Tea Review: Tsubokiri Matcha (Marukyu Koyamaen)

Advent Tea Calendar Day 9

Tsubokiri Matcha
Marukyu Koyamaen/丸久小山園
Type: Green
Origin: Japan
Product Description:  Not provided.

Temperature: 175° F
Tea Amount: 1 gram (1 teaspoon)
Water: 2 ounces (1/4 cup)

The matcha powder is boldly green with a savory aroma of seasoned wood and salty marine green nori.

The aroma in a warmed bowl is richly green and nutty.

After whisking, the matcha developed  an aroma that is sweet and vine green with notes of cooked edamame.  The taste is smooth, creamy and richly green.

Tsubokiri Matcha is ideal for usucha (thin tea) and available seasonally in Autumn.  With a pleasantly rich and mellow taste, this matcha could easily be enjoyed alone or paired with food or the traditional wagashi.
