Shoin-no-Mukashi Matcha

Regular price ₱1,250.00

Belonging to the 'Rich' category, Shoin is one of Ippodo's highest grade matchas. When brewed, it has a velvety smooth mouthfeel and heavy sweetness. With a hearty umami and sweet taste, its aftertaste is long and elegant. It can be taken as usucha, koicha, matcha latte, or iced matcha.

We recommended trying this matcha as koicha to experience the full depth and nuances of its character.

Shoin is very balanced and sweet, slightly higher end as compared to Horai. There is barely any stringency and it has a bit of a nutty profile with more umami.

Shoin is best enjoyed with oat milk to create a decadent iced matcha latte or even on its own as usucha, hot or iced. We also highly recommend that you try it as koicha, with the option of enjoying it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to make an affogato.

Hot (Usucha)
70ml 80ÂșC Water
1.5g Shoin no Mukashi

> Sift and strain 1.5g of Shoin no Mukashi into a chawan (bowl). Add 30ml of 80ÂșC water first and whisk with a chasen (whisk) in a W motion to mix together. Add the remaining 40ml of 80ÂșC water into the chasen and whisk once more. Whisking motion should start in the middle of the liquid and ending at the surface.

*Recommended to pre-heat the chawan (bowl) and the chasen (whisk). Chawan should be wiped dry before adding matcha into it. Using a strainer to sift the matcha will help avoid clumps while whisking and is highly recommended. To enjoy the foam and temperature of the usucha, we encourage you to drink it straight from the chawan.
