This matcha has a sweet aroma balanced by a lightly astringent base note, which provides a complex tasting experience and distinctive flavor. Izu Matcha has a satisfying grassy taste which is mild and complex in its depths. This tea is great prepared with water, or blended with rice milk or coconut milk for an entirely new taste experience. Don’t be afraid to experiment and find the perfect taste for you.
Our Matcha is shipped in our Teas New Jersey storage tins and can remain stored in their tins for long periods of time. However, Matcha is best enjoyed as soon as possible even when given the most favorable storing conditions. For this reason we purchase small amounts at a time and sell them the same way to ensure freshness. Our Matcha should be enjoyed rather quickly, but be sure to savor the experience of these Japanese delicacies. Given their high grade they are suitable ceremonial drink or for use in things like smoothies and are great enjoyed cold as well. Store these tins in dark, dry, and odorless places to ensure freshness.
