From Naoki Matcha

This blend won a Silver Award in a National Tea Competition. It has a naturally sweet taste with some floral notes.

This blend is from Yame, Fukuoka. It’s a place renowned for its high quality Gyokuro teas, but many growers there have started producing good matcha too. It’s got a fresh natural sweetness with buttery, floral notes and a huge smooth finish.

It won a Silver award at the national tea competition in Japan and its best enjoyed as a matcha tea so that the natural sweetness can be experienced in full without distraction. A great start to the day, always.

Happy Matcha Monday! ❤

For some reason, the descriptors for this particular blend just caught my eye when I was perusing Naoki’s website, so a tin of it came to live with me!

I admit, I don’t drink usucha very often, so I really need to practice making it more. I’m sure a lot of the subtleties of this matcha are lost on me, but I still found it delicious. Very light and fresh-tasting, with notes of vibrant green grass, garden peas, green apples, and meadow flowers. There’s very little bitterness here as well, just enough to offer a pleasant contrast to the other flavors. The umami is quite light, more of a supporting element to the main bright notes, though it does come forward a bit more at the end of the sip.

Someday I’ll have to do a side-by-side comparison of this with their Superior Ceremonial blend just to see how they taste together and what other subtleties I can pick out. So far I’m quite impressed with Naoki Matcha, and to me their prices seem quite reasonable for 40g of high quality ceremonial grade matcha with a tin included. Would definitely recommend!
