Full-bodied with subtle floral aromas, this hearty ceremonial-grade matcha brews a deeply rich emerald green cordial with robust body, sweet-savoury undertones and a bouquet of floral notes and delicate tannins.
Iridescent green in colour, 'Meiko' (an epithet referencing to the beautiful budding of a flowering plant) is masterfully blended to create a well-defined, flavoursome brew with sweet, mellow top notes, followed by savoury undertones of salted caramel and with floral hints of tannins complementing the finish. This matcha is characterised by its remarkable ooika fragrance, a captivatingly refreshing aroma found only in the most exceptional shade-grown green tea. Perfect to be brewed on its own or enjoyed as part of a plethora of health elixirs of choice.
Meiko™ 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.
