Yum! I do love a chawan of Matcha. There really are very few teas that I find more invigorating … it’s a great way to recharge in the afternoon.

And this one is OUTSTANDING! One of the best I’ve tried. Sweet, buttery smooth! Usually with Matcha I notice a bittersweet kind of flavor to it … but this one has NO bitterness at all, just sweetness. Very nice… Smooth, thick and lovely.

I want to buy this so bad. My next tea purchase.

The only thing keeping me from getting into matcha is the purchase of the additional tools you would need.

Really, you don’t need additional tools. They do make it easier to prepare the matcha, but, you can prepare the matcha without them. You can use an ordinary spoon to scoop out the matcha: a Chashaku scoops out an amount of matcha that is about “almond size.” I use a small strainer to sift my matcha (I purchased it at the grocery store in the kitchen utensil section for a dollar or two). I use a chawan (matcha bowl) but you can use a cereal bowl or a wide mouthed cup for that matter. Even a chasen isn’t necessary – you can use small wire whisk to whisk your matcha, or you can even use a spoon to stir it, it might not end up quite as frothy as it would with the bamboo chasen, but it will still taste good.

^ I concur! I use a spoon and a wide mug and I’m good to go!

Thank you for this info! I had my first matcha today although it was a cold milk matcha but LOVED it!! Absolutely want to get some. They had some for sale there but was 30.00 bucks for a small tin. I need to do some price shopping.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

http://52teas.com

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
