TSUYOSHI is an exceptional and rare ceremonial-grade stone-ground matcha carefully prepared by Mizota san in Yame.
Made from the first harvest of the year, its high caffeine and theanine levels offer your body and mind what you need to reach your maximum focus. Sweet with a nice hint of bitterness and a delicious mellowness.
A delicious and beautiful treat. Here is what our tea instructor Yuka san says about TSUYOSHI: “It is a distinguished matcha, light, with a pleasant round and astringent taste with a sweet and refreshing aftertaste. Its flavors are sophisticated with creamy and slightly vegetal notes. It is also good for usucha (light matcha) and koicha (strong matcha). As koicha, its flavors are intense, rich and excellent!”
Like for all matcha, please store TSUYOSHI in your fridge and keep it away from heat sources and sunlight.
Food pairing recommendations
You may enjoy this matcha by itself or pair it with something simple like a wagashi or a piece of chocolate.
