54 Tasting Notes
I find this tea very good. It has grassy notes more so than fresh spinach; it depends on how much you decide to use but you will enjoy a full mouth feel, experiencing umami. It has that fresh bright, electric green coloring which indicates a fresh tea and a reputable tea purveyor. I do recommend this tea. Quite enjoyable!
Not crazy about this matcha, now that I have others and am somewhat proficient at making it correctly. Not recommend buying. The color as you can see is a yellowish-greenish-tan, NOT A GOOD COLOR for matcha! It should be a bright, vibrant, Jade-Kelly green with an aroma to fresh spinach and grass. It did not foam all that well, then again, I was new at whisking it and the taste was just plain dull and boring, it did not have that WOW! factor. After a couple of weeks, because I didn’t finish it, I went back to it and it had lost all of it’s taste…you can’t keep matcha fresh for long, but that was ridiculous.
I did like this tea…it was sweeter than other matchas I’ve tried; I tend to like the grassier, vegetal tasting aspect of teas, with a little astringency to them. This one caught me off guard a little with the sweetness so prominent in the forefront. Whisking it up took a little effort, it never really produced the creamy foam unless you vary the amounts used or took your time in preparing it, you never really get a rich, dense, creamy foam.
The Tea Spot’s matcha is a good “starter” matcha because you get a little more than the average size for the price.
For the matcha connoisseur, I would not recommend this tea. It’s tasty and sweet but a little too much for me…Not my cup of tea!
I am new here to this site but not new to preparing tea. I absolutely LOVE Rishi Tea Matcha, 100% Premium Tea Powder it has all the attributes I look for in Matcha; it has the grassy, vegetal undertone preceded by a fine-bubbled, creamy, rich foamy, sweetness; the color is a rich saturated Jade green and the aroma is of fresh spinach with a little grass and a little hay.
I highly recommend this Maccha!
