Matcha Gold is a solid high quality Matcha, but doesn’t stand out from the crowd of organically cultivated Matcha green teas.

drank Awaraku by Marukyu-Koyamaen
25 tasting notes

Marukyu Koyama-en is one of my favorite brands. I especially love their cold brew Matcha powder, which is freeze-dried in the preparation process. You just have to add cold water, whisk and enjoy a refreshing bowl of Matcha.

This Matcha is highly aromatic in its scent especially during the whisking process.
Its taste profile is one of the crisp and vegetal Matcha teas with an alga-maritime flavor, a full body and persistent, with an astringent and rich finish.

A yellowish green liquor with roasty nuances of toasted rice, neither too strong, nor too mild, perfectly matches the vegetal and slight sweet taste of the green tea base.

I like Hojicha best when it does not have a dominant charcoal-tobacco taste. Unfortunately this one is very heavenly roasted.
It has taken some trying for me to like this dark roasted Hojicha.

Flavors: Toasty, Tobacco

Matcha Silver makes a good everyday Matcha with a mild body and a long vegetal finish.
There wasn’t any astringency and bitterness but some crispy notes were here and there.
The texture was silky and smooth.

An organic blend of spring and summer harvest from Kagoshima and Kyoto.
This Sencha is high aromatic in its scent and fills the air with a complex aroma of umami and amami.
The liquor is a cloudy green with yellowish nuances in the cup.
Up to 5 infusions were possible, however, the flavor began already to fade with the 4th infusion.
The flavor was full-bodied and complex with a good balance of sweetness and umami.
The finish was vegetal with a refreshing astringency that gains more intensity in the following infusions.

This tea has a dominant charcoal taste that reminds me of tobacco.
One session with this tea was definitely enough for me.
The smoky flavor wasn’t really my liking.

Bio

My journey through the world of Japanese teas started after discovering Matcha. That was nearly eight years ago. And during this time Matcha became my favorite green tea.
The variations of ceremonial Matcha are large. It ranges from entry level to higher grades, from standard range to seasonal offered Matcha and from non-organic to organic Matcha.
