    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.

    I've had this every morning since I ordered it and it is very tasty. It is a beautiful bright green color. It is my first matcha from o-cha, and I will repurchase.

    Excellent tea. This is the third matcha I've tried and has been my favorite so far. Will be buying again!
