Tomato Vine / Umami Tang / Meringue

Ten is a true treasure in our collection - a masterpiece combining peerless cultivation, processing, and blending. Made from primarily the Asahi cultivar with a small percentage of Uji Hikari, Ten delivers a deep, lingering umami with a wonderful high toned freshness. As Koicha, or thick tea, the expression of Ten shines bright - layer after layer of richness with a refreshing sweet finish.

 

Traditional Matcha
Usucha: In a tea bowl, whisk 2g of sifted Matcha powder with 65g of water (180°F) with a bamboo whisk until a fine foam is achieved.

Koicha: In a tea bowl, add 4g of sifted Matcha powder and 30-35g of water (180°F) and knead gently with a whisk until the matcha is completely mixed and is the texture of paint.

Iced Matcha: Add 2g of sifted Matcha to a tumbler or thermos, add 200g of cold filtered water and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Pour over ice.

Storage: Keep the tin in the refrigerator. After opening, place the tin in a ziploc bag before returning to the fridge - this will protect the tea from absorbing any aromas from your refrigerator.

Description: Ten is a pinnacle grade blend of cultivars from Uji City and Ogura in Uji that occupies a special place in our catalog as it is our most refined and sophisticated Koicha, a matcha meant for thick preparation. Ten also shines when prepared as traditional Ushucha. A very traditional tea, this matcha is a masterpiece combining peerless cultivation, processing, and blending. Made from primarily the Asahi cultivar with a small percentage of Uji Hikari, Ten delivers a deep, lingering umami with a wonderful high toned freshness. As Koicha, or thick tea, the expression of Ten shines bright - layer after layer of richness with a lingering umami finish.

What so special about this tea? Ten owes its power and grace to not only the farmers who grew the leaf, but the Chashi - or tea blender who adjusts the ratios of each cultivar to create the singular blend. In the case of Ten, an 11th generation Chashi crafted the matcha with the Urasenke Tea School in mind - a matcha that is the height of refinement while still embodying a type of primordial power especially in the aroma - a nod to the past when matcha was slightly oxidized and exotically fragrant.

How do we describe Ten matcha?

classic + balanced

Perhaps our most classic offering, Ten is a Koicha grade Matcha produced for the Urasenke tea school. It undergoes extensive aging - known as Jukusei - and doing so imbues it with an incredibly aroma reminiscent of tomato vines and raspberries.
