Why is Matcha so good with Japanese sweets?

Japanese sweets, or wagashi, are traditional Japanese confections that are often served with tea. They are usually made from rice flour, sugar, and other natural ingredients such as red bean paste, chestnuts, and sesame. Wagashi come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from small bite-sized pieces to elaborate creations. They are often served during special occasions such as weddings, tea ceremonies, and festivals. Wagashi are also popular souvenirs, as they are a unique and delicious way to remember a trip to Japan.

Wagashi come in many different flavors, from sweet to savory. Popular flavors include matcha (green tea), sakura (cherry blossom), and anko (red bean paste). Many wagashi are also decorated with intricate designs, such as flowers, animals, and landscapes. These decorations are often made from mochi (rice cake) or konnyaku (yam cake).

Wagashi are a beloved part of Japanese culture, and they are enjoyed by people of all ages. Whether you’re looking for a sweet treat or a unique souvenir, wagashi are sure to please.

Wagashi for Matcha

Matcha is a popular flavor of wagashi, and there are many delicious varieties to choose from. One of the most popular is the Matcha Daifuku, a soft mochi filled with sweet red bean paste and covered in a layer of matcha powder. Another popular matcha wagashi is the Matcha Manju, a steamed bun filled with sweet red bean paste and covered in a layer of matcha powder. For a more traditional treat, try the Matcha Yokan, a thick jelly made from red bean paste and matcha powder. For a more modern twist, try the Matcha Mochi, a soft mochi filled with sweet matcha cream and covered in a layer of matcha powder. No matter what type of wagashi you choose, you’re sure to enjoy the unique flavor of matcha.

Matcha is popular in US

Matcha has become increasingly popular in the United States in recent years. It is a finely ground powder made from green tea leaves and is used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies. Matcha is known for its high levels of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, and is often used as an ingredient in smoothies, lattes, and other beverages. It can also be used in baking, ice cream, and other desserts. Matcha is available in a variety of forms, including loose-leaf, powder, and tea bags.

Matcha can be found in many cafes and restaurants across the United States. It is often served as a hot or iced latte, or as a matcha-flavored smoothie. It can also be found in specialty tea shops, health food stores, and online retailers. Many grocery stores also carry matcha in the form of tea bags or powder.

The cost of matcha varies depending on the type and quality. Loose-leaf matcha typically costs more than powder or tea bags, and higher-grade matcha is usually more expensive. Generally, matcha can range from $5 to $50 per ounce.

Smooth like silk on the palate. The scent of the roasted rice and matcha intemingling like the finest fragrance.

Excellent sencha. I did not taste any bitterness at all.

My favourite

The taste is balanced And not too bitter

Thank you so much for sharing your taste review. :)

Balanced of sweetness and bitterness

This one is the perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness for me. I am not fan of bitterness of tea but this combination of sweetness and little bitt of bitterness makes me feel energetic. I smell and taste the freshness with every sip in the morning. it contains 20 grams I feel the quantity is not too much. So now I wanna try their other matcha to compare.

Hello, Amber.
Thanks for leaving a thoughtful review about our matcha.

My Favorite Matcha

I have used this Koiai matcha for 3 years now since my Japanese friend recommend. I love it! It is the best I have tasted. It's fresh and nutty as well. I used to drink coffee every morning but now I make my own Matcha lattes at home. It is very dense because it is high quality ceremonial matcha so make sure you sift matcha for creamy and foaming.

Thank you for loving KOIAI Matcha. We will share this great review with our farmers. Thank you again.

Lacking customer service

I reached out twice to Osada Tea regarding my tea order, once before I bought the tea and once after regarding the discount that I did not apply and the first time a question about radiation. I never heard from anybody on either of my questions. Also the tea that I ordered tastes really bad and I don’t know why but I just can’t drink it so I was a bit of a waste of money for me and I will not be re-ordering
