For the matcha connoisseur with a discerning taste, Seiun is an excellent choice. Rich in umami, it has a distinct fragrance and aftertaste that linger pleasantly in the throat. Seiun is also an excellent choice as a koicha.
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.
Highly recommended for matcha lovers. This has replaced my morning coffee.
Plenty of umami; slight malt overtones. Excellent overall.
