Kinrin │ Matcha │ Marukyu Koyamaen
One of Marukyu Koyamaen's most popular offerings because of its versatility. An perfect introduction to thick matcha (koicha) but equally enjoyed as a thin matcha (usucha).
As a thin matcha Kinrin it is noticeably smooth, soft and creamy with a rich grassy flavor with undertones of more complex flavors.
Kinrin is more temperamental than our introductory Yugen. Be more cautious with water temperature as slight variations will change the flavor. Using water at 80 °C is suggested.
STEP 2. Pour 70 ml / 2.4 oz of water 80℃ / 176°F water over the matcha powder.
STEP 3. Whisk with a tea whish (chasen) until foamy.
RECOMMENDATIONS❖ Use soft water, but not mineral, distilled or purified water. Much of US tap water is hard water, containing minerals that may interfere with the taste of your tea. If you have hard water or lack a filtration system to remove mineral particles, then bottled water can be used. Distilled or purified water may result in a flat tea.
