Usual matcha characteristics. A very pleasant vegetal, grassy taste; no sweetness but a joy on the palate. This is a “thin” matcha so the mixture tends to be watery, so adjust accordingly.

Overall, I do recommend trying this matcha just for the experience alone. A good starter matcha, not a bad price for good quality.

Finally got my homemade matcha frappucino. I used this recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/matcha-green-tea-smoothie-or-iced-latte-133955

But I didn’t have any vanilla syrup, so I dashed in a little bit of vanilla extract.

Upside:
I think it tastes pretty darn good!

Downside:
I have to clean up the mess. And ice cubes are hard to blend, I had a couple of whole ones and big chunks. Maybe I’ll used the crushed ice setting on my fridge for the next one.

I also had to dig an old unused spare McDonalds straw from a drawer to drink it. My bendy straws were too skinny to hack the bigger ice pieces.

All in all, I’d do it again. It’s cheaper, and I don’t have to leave my air conditioned house. And it was fun!

I love the process of making tea with Matcha. I make only 3 or 4 oz at a time, so it’s a quick drink, but that’s all right, it’s part of the “ceremony.”

Sifted the matcha, whisked it, and drank it down. I used more than I normally do, and I am now WIDE awake and ALERT. It kicks in quick too.

I was actually going to try making a green tea frappe, but then realized that I’m out of milk and really low on half & half, and my honey is crystallized. Whoops.

Had to update this tasting note again. Aromas of spinach & seaweed. Powder is bitter. The frothed mixture is sweet. An un-frothed mix with water is bitter. Holds froth bubble & consistency for a long period of time..ex: 15mins.

I must say everything about this matcha is perfect. The shipping packaging, the container, the color, the smell, & the taste are amazing. I purchased this matcha not for adding to desserts or ruin with milk, but to enjoy as a price conscious version of matcha. I absolutely love Gyokuro, & for this to be the ground version of it..is nothing short of amazing. The powder itself is a little bitter without water. Once infused with water, it gives off a spinach smell with a sweet taste. The color of the matcha is a darker shade of “bright green”. I will definitely be purchasing the other 2 varieties from Matcha Source. This matcha is highly recommended for the price & quantity.
