This premium matcha is a product of the first flush (Ichibancha) harvest in May 2023, handpicked from a single origin ensures unparalleled quality among matcha grades. We honor the traditional method of shading for 3-4 weeks prior to harvest, which boosts the chlorophyll and amino acid content in the leaves. The result?

How To Prepare Usucha

We’ve brewed this ceremonial grade matcha many times, and this is the best matcha, water, heat, and whisking ratio that we found to produce the best taste. This is only a guide, you’re certainly most welcome to create your own to cater to your taste buds.

  1. Place chasen (whisk) in chawan (bowl) and pour hot water to make the chasen’s tines flexible so it does not break when whisking.
  2. Pour out the water and dry the chawan.
  3. Sift 2 chashaku scoops (about 2g) or 1 teaspoon into the chawan.
  4. Pour 70ml of hot water (70℃) and whisk for 30 seconds. Froth will appear.
  5. Take a sip and savour the premium ceremonial grade matcha made with so match(a) love.

This is how we like to prepare our usucha but your perfect matcha brew could differ. I suggest experimenting until you find it. You can start with 1 chashaku scoop (1g) to 50 ml of hot water (not boiling). Or 2 chashaku scoop to 100 ml of hot water. Don’t make the mistake of using too much water thinking to get a lighter less bitter tea. What you’re only doing is diluting the flavour. Ujiha’s Ichi ceremonial grade matcha has slight to no bitterness, specially made to be enjoyed independently without additives.

How To Prepare Koicha

Koicha, on the other hand, is a stronger-tasting and thick tea. It is concentrated and therefore accentuates every flavour. Follow the first 2 steps of preparing usucha.

  1. Follow the first two steps for preparing usucha.
  2. Sift 4 chashaku scoops (about 4g) or 2 teaspoons into the chawan.
  3. Pour 50ml of hot water (not boiling) into the chawan.
  4. Mix it well until there are no clumps. Foam won’t appear, and there is no need to whisk.

Taste Profile

Our matcha experience commences with an unassuming slight note of bitterness, coyly opening the doorway to the following symphony of flavors. Soon, a whisper of walnut sweeps in, accompanied by an unexpected yet welcome touch of sweetness. Everything works harmoniously with umami balancing out the palate. The grand finale is a lingering aftertaste, punctuated by playful hints of fruitiness, leaving a flavorful imprint long after the last sip. Truly, it’s a taste journey that seems to echo in your senses, almost like a fond memory that refuses to fade.

    Matcha newbie here but lucky to have found a great start in my matcha journey. I’ve heard matcha tasted like grass, but all I tasted with Ujiha’s ceremonial grade matcha is this savory note that I can’t describe with a hint of sweetness, and this fruity aftertaste. Thank you!

    Matcha is my coffee alternative and this one delivers. It is also not bitter compared to the ones I’ve tried before. Which tells me about the high quality of their matcha. Looking forward to my next tin. Wish they had a subscription option that may lower their price? Or a value pack maybe?

    I’m glad I bought the bamboo whisk! Besides the myriad known benefits of green tea ten-folded by drinking the whole leaf, the meditative process of just whisking away in the morning is a stress relief. Their matcha are cheap, but more importantly, so good!
