Kyoto Uji Matcha is our highest grade matcha, prepared from young first flush green tea leaves at Uji in Kyoto, the birthplace of the Japanese tea ceremony. Mild, mellow with a slightly sweet aftertaste and none of the bitterness found in lower grades. A top quality Matcha - the closest you can get to a ceremonial grade but comes without the price tag. Vibrant, green color in the cup.
Too soft for my taste
I purchased the Organic Matcha and the KYOTO UJI MATCHA but I have not tasted the Uji yet. I am still working on the Organic Matcha, it is good and drinking three bowls a day.
Still the best matcha I’ve found. Second time ordering and it looks like I’ll be going for a third!!
KYOTO UJI MATCHA GREEN TEA POWDER
At $19.99 for 50 grams, this is a good every day drinker. This is not the best matcha I've tried. It has a light flavor, a bit of umami, and also some bitterness with the initial taste and more so with the finishing tones. It doesn't have a lot of bitterness but it's definitely there. My preference for matcha is for it to be more rich, with a strong umami flavor and no bitterness whatsoever. The best matchas I've tried, have that and also a hint of sweetness.
My overall rating is 3/5.
For value, this is a 5/5.
Sister bought the high % BROWN RICE version
