Isuzu (五十鈴): Isuzu, translated “Fifty Bells”, is an entry grade ceremonial matcha. The name "Fifty Bells" is a reference to the Isuzu River that flows through the Ise Grand Shrine in Mie Prefecture, Japan. While suitable for use in tea ceremony, Isuzu is excellent for everyday matcha drinking. It has a good balance between astringency and “umami” flavor. It is a great introduction to usucha (thin tea) or for making high-grade confectionary and ice cream. Store in refrigerator or freezer to maintain freshness!
