Gokou Matcha Koiai flavor chart

Scopri i risultati del metodo di degustazione del tè in 4 fasi di Nio Teas

To evaluate the Gokou Matcha Koiai, we evaluated the texture of the matcha as well as the flavor. Does it produce a dryness, sweetness, minerality or acidity? We’ll also evaluate how thick or rich the consistency of the matcha is, otherwise known as mouthfeel. Finally, for matcha specifically, we like to take a look at the vegetal flavor of the tea, as this is a profile consistent across all types of matcha.

Passaggio 1: osservare l'aspetto

The color of the Gokou Matcha Koiai is a darker olive green color and its sifted into a fine powder

Passaggio 2: valutazione dell'aroma

The aroma coming off the powder as it is mixed into water is salty and savory, almost like a marinated tofu

Passaggio 3: degustazione del tè

The Gokou Matcha Koiai starts off strong with a rich savory flavor. There are these steamed vegetable notes in the mid palate but they are well balanced by the creaminess. The finish is slightly on the drier side, with a slightly starchy, graham cracker sweetness added in.

Passaggio 4 - Valutazione della sensazione al palato

For the most part, the Gokou Matcha Koiai is smooth and savory. There is absolutely no acidity, but there is a hint of sweetness and a hint of dryness

100% coltivato biologicamente e di provenienza etica

At Nio, we prefer working with tea farmers who use organic farming techniques and avoid the usage of toxic pesticides or chemicals. We firmly believe that this natural farming approach not only enhances the flavor of the tea but also promotes the well-being and sustainability of the tea fields.

Our research indicates that tea farms that follow these organic farming practices not only cultivate robust and thriving tea plants but also foster a vibrant ecosystem that sustains a diverse range of flora and fauna.

JAS Japanese Agriculture Standards logo

Certificato JAS

You’ll find that the Gokou Matcha Koiai, as well as some of our other teas bear the JAS logo, certifying that they comply with the Japanese Agriculture Standards. These regulations prohibit the use of pesticides and chemicals in the cultivation of tea. 

At Nio, we selectively work with farmers who practice pesticide and chemical-free farming methods. When working with bigger tea farmers, we require them to have the JAS label, which can be obtained through soil sampling and analysis.

For smaller tea farmers with limited resources for soil testing, we also accept the "pesticide-free" label to provide them with the opportunity to get their teas discovered while adhering to our commitment to sustainability and quality.

Servizio da tè necessario

If you're planning to make matcha, you will need some specific tools and accessories, including a matcha bowl (chawan) - a wide, shallow bowl typically made of ceramic or porcelain that is designed for whisking matcha. You'll also need a matcha whisk (chasen) made of bamboo and featuring thin tines, which is used to mix and froth the matcha powder with hot water. A bamboo scoop, called a matcha scoop (chashaku), is also necessary to measure the correct amount of matcha powder and transfer it to the bowl. Lastly, using a sifter to sift the matcha powder is a crucial step in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony and is also recommended for everyday use to ensure a consistently smooth texture and high-quality cup of matcha.

osada tea farm in japan

Luogo di produzione e coltivatore

Informazioni sull'azienda agricola

The Osada family has been cultivating tea in Shizuoka for generations. They have successfully transformed their small, family-run tea farm into a medium-sized enterprise that provides employment opportunities to many people in the surrounding area.

Despite producing a higher quantity of tea, they continue to uphold their commitment to quality. They achieve this by partnering with small producers located in the mountains. By doing this, they are able to combine the attention to detail of a small tea field with the experience and resources of a larger operation. To improve quality further, they relocated their production facility to the mountains, closer to the source of their tea.

Proveniente da Shizuoka

Giappone

The Gokou Matcha Koiai is produced in the organic village of Isagawa, which is a term used to refer to a group of tea farmers who have pledged to grow their tea without the use of harmful pesticides or chemicals.

When it comes to tea cultivation, it's not just enough to ensure that one's own fields are free from pesticides and chemicals. It's equally important to ensure that the surrounding lands are also free from these harmful substances. This is why it's crucial for the farmers of Isagawa to collaborate and ensure that all their tea fields are entirely organic.
