drank Koto No Tsuki by Ito En
14 tasting notes

One of my two favorite matcha’s.

High in the savory “umami” flavor, no bitterness, perfect for thick or thin matcha.

$19.50 per cannister, fair price for ceremony-grade matcha.

(Note for beginners, you need a bamboo whisk for matcha… a Chawan (tea bowl) is desirable, but you can get away with using a pyrex or ceramic bowl, but without the bamboo whisk, the matcha really is not going to dissolve properly and will not taste right. For some reason using a Western-style metal whisk doesn’t work, probably because the bamboo whisks have up to a hundred tines, whereas metal whisks might have only 10 or 15)

Preparation

Profile

Bio

Started drinking tea regularly in 2003 when I read that tea helped broken bones heal faster, because I had one.

Discovered high quality loose-leaf a year later and was soon hooked on Indian, Chinese, and Japanese tea.

Also amassed a small but happy collection of Japanese Teaware.
