Unlike Teaopia’s other matcha (which is Standard), this one doesn’t leave that foul fish taste in my mouth like the former. I actually really like this matcha, and have it as a treat when I’m having sushi, or need to relax. I find that this matcha’s taste is more akin to a gyokuro taste that’s been amplified 5 times over. It’s good, but certainly for special occasions. The reason being the price. If you have the money to put down on it, or you like the matcha that much, go for it. Otherwise, go for the Standard grade and add honey.
