Naoki Matcha Nishio Bloom

Naoki Matcha Nishio bloom

This is one of the three teas that come in the masters collection matcha set from Naoki Matcha.

Nishio city in Aichi prefecture is famous for its matcha.

Since I am much more familiar with matcha from the Uji region, I decided to review Nishio bloom first.

Tasting a matcha from Nishio

It’s been a long time since I tasted any tea for the blog. I’ll tell you more about that in my next post.

So I’m very happy about this review.

As one would expect from a high quality matcha, it has a vibrant green color.

I’ll concentrate on its aroma now.

It feels like pure sweetness. Because other than the sweet aroma, I can’t detect marine nor vegetal notes as with most matcha.

I’m not sure how to describe it properly, but it is a refreshing sweetness instead of a deep and creamy sweetness.

Very good.

Now I’ll go ahead and prepare it.

Before whisking it, the liquor has a sweet aroma and notes of boiled greens.

Finally, I can take a sip of this charming green tea.

The flavor is mellow and not bitter at all.

It’s easy to drink. I’ll describe it as smooth, with medium body.

A high quality matcha for sure.

I haven’t tasted the other two teas from the set, but if they are as good as this one then they must offer a lot of value.
