I picked this one up from the Teavana Heavenly sale. I have to admit that I’m super glad I did not pay full price for this. I am pretty new to the matcha experience. Mostly I have grown fond of overly sweet concoctions given to me by Starbucks. I’ve been wanting to buy a set similar to this for a long time so I was quite excited when it went on sale.
But this stuff has two things I don’t care for very much. It’s very astringent and somewhat bitter. It leaves a flavor on the back of my palate that I, in no way, enjoy. I would much rather have grassy nuances than full on punch in the face of whatever seems to be my issue with this tea. There is some nice elements, such as the initial creamy flavor. But it is easily over-run by the back end of this. Perhaps this is just a personal issue. I’ll have to keep trying to make this one.
edit I have to admit that I do love the set though. The whisk and the chawan are really lovely. I have also re purposed the box it came in! lolol I give the presentation an A+.
