The Taste of Matcha
Ceremonial-grade matcha powder tea features a rich, delicate flavor profile. For the sophisticated pallet, matcha tea has a subtle, voluptuous flavor with umami overtones and a sweet aftertaste.
In other words, it’s delicious!
Thanks to matcha’s high concentration of amino acids, its flavor features a strong undertone of umami—the fifth basic taste (along with sweet, sour, bitter, and salty) that’s pleasantly savory.
Not unlike a fine red wine, ceremonial-grade matcha’s flavor is full of subtleties that emerge through reflective contemplation.
