This is my first experience with Matcha, so it is hard to compare it to anything.
As others have said, it is very smoothe—however, it does have a little bit of a bitter flavor that I did not taste when I drank other Den’s Teas that had matcha added. The bitterness wasn’t terrible, but it hasn’t made me excited about Matcha. I will say that this Matcha is good enough to show me what the taste/texture of Matcha is aiming for, and it helps me to imagine what a good Matcha could taste like…. so I do want to try a higher quality one sometime. However, I’m not ready to go out and buy 20g more…so hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to try a cup of the high quality stuff to see if its worth paying the higher price.
Nonetheless, this is good value for the price. If you like Matcha and have a limited budget, you probably won’t go wrong with this.
For Matcha of this quality/cost (just a guess): 84
For Green Tea (just a guess): 74
Overall (just a guess): 79
