Inari Matcha

Spring harvest 2021.

In appearance: bright green powder of the smallest fraction. The aroma is intensive, grassy with a hint of seaweed.

The bouquet of the ready-made tea is bright, with hints of seaweed and freshly cut grass. The aroma is intense, sharp and fresh. The taste is full-bodied and viscous, with a silky texture and a barely perceptible grassy bitterness that turns into a long, juicy aftertaste.

How to prepare the matcha. Put 2g (2 chashaku scoop) matcha powder into a tea bowl. Pour 30 ml of hot water (80℃) over the powder and whisk it with a chasen. When all the small lumps are mixed, add 40-60 ml of water more, continuing to whisk until high foam forms. After the matcha is done, drink it immediately, because as it cools down it gets bitter.

A vigorous tea with a smooth texture, rich in fresh leaf-green flavour. Well suited for both strong koicha and light usucha. A brilliant choice for those who prefer tea with distinct but not pushy flavor.
