For the most discerning of matcha connoisseurs, we recommend Ummon-no-mukashi. Rich in umami, it is the highest quality tea amongst the Ippodo matchas. This matcha is especially recommended if you want to really experience the characteristic full-bodied yet mellow sweetness of matcha. To appreciate its flavor and aroma to the full, we recommend that you prepare this tea as a thicker koicha.
This matcha was named by Zabosai Sosho XVI, the grand master of the Urasenke family of tea.
