Production: Shade Grown and Stone Milled
Often reserved for traditional tea ceremonies—it’s approved by the grandmaster of the Urasenke School of Chanoyu—this higher-grade Koicha (thick matcha) from the Marukyu-Koyama En company never bows to the bitterness typical of lesser-quality marketplace matchas. Its soft, deeply complex flavors, velvety green color and delicate, fresh fragrance gives way to an intense, lingering umami-rich finish. Prepare a bowl of Choan, or “Long Peace” in Japanese, to create a calming, ritual space in your day—with or without the tatami teahouse.
Whip our fine matchas with traditional matcha whisks and bowls for optimal froth and flavor.
2g | 8oz. @ 205˚F | whisk until frothy
Serves 10 8oz. cups per 1oz. of whole leaf tea
