I got this in my Christmas package from the States and actually, I’ve had it quite a few times but haven’t logged it yet.

Although I do feel like it’s matcha for a lazy person (I do include myself in this category only because I drink it when I wake up in the AM) it’s actually not too bad. It’s not overly bitter and the flavour is actually quite nice! The Republic of Tea blended the matcha with some other whole leaf green and actually, that’s a pretty good idea.

Erm, basically what I’m trying to say is that this is a relatively decent (and easy) green tea to make in the morning. Now I need to go finish this cuppa so I can get to work!

Preparation

Hm- to me this seems like more work. Heat the water to a certain temp, let it steep, then drink. Matcha is just heat the water to a good drinking temp, dump (either eye ball or measure), wisk or drink. Or if you want cold matcha, just dump and shake.

Yeahhhh… not really though. It’s actually really easy because a) it’s bagged and b) the green isn’t anything ridiculously special and needs a higher temperature than all the other greens I have at home. Also it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than true matcha… and as a person with a very low budget (agh, to be freelance) that’s a big factor! Haha.
