drank Wakamatsu-no-mukashi by Ippodo
14 tasting notes

The other of my two favorite matcha’s, along with Ito En’s Koto no Tsuki.

Perfect umami taste, and fair price at 1,500 yen. Fast shipping from Japan.

Highly recommended….

(Of course for beginners, you really need to use a bamboo whisk… 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 won’t taste right)

Preparation

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.
