Taste notes

Sansho is a fine choice for those who enjoy matcha with plentiful umami and sweetness, balanced by a little astringency. It has a medium body, with a round aftertaste and a pleasantly sweet aroma. As koicha, this matcha’s nuances are much more prominent, and you can fully appreciate its balance of umami, astringency, and fragrance. As usucha, Sansho is good option for everyday teatime, served straight and with cookies, cakes, or other sweets. In a matcha latte, its mild astringency pairs well with the milk, producing a softer drink with more umami than our lighter blends.
