Matcha Shohaku

Powdered green tea favoured by Hounsai, the 15th generation grand tea master of Urasenke

Matcha Shohaku
CM Urasenke

Shohaku is the best entry-level tea for newcomers to the tea family named in honor of Daisosho Hounsai, the 16th Grandmaster of the Urasenke tea school. It is a highly pleasant tea with a slightly acrid, yet full-bodied taste, with deeper tones as well as a long-lasting, slightly sweet finish. It is a usucha tea with a superb price-quality ratio, made truly spectacular with its refined flavors.

I used 70c of water. Mellow and fresh with a hint of floral fragrance. Middle body, Umami unfold nicely, slightly bitter and leave good sweet aftertaste. The tea is not too complex suitable for everyday cup of tea.

Some of the best matcha I have ever had. This makes Teavana's matcha seem like a bad memory.

This matcha has a nice aroma and color. It is suitable for usucha. The scent while whisking is not as fragrant as some other matcha I have tried from both marukyu koyamaen and other brands. The taste is mild with some bitterness, which is good for an economically priced everyday matcha.
