In appearance: bright green powder of the smallest fraction. The aroma is intensive, grassy with a hint of seaweed.
The bouquet of the ready-made tea is crisp and vivid, with hints of seaweed, flowers and freshly cut grass. The aroma is intense, sharp and invigorating. The taste is full-bodied and vibrant, silky smooth, with a mild herbaceous astringency that turns into a long, juicy aftertaste.
How to prepare the matcha. Put 2g (2 chashaku scoop) matcha powder into a tea bowl. Pour 30 ml of hot water (80℃) over the powder and whisk it with a chasen. When all the small lumps are mixed, add, depending on the desired strength result, 40-100 ml of water more, continuing to whisk until high foam forms.
“Matcha HQ” is a vigorous tea with a smooth texture, rich in fresh leaf-green flavor, well suited for both strong koicha and light usucha. A brilliant choice for those who prefer tea with distinct but not pushy flavor.
