Meaning 'beautiful blossom' in Japanese, Misaki is the perfect name for this ceremonial-grade matcha. It brews an exquisite and richly-sweet broth with hints of butter and a roasted aroma.
This is the crown-jewel of their artisan-roasted matcha, using the topmost buds from shade-grown trees that have been nurtured for 30 years before harvest. When brewing you will experience the aromas of caramel and umami. Full of immunity-boosting antioxidants, this matcha can be prepared in 'koicha' (thick) consistency making for a state of nirvana. An essential gift not only to honor oneself but for wedding or housewarming.
Misaki is ideal for both 'koicha' and 'usucha' preparation (20-.8 oz servings)
Usucha (thin version): place 1 scoop of matcha into bowl, wet with a little water and mix with chasen whisk until a smooth paste forms (make sure to break up lumps). Add 2-3.5 oz of hot (not boiling) water and mix until desired consistency. Whisk to create a foamy texture if desired.
Koicha (thick version): double the amount of matcha used in usucha version above and use approximately half the amount of water.
Store in a cool and dry place away from moisture, sunlight and odor. Refrigerate after opening for maximum potential.
