10K Ceremonial Matcha
The 10K Ceremonial Matcha has been a staple of mine over the last 2 years and I’m always thoroughly impressed by its quality and flavor. The tea is crafted from tencha grown in Kyoto, a region renowned for its matcha production, which is evident in its balanced character and sweet finish. The fact that only the highest quality samidori leaves are used and carefully blended by tea master Masa only adds to the tea's premium quality.
The ceremonial-grade matcha has a vibrant green color and a smooth, velvety texture. The flavor is rich and nutty with just the right amount of sweetness, making it a delightful drink to enjoy on its own or as part of a traditional Japanese tea ceremony.
I also appreciated the attention to detail that Paru Tea has put into every aspect of this tea, from how it's grown to how it's packaged. The tea comes in a beautiful, resealable container, keeping it fresh and easy to take with me on the go.
Overall, I highly recommend this matcha to anyone who's a fan of matcha or looking to try a premium, ceremonial-grade tea. It's a high-quality tea that's well worth the investment, and it's sure to leave you feeling satisfied and refreshed with every sip.
I was expecting this to be better tasting. The packaging and price lead me to believe it was going to be a new favorite. I love the store and staff but I was not a big fan of the matcha. I would say it smells sweet, but the taste more bitter.. I first tried mixing it at 170 and am getting better results at around 162 degrees.
Hands down our favorite matcha to make in the morning with a splash of your favorite oatmilk.
It was exactly what I was looking for in a matcha. Love the floral notes and the depth in flavor.
