After one bowl….I don’t know how I feel about this one.
When I opened the bag yesterday it smelled strongly of vegetables, I had a small amount that didn’t fit into the new canister so I decided to brew it like regular tea. Tasted like zuchinni! And matcha.
Tossed it in the tea cabinet. Opened it up today to make a bowl. Not as heavily sweet as kiri no mori and I detect more bitterness. It does not taste like veggies but has a slight zuchinni smell to it.
I will def. try this again before passing a verdict and give it a rating number. It was interesting. I opened my can of Ito en matcha and did a sniff test. Yesterday the toyo smelled like veggies and sweet matcha while the Ito en smelled blah and grassy. For some reason today they smell identical. I guess my nose must be off today! We are cooking ham and other strong smelling foods and I ate chocolate not too log ago, so that might be affecting my perseption of smells. Shall try again tomorrow. Or later this evening. After we eat some ham :)

Bio

I like tea.
I started with Lipton’s black tea, then tried grocery store brand green tea, then the Sencha Matcha mix from the republic of tea, and now I’m getting my feet wet in the world of real Matcha.
