This matcha has a bright color and a nice grassy smell. I used a bamboo scoop to measure it, two scoops. I whisked it with 3 ounces of water at 175 degrees until frothy on top. This tea had a smooth, bitter flavor that wasn’t overwhelming. I also tasted the same grassy notes I smelled before making it. It was pleasant and bright, so far my favorite. I enjoyed my matcha with mochi. The grassy bitterness helped to cut through the sweetness of the mochi, while at the same time, the sweetness of the mochi made the matcha even smoother somehow. Afterwards, I felt calm, alert, and cheerful.
