Gold 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.
The 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).
I 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.

Hi there. I’ve been buying my Matcha from GoldMatcha and noticed my last order came from the US. The tin and packaging is different as I’d the taste and flavour.
The tins I received on my first order were akin to yours and the detox benefits were very noticeable. I didn’t notice anything with the latest one from gold matcha
We’re you trading thru Gold Matcha prior ?

It’s best if you contact Gold Matcha directly, since I don’t sell that product, I just reviewed it.
Also, I don’t drink tea for detox benefits, so I can’t help you with that respect. I’m into tea because of aroma and flavor.
