From Maeda-en

Kai-yo no Mukashi (Depth of the Ocean Vintage). The depth of the ocean is a Zen expression that expresses the need to keep an open mind and to embrace all things with great virtue and humanity. It is said that long ago a student asked his tea master. How shall I drink this very small cup of tea, which the master responded, Drink it as you would drink the entire ocean.

I used my working forumula — 2 spoons, 4 oz water, 175F. Sifted, then whisked.

Nice foam on top. The matcha has a mild, vegetal smell that is also slightly salty/seaweedy.

It has a sweet pea flavor, with a slightly bitter downturn in the aftertaste — bitter in the seaweed sense and actually really pleasant.

It’s got a lot of character compared to some other matchas I’ve had recently. It’s almost smoothy like in its mouthfeel and has a nutty quality.

Very nice indeed.
