This tea is full of surprises.
I have tasted several organic matchas to find that they have a soft flat flavour, almost no umami or sweetness and a strong antrisgency. Nothing to do with Akatsuki.

The powder is bright green with an intense aroma. When and easily forms a dense froth easily after whisking. The flavour is intense, complex, and eating a small sweet before drinking it enhances the range of flavours.

To my surprise I got the best results when preparing the tea with hot water (85-90ºC) unlike other matchas I have tasted.

I prepared it more like usucha (3 g /60 ml). Tried it also more concentrated (3,5 g/60 ml), its flavour enhanced but my body dit not take this amount of tea kindly. The recommend ratio is 4g/30 ml, but it is too much for me. Guess its caffeine content is high.

First cup delicious (6 g, 60 ml, 40º, 2 min). Prepare in a shiboridashi. The infusion has aan intense yellow green color. First sip sweet with a potent flavour. Tea is creamy, with umami and slight aftertaste. I appreciate a slight astringency, but would not say it is a fault in this tea.
My second steeping (60 ml, 50-60 ºC, 30"-1’) is nice though it lost most of the sweetness and umami of the first one.

Flavors: Sweet, warm grass, Umami, Vegetal

Excellent quality price ratio. Overall a very nice tea. Bright green powder, with a fresh smooth smell. Prepared it as usucha (2,5-3 g), 60 ml, 75-85 C. Always got a creamy cup, with dense body and smooth taste. In general did not notice any astringency, or it was not disagreeable. However I missed some of the umami and sweetness of higher grade matchas.
