Matcha Shien

Well-liked tasteful koicha (thick tea) called ‘purple garden’

Matcha Shien Matcha Shien

Shien offers an extraordinarily full, yet velvety, pampering concentrated essence of flavors. Its crystal-clear fullness, long-lasting creamy and slightly sweet, pronounced flavor with a long finish lingers in the mouth long after tasting. The Tenko next in line presents a far more concentrated, characteristic flavor and aroma. But this is primarily a koicha tea which can also be enjoyed as a usucha. Its delicious aroma is truly refreshing.

The meaning of Shien "紫苑" :
紫苑 is usually read as "Shion", but at Hekisuien they read it as "Shien". "Shien" likely comes from historic collections of books from the Heian peropd (1110~1124), whereas "shion" (紫苑) is the name of a pale-purple flower (the aster).

How to prepare

STEP 1) Put 4g (0.8 US tsp, 2 teaspoon or 4 chashaku scoop) matcha powder into a suitable tea bowl.
STEP 2) Pour 30 ml (1 fl oz) 80℃ (176°F) water over the matcha powder.
STEP 3) Gently knead with a chasen (tea whisk) until all lumps are gone.

❖ Before Step 1, warm up the tea bowl with hot water, then dry it with a cloth to create the perfect temperature so make the most delicious matcha with a fresh scent while preparing. (Optional)
❖ To prevent clotting of the matcha powder, sift it through a fine strainer before use. (Strongly recommended)
❖ After the matcha is done, drink it immediately, because as it cools down it gets more and more bitter. (Recommended)
❖ Freshness is the most important thing for the enjoyment of Matcha. It is best to use up the tea within one month of opening. (Strongly recommended)

Finnaly i finished my tin. Overall, it's very smooth as a thick tea. If you make it into a thin tea, it's a bit mild or rather very mild. I like mine 4g but with an extra bit of water about 80ml to 100ml. It works well for me. However it is lovely as a thick tea for those who likes it's thick. It's just everything you imagine it to be so I'm not going to describe it. You won't regret trying this goodie.

As the water breaks the surface of the matcha, a wonderful sweet scent filled the air. Not as fragrant as the samidori but good enough for me. I got sweet seaweed with a hint of salt. As a thick tea, it was creamy, heavy, bold, sweet with a hint of floral notes. It had a long and pleasant finish. This is subjective, that I did not get much bitterness, and it wasn't dry to the palate. As a thin tea, it was creamy, soft, mellow, subtle and clean. However I prefer it slightly stronger or as a thick tea.
