Gold Matcha Premium Matcha

Gold MatchaGold Matcha Premium Matcha offers matcha from Nishio, a region in Aichi prefecture famous for its matcha.

I’m very thankful because I received the premium matcha, which is the company’s highest quality matcha.

Besides this one, there is a superior and a ceremonial one.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that it’s also JAS certified organic, which is always good news.

Alright, let’s take a closer look.

It’s a  golden, 30 gram tin can. It’s a nice touch because it goes along the brand’s name. Inside, you’ll find a foil bag with the matcha inside.

Gold Matcha Premium Matcha powderThe matcha has a sweet, vegetal aroma. I could also feel a slight creaminess.

I liked the powder’s bright green color, it’s very desirable.

Indulging in a premium organic matcha

As usual I’ll be tasting this matcha in usucha-style: 2 grams of matcha and 60 ml (2 oz) of water at 80°C (176°F).

Gold Matcha Premium Matcha brewedI was able to effortlessly obtain a good-looking layer of foam. Not too bad for someone that doesn’t prepare matcha daily 🙂

Now comes the best part. I took various sips for the final verdict.

This matcha is very smooth. The thickness of the foam can be felt and there is very few astringency, with even less bitterness.

I didn’t find it grassy at all, it’s more of a fresh flavor with a good amount of body.

There’s nothing else to say, it’s a high-quality matcha that tastes great.
