Recent Tasting Notes
Matcha Shosen was a pleasant surprise: I have been won over by the fullness and power in taste and the excellent price/ quality ratio.
In my opinion Matcha Shosen is an Usucha-grade Matcha. But you definitely can enjoy this Matcha on the stronger side without an overwhelming bitterness.
You only have to be a little carefully with the brewing temperature.
Matcha Shosen shows the complex aromatics of umami with a wonderful balance of richness and fullness accompanied by sweetness and subtle bitterness.
It is definitely one of those few inexpensive Matcha which makes a perfect everyday treat, provided that you enjoy a rich umami flavor
