From Red Leaf Tea

From the succulent Japanese hills in Uji, Kyoto, an exclusive brand of tea is nurtured known as the Emperor Matcha. This tea is as rare as its elite location, which is also known as the origin of the sophisticated and elaborate Japanese tea ceremony.

Emperor Matcha tea can only be produced through a special process that involves growing it in cool and well shaded environments. It is ground into a fine paste using ancient stone grinding techniques that are designed to bring out its rich savor. It has been described as possessing a velvety and buoyant taste. The fine enriching flavor that comes from the Emperor Matcha tea is highly sought by the most affluent of the world.

In addition to being an excellent accompaniment to any high tea gathering, the Emperor Matcha tea has a highly nutritive value. It aids the body in its constant fight against diseases and also adds to the general nutritional balance of the body. It can be enjoyed in any setting as long as the participants are willing to appreciate the added elegance that this fine tea lends to any atmosphere. This is because of its superior and unique taste.

Like many other top notch teas, the Emperor Matcha contains sufficient amounts of amino acids and also caffeine that can get anybody to jump start their busy day easily. For those who want to spend time in quiet relaxation and meditation, adding a cup of Emperor Matcha, allows the body to relax and glide into its naturally physically relaxed and meditative state.

Emperor Matcha is aesthetically beautiful in its herbal bright green hue and it’s unforgettable rich lingering aroma.

Red Leaf Tea Emperor’s Matcha is very Earthy, green and vegetal. This matcha has a very creamy, thick mouth feel…VERY UMAMI!!!

The only way I describe the flavor profile is a creamy-spinachy taste and vegetal to the palate. The flavor stays with you after finishing your portion; with a slight hint of sweetness undertone.

The matcha whisks up into a very thick, creamy, bright almost fluorescent green crema on top of a beautiful dark Jade green liquor…VERY BEAUTIFUL, exactly what you strive for when preparing and enjoying a bowl of matcha!

Best made as KOICHA, but can add more water to taste if desired.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this matcha if you are a connoisseur or are familiar with the proper preparation of this fine beverage.

The dry matcha in my warmed chawan smells fruity and sweet.

After whisking the matcha, the smell is more vegetal and nutty with maybe a little hint of popcorn. The matcha tastes a little roasty and very umami rich like spinach with an accompanying bitterness that lingers on the tongue. It’s got a hint of fruit flavor hiding in the background, but mostly what comes through is a roasted taste. It is rather biting on the tongue.

It also leaves a really gritty feeling in my mouth even though the matcha was put through an extremely fine sieve before whisking. There seem to be pieces that feel scratchy and dry. I’m not enjoying that at all. It kind of makes me choke.

Up to that point I was indifferent about it, but the drying texture of it is rather offputting to me. Nothing bad on Red Leaf Tea, I have rated another of their matchas “100” in another review.
