Expensive? Yes, it is. If you are in search of the absolute best matcha available anywhere, however, your search is over!  Until we started carrying it, this matcha had never been sold outside of Japan and is still offered online exclusively by O-Cha.com. A few words about this item...

The first thing you will notice about this matcha is its wonderful aroma. Extremely aromatic!

The grower has an extremely small production, and is currently supplying only the local market with this grade, so the supply is extremely limited. O-Cha.com will have this item in stock as supplies are available, which will can be very hit and miss.

Because of limited space and the age of the tea plants used for this item, the grower will never be able to increase his production. 

The typical customer in Japan who purchases this matcha are the tea ceremony instructors - because they know it to be the best.

In the Uji area where this tea is grown, the grower is well known and has written a book on the art of growing Tencha (the tea leaves from which matcha is derived.) He has won numerous awards for his Tencha from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

The taste of Manten is very distinctive and there is no competition for this grade - this is a connoisseur's class matcha. O-Cha.com is the first to carry this matcha outside of Japan. Koi-cha (matcha which is served thick) is sweeter, more milder tasting than regular usucha. Because twice the amount of matcha powder is used to make a thicker consistency, a milder, less bitter product is required, and this usually comes from plants that are at least 30 years old. While you can brew a thick matcha in the normal "thin" manner, the opposite is not true and there are really very few matcha green teas which one can make a true think style matcha. Manten, however, is one of those.

It has a beautiful vegetal and slightly floral taste. I drink Matcha every morning. I've tried others and enjoyed them deeply. I really enjoy this one and it's subtle difference from the others. It is worth every single penny. What an incredible edition to my Match obsession.

Advantages: It has a gorgeous flavor and a thick froth.

Disadvantages:

This is one of the best in the market but a little bit pricey.

It has some bitter balance that make it perfects for mild usucha but I find it is slightly too bitter for my taste as koicha. Umami wise, is good, but I hope for better at this price.

The powder is, nonetheless, so refined and is very rare to see any lump after whisking.

Advantages: Very good matcha. Very fine powder.

Disadvantages: Price is a bit too high.

Beautiful! The matcha powder is super fine and emerald green. Very balanced: delicate, smooth, and gentle, yet this is where it definitely stands out from other matchas. Simply delicious that you would want to just drink again and again. I like that there is no after taste and the mouth always stay fresh. Perfect daily matcha! Thank you O-Cha!

This is a fantastic matcha. It has the most delicious aroma I've enjoyed from any tea, and does not have a single trace of bitterness. Easily the best matcha I have ever had.

Advantages: Exquisite taste and aroma, it is different and far superior from common brands of matcha.

Disadvantages: the price
