About This Blend

TEALEAVES Tencha Matcha is a ceremonial grade of 100% stone-ground green tea leaves. Tencha are young tea leaves hand-picked from the spring harvest, traditionally shaded for 20 days under a covering of straw honzu and reed. Shading is followed by steaming, then drying in a brick oven called a tencha-ro. Tencha Matcha can be consumed as ‘thick tea’ (koicha [濃茶]), where only a small amount of water is added to the tea to make it liquid. ‘Thin tea’ (usucha [薄茶]) – better known as a 'frothy tea' - has a higher water to tea ratio. Especially in the case of koicha, the palate quality is of utmost importance with the tender, sweet leaves deemed to be the highest quality (most palatable). Tencha Matcha's vibrant green hue is indicative of the quality and newness of the Tencha leaves selected. This vibrancy also reflects heightened health benefits. These include a high level of antioxidants, as well as key amino acids that promote relaxation and well-being. Tencha Matcha is energizing, yet balancing. The palate of Tencha Matcha is vegetal and slightly umami, with a smooth and velvety mouthfeel. This indicates the highest quality of milling. Through time-honored small-batch production methods, Tencha Matcha pays respect to the tradition and craftsmanship of matcha and Japanese tea culture.

Great Sample Size!

I am totally new to matcha so this was a great way to try it out without overcommitting. It is very vegetal and that's a new taste for me. It does have a smooth or creamy texture to it. I like it best as a latte. And the "good" rating is just based on my own taste buds, not a reflection on the quality. The quality is just fine.
