The phrase "Usucha-to, a soft drink that has been around since 1933, as Shizuoka residents know," was inadvertently used to describe the I saw it on the internet. What's that, what's it called, "Uuscha-to"... Hmmm, it's a rather plain name, isn't it?

It seems to be made by mixing matcha and sugar. There are two types of matcha, koicha and usucha (depending on the quantity), and the The name "Usucha-to" is apparently derived from the fact that it is made by mixing sugar with thin tea. The originator of this product is "Chikumei-do", which we will receive this time, but it is not registered as a trademark, and that's why each company has made a name for itself. I heard that there are various products available from the company.

You may think it's the same if you add sugar to ordinary tea, but if it was so easy to make, they wouldn't be around today.

First of all, I opened the bag and smelled it, hmmm, it smells like matcha. It's a little bit sweet, and it's very sweet. It flowed down my throat smoothly. Yes, simply put, the matcha tea flavor of matcha ice cream. Also, this is so easy to drink, I'm going to gulp it down instead of water! No, it's probably easier to drink than water!

It's not bad, but maybe I expected it too much, but its normalcy took me by surprise. Yes. So, it's not the best choice for a gift for people you don't know, probably because of the light tea used, but it doesn't have much of an impact. Maybe...

After drinking it, I felt a bit of a drag and wanted to have another drink. Yes, when you are drinking it, it's all oshitoyaka, but afterwards, the sweet aroma that lingers in your mouth makes you want to have another drink. It's an attraction to habitual habits.
