It’s fall again. Why do I mention it? Because this is traditionally when matcha is released. Ichiban (first picked) matcha is stored away from spring to fall to give it more depth of flavour. Every year there is a ceremony for the release of new matcha which has been stored in a Jar underground. After opening the jar, the tea is stone ground.
Anyways, this house matcha (Ceremonial grade) is fine for the tea ceremony. The colour is green. The taste today was mild. There should be more aroma and flavour tommorow, as I just opened this after it travelled.
By the way this is Jigase method tea. Plastic sheets are placed directly over the tea plants. Also, the tea leaves are picked by shaving the leaves. This is why you see round tea bushes, because it makes it easy for the tool / machine. Expect a bit of a stronger flavour because of it. Most of you should prefer it, because of this. The economical price is a plus.
Delivery waa superfast, four days!
I will update this review as time goes on.
