My review is almost the same as for toyo mukashi with this one. I think I like toyo mukashi just a little better, but they are both very tasty. I am happy to be able to indulge in maccha, I can get a more consistent result than I can with senchas, where brewing parameters can vary from harvest to harvest, personal habits. It's harder to drink too much maccha, as well, since you make it in small amounts.

Mild and sweet, softly announced green butter. Not much umami or marine nor vegetal and absolutely no bitterness. Leaves a wonderful nourishing taste in the mouth - an almost silent flavor that still speaks.

Kiku Mukashi is an outstanding quality matcha for the under $20. It is a weekend treat in our house (along with Toyo Mukashi, which is of similar quality, although I prefer Kiku Mukashi for its flavor profile/slightly higher quality). I have ordered it many times and it has never disappointed.

When it comes to the everyday matcha, with just enough flavor and character to keep you content, while not jonessing over where your next bowl of matcha is gonna come from cause your wallet is on the lean side....this is the perfect purchase. Does it have a five star flavor profile??? Absolutely not...its not supposed to. i have not had many twenty dollar matchas with this amount of balance and boldness. Its honest and revealing of some flaws but they are quite easy to overlook. Would be a great entry point to people curious about tea or wanting to explore the different grades. Works well with a mineral rich water like aqua panna.

I am new to matcha but I have experimented with a couple of others before I settled on this. Very smooth, refined taste, but what I am most impressed by is the calming effect. Whereas with other green tea I sometimes get a bit buzzed and lightheaded right after drinking it, this one never had any weird aftereffect. Calm energy....

I have bought this matcha before, and it is wonderful in my opinion. When the water is just right, you can certainly taste why it is called the "chrysanthemum of old." There is a flowery flavor, very green with smooth consistency. A nice froth appears during whisking with a great aroma. Delightful to drink, slightly grassy with only a very small astringent note. I've noticed that Kiku Mukashi leaves me feeling very calm and serene after a bowl or two. I would highly recommend this matcha to everyone.Truly unique and a great price for the quality.

I was really impressed with this matcha. I have had other matcha before that was not near as good. This one was extremely fresh, vibrant green, easy to whip into a froth, and delicious with no bitterness that i noticed. Thank you so much for offering such a great product at a very reasonable price!!

Very good, above average and price point is very good! I love all the teas I've tried from O-Cha, from the very expensive to the least expensive. All are good! I find this one is perfect middle ground for me. My boyfriend says that if I don't get my tea, that I am a cranky girl! Lol!! I live for my Match from O-Cha!! Love your company and all it has to offer! Thank you!
