Ambrosial with sweet umami undertones, this crème-de-la-crème ceremonial-grade matcha brews an exquisite, buttery-sweet broth of chlorophyll elixir with rich and malty roasted aromas.
The crown jewel of our artisan-roasted matcha, Misaki uses only the topmost, burgeoning buds of shade-grown tea trees nurtured for over 30 years before harvest, boasting the sweetest and most luscious taste profile in our range. The captivating aromas of pure umami and roasted caramel can be experienced upon brewing. Packed full of L-theanine and immunity-boosting antioxidants, this rich ambrosia can also be prepared in 'koicha' (thick) consistency that can launch you into a transcendent state of alpha-wave nirvana.
Misaki™ 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.
