Kimmo-no-mukashi - 20g
|Shelf life||180 days|
|Serving size||Usucha: 2g (1 tsp.)|
Kimmo-no-mukashi is a matcha with just enough umami to represent the true character of matcha. It also tastes delightful when used to make matcha lattes.
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.
Bright Green, no clumps, sweet and mild. I originally purchased the Kan No Shiro but it was too astringent for me. Sebastian in customer service assisted in letting me know which version I needed from the description I provided. Great matcha from a great Company with Great Customer Support!
I placed my first order from Ippodo Tea Co. a month ago
and I am truly satisfied with the handling of it and the quality of the packaging..... my tea arrived protected in a cardboard box filled with more paper surrounding my teas! The tea I ordered has the best flavor I’ve ever found in any other matcha tea.... easy to blend and so sweet without even using other flavorings. It gives me the energy and alertness that I’m lookin for... just perfect tea!!!
