drank Tancho-no-mukashi by Ippodo
25 tasting notes

Tancho-no-mukashi is an aromatic Matcha with great color and texture. Easy to sift and easy to foam up. This Matcha is according to Ippodo suitable for both Usucha and Koicha.
Prepared as Usucha it has a more one dimensional taste which nonetheless results in a harmonious overall taste.
Prepared as Koicha the taste had slightly vegetal bitter notes which lingered for a long time on the palate. With the first sip I could taste some sweet notes that then were easily covered up by the bitter notes. It is definitely not a Matcha which I prefer prepared as Koicha. But for its price Tancho-no-mukashi is making a good everyday Matcha.

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.
