From Material Matcha Uji

A sharp blend of Okumidori, Zairai, Samidori and Yabukita.

Sharpness is what characterizes MMU01 immediately, an intense blend of green tea varieties: we complemented native Uji “Zairai” leaves and the balanced Yabukita variety, with the confidence of Okumidori and the class of Samidori, one of Uji’s native and most exclusive variety used for “shaded” tea.

Today I learned that this tea is NOT made for koicha. Admittedly, this was probably the most intense drink I have ever had and after a minute or so, the aftertaste became really pleasant too. For the special occassion when you are in a masochistic mood and want a proper kick in the mouth. I couldn’t pay attention to any flavours, I will add more notes after I make usucha again.

Once you taste matcha from Material Matcha Uji you’ll find it hard to drink any other matcha. The others are fine for smoothies and cooking leave MMU for drinking on it’s own. Anyway, MMU01, this is a weird place to start but I’m really enjoying the aftertaste. It’s sweet with a unique grassy umami. Kinda almost reminds me of the aftertaste in a ginseng oolong. It’s so good. It has a sharpness to it unlike the other two thanks to the higher intensity of grassy flavors. Still not grassy like a green tea though. Now that I’ve had all three I have to admit I’m surprised at how different, even though subtle, each can be. MMU03 is still my favorite but MMU01 is a very close second.

hi everyone, it was the hottest day in A CENTURY where I live. it was 109 degrees!! 109! on the first day of school (I work at a university, no longer a student)! UGH.

this is the tea I packed this morning, because of its sharpness. I needed that sharp, grassy, in your face matcha this morning. I think that this is my favourite of the 3 from MMU, with MMU03 being a close second (I don’t care for MMU02, it’s fine but…meh).
