From Aiya

For the true tea connoisseur, Aiya’s premium Matcha provides a level of quality that is typically reserved for high-class Japanese tea ceremonies. While daily consumption is encouraged, this grade is typically reserved for special occasions.

This Premium Grade Matcha is the best of the best we currently offer.
 
Of the over 200 farmers in Nishio city that are contracted by Aiya, only a select few have the experience and knowledge to produce Matcha high enough in quality to be called “Premium Grade.”  The result of their efforts is a rare treat.
 
Our Premium Grade Matcha has a robust Matcha flavor packed with tons of natural sweetness (Umami flavor) derived from the amino acid L-theanine.  Ideal to be served as Koi-cha (thick style Matcha), this grade can also be enjoyed as Usu-cha (thin style Matcha). Although we recommend this Matcha for use on special occasions, you can enjoy this luxury everyday if you so desire.
 
All of our Matcha is grown and produced in Nishio city in Aichi prefecture.  Nishio has been known the world over as the cradle of the finest Matcha for more than 800 years.
 
Each 30g (1.1 oz) tin is good for approximately 15 servings.

Backlogging: I am trying out all three of Aiya’s Pure Matcha teas (Premium Grade, Ceremonial Grade, and Organic Ceremonial Grade). Before I do an in-depth review of each tea, I want to try each of them so that I can compare and analyze.

My first sampling of Aiya’s Matcha involved this Premium Grade Matcha.

Color is bright, vivid green. Frothy! Smooth, creamy, not too thick. I recommend starting at 2 ounces and then tasting before adding a third ounce. Two ounces per 2 grams of tea turned out to be perfect for me. Sweet with a sharp, savory bitter note. A nice contrast of flavors. One of the best chawans of Matcha I’ve had in a long time! Very vibrant… no chalkiness in the aftertaste. Smooth and creamy. Very nice.

I noticed after I drank this Matcha that I was truly energized! Don’t drink Matcha too late in the day, or it may be difficult to settle down and start the rest cycle at night!

Agreed, it is a morning or mid-day, skip a meal kind of drink. I so wanted to try Aiya’s Matcha; good for you. I must put it on shopping list. Thank you.

This is actually the first Matcha that I ever tried and I think I’m addicted now!
It comes in a nice airtight sealed tin with a pull ring to unseal and a screw top for fastening, so good storage.

Very bright kelly green fine powder with a rich “green stuff” smell immediately on opening, a few clumps sifted out nicely into my tea bowl. Upon contact with water (3 oz water to 2 bamboo scoops matcha (water heated almost to boiling but not quite!) turns into a very dark vibrant green and mixes well. I need to practice my frothing technique, but even as a beginner I got a nice froth immediately.

Taste: mmm wonderful rich mouth feel, smooth and calm. No bitterness, but not “sweet” either, nice and vegetal in a good way, like the green of garden plants in the heat of summer. Froth lasts until the last drop!

Smell: very pleasant moderate “green-growing-things”, it’s there but not overwhelming.

Even a small 3 oz serving really gives a very nice feeling of relaxed energy, not “coffee jitters”. Almost soothing.

The only drawback is that it’s expensive and I can’t afford to drink it as much as I’d like- but it’s a fair price for the quality, taste and enjoyment.

FANTASTIC!!!… I love this matcha. Aiya produces high quality matcha; it’s vegetal and grassy with just a hint of sweetness [a natural sweetness that comes from vegetables like carrots so that it is not cloying] to be enjoyable.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this matcha.
