade of green reminiscent of Japanese pine trees, Matsu™ is characterised by its captivating roasted aromas brought to the fore by our artisanal roasting technique handed down through generations of matcha sommeliers. The result is a deeply rich and complex symphony of flavours, with notes of 'umami' and savoury-sweet undertones that round out the intensity of the roast, culminating in an exquisite blend with a full body and long, creamy finish.

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

I drink quite a bit of tea and like to think of myself as someone who knows what matcha should taste like. What you get here is clean tasting, extremely flexible, and organic matcha. The size of the package is perfect; making sure that you savor every bit of it.
One of the great things about matcha however is that you need only a blender bottle and ice and you have a perfect iced matcha for the Iraq heat. Let me tell you, nothing like the grassy, subtly sweet taste to get your morning started right. Worked too hard and woke up too early? Matcha. Exercise? Matcha. Conducting a presentation with less than enthused people? Hasn't happened yet, but if it happened I can tell you that I would have a pitcher filled with this matcha and engage them with the calm energy of the vegan-friendly, public-transportation-riding, non-binary person I am.
This is by far my fav Matcha the taste is subtle and very soft not at all bitter lil sweet in taste
Matsu™ Ceremonial Matcha 20g
I used to drink a lot of coffee before work, which could upset my stomach from times to times. This is troubling for me because I need to start my morning with a kick of caffeine. I was introduced to matcha a couple years ago but did not like the taste, but I learned to know that the matcha I tried was not ceremonial grade (and was meant for cooking).
This matcha tastes incredibly good! There is no apparent distasteful bitterness (which I found to be the case for all other matcha that I’ve tried). I understand that some people love to make matcha latte or smoothie, but for me I only drink it with just water. The double wall glass that comes with the kit is a perfect portion for that. With regards to the taste, I would describe it as smooth, calm, and umami flavor.
FOR those who want to switch to matcha from coffee, I would recommend that you DO IT!! You get the same energy in the morning after drinking matcha. But the energy (I don’t really know how to describe it) makes you feel calm and happy – really! It makes me feel happy LOL I don’t know why.
Definitely give it a try
