This is a High grade offering from Ippodo, a traditional teashop in Japan specializing in tea form the Uji region.

Tancho-no-mukashi in Fasi

This might be the first time I have ever detected a floral note in matcha, sweet yes, but this is distinctly floral almost rose like. Drinking this is drinking something which you know is there, you feel its warmth, you taste its sweet and bitter combination with the slightly chalky mouth feel which lingers into the finish. But before you know it half the bowl is gone, then the whole thing, and you are wondering what happened, because you are convinced you did not drink nearly that much. But what you remember of the sip you took was that it was good, subtle and ever so enjoyable, but seemingly non existent.
