I purchased this Maccha Uji No Sato from Maiko Japan Online Store. I made a regular drink without whisking it. What you need to know about Uji No Sato is a thin or usucha type of matcha tea. With its name Uji, it refers to the region it came from Uji, Kyoto Western Honshu Japan. This is a superior type of matcha “maccha” tea.
In Japan, they call it Maccha & not Matcha. Long before maccha was introduced as a healthy beverage to countries like the USA and Europe. Maccha is commonly used in Japan and soon was changed into Matcha. The spelling is different though the pronunciation is the same. Most people use Uji type of Matcha Tea for ceremony practice.
Japanese creates different terms and varieties for the matcha they make so nothing is the same. The matcha that I bought is organic. It does not cost much to try this type of matcha. Matcha for tea ceremonies at Tea Houses is expensive and sometimes hard to find. They are regulated by Tea Masters who are certified from level I-IV recommends the flagship products for use.
Maccha Uji No Sato is the good tea for you to drink and enjoy. It is refreshing, aromatic and light. Overall, I like this tea. I gave it a rating on 8/10. The quality of the Uji No Sato is good. I like Uji for drinking. I can tell the tea leaves used to make this tea are slightly old. Stone grind and machine grind matcha tea even have its own differences when it comes to their taste, texture, and color. That is what I learned throughout my journey.
You may find other matcha tea quite expensive. Uji No Sato is a good way to start your matcha tea experience. If you are at the experimental stage, I suggest you buy this type of matcha tea.
