Matcha "Chiyo Mukashi" - One of our best matcha green teas. Above average in every way, this matcha is borderline between thick and thin matcha (koicha), and can be served either way. Whether you use this for the tea ceremony or as a source for antioxidants, know that this matcha, as with all of our products, is extremely fresh (we only order as we sell them) and is a quality throughout. Grown in Uji, as with all of our matcha green teas we keep this product under refrigeration until shipment.

An incredibly green, fresh matcha. This matcha really shines when brewed thicker than normal usucha (without reaching koicha thickness) at a lower temperature: creamy, vegetal yet not bitter or fishy.

I generally brew with a level half-teaspoon and 60-80 ml of water at

Advantages: Intense experience.

Disadvantages: Not that great when brewed thin, some might not like the lack of bitterness. Quite expensive.

A lively, young-tasting matcha, with a very forward umami. It tastes fresher and, perhaps, greener than any other I've tasted; however, the balance of flavors isn't to my taste.

Advantages: Quite different from nearly every other matcha I've tried, and I've tried dozens....

Disadvantages: Difficult to prepare well: more sensitive to water temperature than some.

I have n ow placed three orders with O-Cha, so that alone speaks for itself. I am very pleased with the quality of this matcha and plan to try some of the other grades when they become available, for comparison purposes.

Advantages: Excellent health benefits and the ritual is calming.

Disadvantages: None that I am aware of.

Got this with my starter kit, very comparable with the one I had previously tried. Smells great and taste is very smooth

I like Matcha and began incorporating it into my routine to cut back on coffee. This particular matcha has a lovely green color, light grassy aroma, and extremely mild flavor.

I noticed to my surprise experiencing that wonderful calm state of alertness (due to the amino acids theophylline and L-theanine) after a few days of drinking it. As a designer/programmer? It may be my new favorite food... and if your work requires focus? You owe it to yourself to try it.

In comparing this tea to a locally acquired reasonably good green tea, there was no comparison. This tea is brilliant green (the other a more dull olive) and the taste is free of any after taste or bitterness while the other had a flavor I normally associate with green teas served at restaurants.

I like the mid-way between thin and thick and prepare it on the thick side.

It is a little expensive, but the quality of matcha's effects is largely based on the quality of the matcha you drink. I've already used the quick re-order option.

Advantages: Lovely and delicious.
