    Toyo Mukashi is fragrant but delicate matcha with a story to tell.

    I brewed it at 160°F / 71°C (I could go slightly higher, but this is my preferred heat) with distilled water. I attempted both usucha (thin tea) and koicha (thick tea) methods and found usucha to be better for this type of matcha which was already mentioned in the descriptions of this tea (thin body.) It sifted almost effortlessly, and it foamed beautifully when used with a chasen (bamboo whisk) in my stone chawan (tea bowl).

    It is a creamy and smooth drink; It goes down very well. I don't detect any astringency (bitterness) as it was sweet, umami-y, and vegetal.

    I also don't smell or taste chemicals which I was expecting (as I'm sensitive) when purchasing this as this was labeled, not organic. This should've been labeled as natural or, at least, organic if they did not use any pesticides. It's also a vibrant green, brighter than my top 5 matcha teas, and this has replaced some of my favorites.

    This one can easily contest with expensive premiums— outstanding quality for the price. I will be a repeat customer for this one.

    TLDR: Not bitter, sweet, smooth, creamy, vegetal. 100% would buy again.

    I had less expensive as well as more expensive matchas but this is the one I prefer. It is very smooth yet very tasteful. This will be my morning matcha. Not harsh at all. A no fuss matcha.

    The matcha came to me as described. It has a great vibrate green color and I am very happy with the tea that it made. It’s smooth, and flavorful.

    I actually like this better than some of the more expensive options sold by O-Cha, although I haven't tried the two super-premium varieties. Nicely balanced with some pleasant bitterness, and works reasonably well as koicha despite not being marketed that way.

    Hi, can i know what's the suggested grams of tea to volume of water ratio for this?

    We don't really use grams per volume of water when making matcha. Typically, you measure out two scoops from the bamboo teaspoon used for matcha. I would guess this is about 1/2 to 3/4 of a teaspoon. This is put into a *pre-heated* and dried ceramic bowl - this is important. Then you add hot water slowly to the bowl and whisk with a pre-wetted bamboo whisk. How much water? You have to judge it, there's not a decided amount. I would guess it to be 1/4 to 1/2 cup.

    It's one of those things you have to practice and make a judgement on, it's not really determined.

    Thank you, I have received my shipment, and the matcha tea smells heavenly. I am a bit perplexed about the instructions to refrigerate and then bring to room temperature for two hours. My plan has been to drink the matcha in the morning before work. Unfortunately, I do not have two hours. I do understand that there is a concern about oxidation. Do the temperature guidelines also have something to do with moisture? We live in a very dry climate here. Yesterday we had 5% relative humidity. Occasionally there is a stormy, wet day, but that is rare.
    So, do you think I could keep the matcha under a relatively constant temperature in a cool basement that is not well lit?
    Thanks again--

    The moisture content of matcha is about 2-3%. Most likely where you live is higher than 2-3% humidity. If you keep it in the fridge and then open it up immediately it will suck up moisture, yes, absolutely. You're better off to just keep it in a cool place and not the fridge once the seal is broken. That applies to just about any green tea really. Until the seal is broken, yes, keep it in the fridge. Once it's opened, don't.
