Hatsu is the lightest character blend in our regular matcha lineup. Its taste is highlighted by astringency and a short aftertaste, and it has a refreshingly sharp personality when prepared straight as usucha. With a soft green color, it can also be a smart choice for people who enjoy using matcha in baking or in making lattes.

Ways to Prepare

The standard matcha whisking method, made to be a normal, liquid consistency. We recommend drinking usucha at teatime for an energetic boost. It goes well with chocolate, cakes, and other confections, Western or Japanese.
