Soukou Matcha | 爽香 by Kettl
"I'm a big matcha fan. I started drinking it after I quit coffee, because it offers me relaxed alertness, instead of that jangling buzz from coffee. I've pretty much tried almost every matcha out there, and Kettl is my favorite brand, they source the finest and rarest directly from the most distinguished tea producers in Japan. Their matchas are served at high end restaurants and their restaurant clients hold a combined 36 Michelin stars! This particular matcha is the best value for your money. Unlike other matchas at this price point, it is still first flush and gently stone milled, with no astringency or bitterness. You can compare this against any matcha you've had and it won't disappoint." - Jiying

Suggested use: This matcha is wonderful straight or blended with oat milk for a matcha latte. Prepared traditionally, Soukou is fragrant and light on the palate. As a latte, the color and flavor cut through milk quite well and the tea retains its radiance even in milk.
Our gentlest offering to date and a true representation of the very best of Yame matcha, Soukou is fresh and velvety with a soft finish. We love this matcha green tea not only because it's an astounding value, but because it offers a wonderful glimpse of the charm of Fukuoka matcha: Nutty and velvety with a fragrant finish.
Soukou matcha tea is a key addition to our catalog as it represents and wonderful value while remaining first flush, stone milled matcha. Most matcha at this price point come from a later harvest and may undergo jet milling as opposed to the gentle stone milling which retains more flavor and aroma. We proud to put this matcha up against any in the marketplace - and even more proud to be able to offer it for under $20. Our outstanding partnerships and unsatiable drive to bring you the best results in a matcha we want to drink again and again.
