Tsubokiri is a lovely sober seasonal matcha that is available in autumn time only. It has the beautiful green aroma, smooth and creamy texture that is known in Marukyu-Koyamaen matchas. What I love is this unique creaminess, it really is unlike other brands definitely. I also find that this brand takes a little more effort to whisk for foam, so usually 20 seconds for me.
For overall taste, I like the matcha flavor, the balanced green perfume, just nice and mellow. No bitterness in the after taste. Delicious floral and sweet. It does not strike at you but it is more easy going and aromatic.
Recommended as a daily matcha, it is very easy to couple with or without sweets. I do not mind to have this matcha several times in the day because of the very fresh aftertaste of delicate floral fragrance and sweetness that lingers in the mouth.
A nice hot cup of this matcha in the cold autumn is wonderful!
