Saisho Konomi Matcha
Umami, Sweetgrass, Toasted Rice
Early spring-picked ceremonial grade matcha with abundant grain-like sweetness, little astringency, and a subtly savory finish.
This matcha is a perfect balance of sweet, bitter, and savory. The vibrantly green vegetal notes are rather subdued and are balanced with deep oceanic tones. Sweetgrass, toasted grain, and a mild nuttiness round out the cup
Traditionally, about two grams (one non-heaped teaspoon) of matcha is added to the brewing vessel before adding 75ml (a third of a cup) of water around 175℉ and whisking vigorously until all the clumps are dissolved and there is a fine layer of foam.
For larger volumes as well as lattes, we recommend scaling the ratio mentioned above. For instance, a 12 oz beverage would use six grams of matcha and one cup of water for brewing. We highly recommend adding a considerably smaller amount of 175℉ water (~⅓ cup), whisking to dissolve the matcha entirely, and then adding the remaining volume of water. This technique will greatly reduce the amount of clumping in the final beverage.
