Marukyu Koyamaen Isuzu Ceremonial Matcha 40g

Sold out


Classical thin tea (usucha) with the name of Ise Shrine’s river called ‘fifty bells’
This is a bolder matcha than the Aoarashi which comes before it in the portfolio line-up, boasting a far more decisive character, flavors steeped in sharp, tart amino acids. It is a good idea to also try preparing it using lower temperature water (70 °C), as this will significantly take the edge off its tartness besides greatly softening its flavor. Prepared with hotter or less hot water this matcha will impress with a tea with highly distinctive flavors.
How to prepare

STEP 1) Put 2g (0.4 US tsp, 1 teaspoon or 2 chashaku scoop) matcha powder into a suitable tea bowl.
STEP 2) Pour 70 ml (2.4 fl oz) 80℃ (176°F) water over the matcha powder.
STEP 3) Whisk with a chasen (tea whisk) until foamy.

❖ Before Step 1, Warm your tea bowl. (Optional) Pour hot water in it, then discard all the water and wipe the bowl dry with a cloth. During whisking a cold tea bowl might cool the water down too quickly, which could turn the matcha bitter.
❖ Sift your matcha powder. (Strongly recommended) Matcha clots easily in hot water. To prevent this, sift the powder through a fine strainer.
❖ When your matcha is ready, drink it immediately, because as it cools down it might turn bitter. (Recommended)
❖ Matcha is best fresh. Consume it within a month after opening. (Strongly recommended)

❖ Try iced matcha: pour the finished matcha over ice.
