Yay! I love this matcha.
Like… love.
I have tried a few other kinds of matcha before this and they had had a sharper more vegetal bite. This is much smoother.
I still like to make my matcha with cold milk but this has nice nuttiness and isn’t sharp. Eminently sippable and it got me through three days of filming on around 3 hours of sleep each night! That gets a serious A+.

ETA – thank you for the free sample, Kaimatcha! I love it :)

Ooo, lucky! Trying all this flavored matcha is making me want to try a really good quality plain matcha!

Trying all this plain matcha is making me want to try a really good flavored matcha! It’s too bad matcha is so freaking hard to package – I would be totally willing to swap a sample!

I would be happy to send you a sample of some flavored matcha if you could send me a sample of this. I usually double bag mine.

Bio

I’m a writer and as such, am obviously an emotional rollercoaster. I used to drink tea a lot more, but kind of stopped and switched to coffee. Now, after too much stress, I’m completely unable to drink coffee anymore, so I figured tea would fulfill some of my “awake” needs as well as calm my emotions. I’m working my way through a huge selection of samples of pretty much everything, leaving notes so I remember what I like.
I love being adventurous and trying new things, even (especially?) things that sound strange or off-putting. Aside from tea I also enjoy tasting wines. The last really interesting one I tried was a dandelion wine! (And yes, it actually was delicious. Extremely bizarre and herby, but delicious).

I don’t have a set of numerical ratings set down yet, mainly because I’m very intuitive (read: disorganized and opinionated) about how I rate things. Basically, If something is in the 70-85 range, it’s pretty good, totally drinkable. Below that, in the 50-69 range, it was probably incredibly boring. I really hate boring tea. Below 50, I wouldn’t drink it again and might not have finished it (I actually really hate leaving ratings below 50, it makes me feel bad. I’m probably too nice). If it’s above 85 then I really liked it. Super high ratings are reserved for teas that totally blew me away.
