Wakaki-shiro has a refreshing, balanced taste, with just the right amount of astringency. It's best prepared as the thinner usucha, and a good choice for people who enjoy matcha on a daily basis. It also works well for baked goods or cooking with an especially beautiful matcha color. 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.
