Matcha Kinrin

This high grade Koyamaen’s Kinrin matcha is also suitable for making thick or thin tea

Matcha Kinrin

Kinrin is “entry-level” matcha in the Koyamaen koicha tea portfolio: it is the least expensive variety in a line-up suited for making “thick” matcha tea. Preparing the Kinrin as koicha is gateway to the myriad delights of thick tea, albeit in Kinrin matcha still accented by slightly tart notes that disappear in more premium koichas. Preparing Kinrin as usucha, on the other hand, impresses with a soft, creamy, grassy flavors in a league of their own compared with matcha varieties lower down the tea portfolio listing.
Preparing Kinrin calls for great expertise since selecting the wrong water temperature will greatly reduce the enjoyableness of this tea. Heating water to 80 °C is ideal temperature for koicha and usucha teas alike. Once prepared, we should drink our Kinrin matcha immediately as bitter notes develop at lower temperatures!

Kinrin matcha is sold for a ridiculously low price considering the high level of quality. It would still be a good deal at twice the price. It has a very lively, bright green color and is completely lacking in bitterness. I would give it 4 stars when compared to the best matcha I've had which was 5 times the price! When it comes to value for your dollar, this is definitely worthy of 5 stars.

No bitter taste. I will buy this again.

Made as usucha, this matcha has a silky texture, vibrant green color, a good dose of umami sweetness. Highly recommended.

Product Review: An amazing matcha at a great price! The scent from the tin is so magically sweet and creamy. The color is a beautiful vibrant green. I first made it as usucha; there is no noticeable bitterness and a good umami after-taste. I tired it as koicha as well. Results?just as good. Sazen Review: Good customer service! Replied to my email inquiry same day. Received my package in 5 days (3 business days). Overall I would recommend this product and would purchase again from Sazen!
