Matsu™ Ceremonial Matcha 20g
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
- Refrigerate after opening for maximum flavour and potency
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
Best ceremonial grade matcha I've found in the UK!
I find the taste of Matsu to be mellow and just right, not too bitter and not too bland. It smells very fresh every time I open the tin! I have been buying the same matcha from here for the past two months and I have been very pleased with the consistent of the great quality.
I honestly never liked matcha in my life until I started drinking ceremonial grade matcha because it has less bitterness aftertaste. When I first tried Matsu I was AMAZED. It has a mellow roasted scent and tastes really fresh. Love this matcha so much I will buy it for my parents as their anniversary gift!
The quality of this Matsu tea is very high compared to other brands. Tea sold in larger (100g+) packs are generally imported into the UK from China or are so called "ceremonial grade" Japanese Matcha but they are much more olive in colour and have a somewhat bitter aftertaste-this comes from the tannin content in a lower quality tencha or from leaves picked later in the season. Matsu has a rich Umami flavour with no bitter after taste. The Matcha is a vibrant green, a sign of a high quality tea with high chlorophyll count. The price of this Matsu is also very reasonable, I bought this at their pop-up in London where they were offering 10% off. I look forward to trying the Misaki next.
This matcha really has a unique flavor (in a good way), which I really enjoy it.
It has a great scent and flavor when drinking it the traditional way. I have never tried making a latte with it yet, but I am not a big fan anyways.
I would definitely recommend Matsu to anyone. The quality itself is well worth the price I paid for.
