Tasting notes

Good balance of aroma, color, and taste.

Rich, nutty, and pleasant aftertaste.

Amount of matcha: 1.5 gram or 2 scoops by a chashaku or 1 scoop by an ordinary teaspoon

Water amount: 70 ml

Water temperature: 70-80℃

Place tea in the bowl, add hot water and mix with the chasen tea whisk. Raise then the chasen a little from the bottom and whip vigorously back and forth with the wrist and arm and avoid swiveling the tea around. When the tea is sufficiently aired and turned into a fine creamy foam, slow down and move the chasen in the surface to remove larger bobbles and to make an even, smooth surface. Finally, turn the chasen slowly around the bowl and lift it carefully from the center to produce a little mound.
