Intense with a mellow roasted flavour, our signature Matchaeologist ceremonial-grade matcha is artisan roasted to produce a rich, creamy body and smooth mouthfeel not unlike a perfectly brewed espresso.
Boasting the deepest shade of green reminiscent of Japanese pine trees, Matsu is characterised by its captivating roasted aromas brought to the fore by our artisanal roasting technique handed down through generations of matcha sommeliers. The result is a deeply rich and complex symphony of flavours, with notes of 'umami' and savoury-sweet undertones that round out the intensity of the roast, culminating in an exquisite blend with a full body and long, creamy finish.
Matsu™ is ideal for both koicha and usucha preparation. (20g - 20 Servings)
Usucha (thin version): place 1 scoop (~1g) of matcha into bowl; wet with a little water and knead using chasen whisk until a smooth paste forms (press the whisk up against the side of the bowl to break up any lumps); add 70-100ml of 65°C / 150°F (not boiled) water and mix until desired consistency. *To create a foamy texture, briskly whisk back and forth until frothy lather forms on surface; for flat texture, stir in a firm circular motion.
Koicha (thick version): double the amount of matcha used for Usucha while adding only half the amount of water.
About our matcha
We work closely with our trusted matcha sommeliers based in Kyoto, having spent several years formulating a range of artisanal matcha of the finest quality. Each batch of our matcha, which is ground from hand-picked virgin tea buds, undergoes a proprietary 'artisan roasting' process to express the flavour to its fullest potential. Although more difficult and time consuming to carry out, this technique offers incomparable results, as each matcha blend is characterised by its sweet umami flavour profile, unrivalled by other industrially processed matcha on the market. This has earned our matcha exclusive appeal and increasing reputation among our loyal clients worldwide.
