Fuku-mukashi - 40g
|Shelf life||180 days|
|Serving size||Usucha: 2g (1 tsp.)|
For those who prefer a lighter, more refreshing taste with a noticeable astringency, Fuku-mukashi is an excellent choice. Best prepared as the thinner usucha. If you would like to prepare your matcha as the thicker koicha, we recommend Kan-no-shiro and higher grades.
Characterized by its rich aroma, full-bodied mellow sweetness, and vivid green color, matcha is a favorite among tea lovers in Japan. Ground from shade-cultivated tea leaves, matcha is rich in theanine -- an amino acid responsible for matcha's umami (translates to “savory deliciousness” and is also known as the fifth taste). Generally, the higher the grade, the richer the umami taste.
Refreshing cup everytime with plenty of umami. Will have this as a daily ritual. Thank you, Ippodo!!!!
