The taste of summer outdoor nature. Deep and refreshing. The name 清滝 KIYOTAKI means “waterfall”. That is how refreshing. Not leaning to the sweet but rich, it does not mean thick. No taste of bitterness, grass, or soap. It is light because it is in the water but at the same time it has this creamy finish in the mouth. When the ice starts to dissolve and the matcha starts to chill, the taste will become just right.
I prepare the matcha traditionally with hot water around 70C and whisk into a foam for 15 sec, then add ice. Ideally, it is nice to let the ice chill in the glass you will drink from, and rest it in the fridge before preparing the matcha. Then transfer the hot prepared matcha onto the ice and chilled glass.
Delicious and refreshing, the more I drink it the more I fall in love with it… can’t get enough! The perfect ice cold summer matcha!
