Harvested: May 2021.
Quality : No. 4 out of 5 qualities for “thin tea”
The Hoshino Seicha produces 5 quality levels of matcha tea for “thin” tea.
The 5 quality levels differ in taste and the intensity of the green colour.
The finest quality has the fewest bitter substances and the most intense green colour. The lower the quality, the more bitter substances, not to be confused with unpleasant bitter substances in a poor quality tea, and none of the teas from Hoshino are of low quality, therefore no unpleasant bitter substances.
The bitter substances in Hoshino matcha are finely tuned, and in some teas only help to give more flavor and fullness.
This matcha is suitable for what is called “thin” tea, which is still a full-bodied tea with creamy foam on top.
Yame notsuyu The taste is mild and the texture is creamy.
In the aftertaste you can experience grass and seaweed as well as a mild mineral taste.
This matcha has slightly mild bitter substances, which also helps to give body and taste.
Store in a dry and cool area.
