Organic Matcha Ken 賢 is a matcha we recommend for premium lattes and desserts. However, make no mistake – this is not a so-called “culinary grade” matcha that is often of inferior quality.
We recommend Matcha Ken for lattes and desserts as it is a very well-rounded matcha that will hold its own even in the presence of a creamy plant-based milk. There is very good aroma, some umami and milkiness, balanced out with a nice bitterness and low astringency. The green it produces is also appealing. This is the matcha that we use in our vegan matcha gelato.
