Second taster note on this; changed-up my approach.
Except for days when I require something stronger and maltier, I turn to matcha as my morning pick-up. That every-other-day-task has fallen on Joy’s Izu Matcha. It does what its supposed to and still tastes good. I’m apt to add that it actually fizzes up nicely when paired with 170F water as opposed to the usual 165F. When I’m in a hurry, that’s what I default to. That adds a bit of texture to an otherwise zesty cup.
