Gyokuro Konacha

Thick and strong flavor green tea from Kyoto, Japan

$10.80 / unit

Jö******, 2022-09-17 02:48 JST, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

An intense tea and flavourful tea. After I brewed this as recommended before, going down to 5g of tea gave me a more enjoyable experience. It's less overwhelming, and it reminds me of some of the matcha teas I've had.

Low caffeine MATCHA

Matcha with 80% less caffeine content compare to regular matcha

$8.64 / unit

Da******, 2022-09-16 01:12 JST, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Game changer for me. I drink 2 cups matcha a day and would drink more and later but avoid caffeine after about 3 pm. With this, I can have a 3rd or 4th cup after just before dinner and it doesn't affect my sleep. As others have noted, the flavor is a bit diminished from the process but adding a bit more than your normally would use can compensate. (I usually use about 1 tsp to 8 oz water, with this I'll use about 1 1/2 tsp). I drink matcha partly for the flavor but largely for the health benefits, so this fits the bill for me. Recommend to anyone who is caffeine sensitive or for people who want to have caffeine later in the day.

Kansai Tea Competition Premium Sencha Blend

Ma******, 2022-09-12 02:48 JST, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A very lovely and refreshing tea. Brewed at the recommended 6 grams, 150 ml at 70 deg C - 40 seconds. First brew yielded a light chartreuse, mild, smooth, with an almost undetectable tartness, becoming very evident as the tongue cools down. Second brew at the same recommended temperature and about 40 second as well; color became more robust, a darker chartreuse with a higher yellow tint. Flavors become more noticeable with an underwhelming complimentary tartness and a hint of sweetness. A mild and welcoming astringency with a bitter-sweet finish coating the tongue. First impression, this tea is very smooth in flavor and to the senses. The bitterness is noticeable at tip of tongue on the initial sip of the second brew and gives a mild coating over the tongue of bitter-sweet and mild tartness. The flavor of this tea is more acute when the brew is at 47 deg C. The dry leaves are beautiful, deep green and long. It has a very mild scent of lemon. The wet leaves were a brilliant and deep light green and gave a fresh scent of the beginnings of Spring. This tea was brewed in a clay 250 ml Houhin. The roomy houhin gave ample room for the leaves to bloom and space in the teapot to add more oxygen to the brewing process. I would like to brew it in a Shibo but most of my Shibos are maxed at 100-120ml. I think the wideness of a Shibo would give the tea a more robust initial flavor, particularly since a Shibo would not allow for space between the surface of the brew and the lid, hence limiting the oxygen exchange and keeping the heat more directly into the leaves.
