A special release matcha with a vibrant fragrance and a smooth taste.
Koicha: 4 g (2 tsp.)
Our special New Year’s Matcha release for 2022, Tora-mukashi, is bright, vibrant, and full of sweetness. It is easy-to-sip, with almost no astringency at all, and we highly recommend it for beginners as well as matcha fans alike.
Like previous years, it has a round umami character that is comforting and invigorating at the holidays and at New Year’s. We recommend preparing this matcha straight with water as koicha or usucha, to experience its deep fragrance, pure umami, and full-bodied aftertaste.
A Matcha Specially Released for New Year’s
New Year’s is the most important holiday in Japan, and drinking matcha is a part of the celebrations. Traditionally, this New Year’s Matcha is used in the first tea ceremony of the year (hatsugama). More casually, families will sit down at home with a bowl of matcha during their holiday together, enjoying the warmth of each other’s company. Beyond these traditions, this is an accessible matcha for personal enjoyment, and it makes for a thoughtful gift.
Year of the Tiger label
In celebration of 2022, the Year of the Tiger, this special label depicts a tiger walking in a bamboo grove. We hope this cute design will add to the delight of your New Year’s and winter festivities.
* The meaning of the name Tora-mukashi: Tora means “tiger” in Japanese.
Ways to Prepare
Great matcha and a perfect start to the new year!
So cute!! The best way to start the New Year!
I absolutely love this matcha. It’s creamy and floral with a bit of umami. Packaging was gorgeous.
Beautiful packaging. Nice smooth subtle sweet flavor.
A beautiful jade shade and a subtle umami grassy taste, mild astringency. The tin is a keeper;)
