sweet and metallic components round out its character to reduce hints bitterness and astringency. Score = 89 on Walker Tea Review #276

I just got this for the first time this week. I tried some at 9pm and didn’t go to bed till 4am! This stuff works great for all-nighters, if you’re a student.

This matcha is fantastic. For the price, it has a vibrant green color & the texture looks great. A small taste test before mixing with water, this matcha is hardly bitter. I’ve been drinking it everyday so far.

Had this today in SoHo: http://matchasource.wordpress.com/
with the raspberry matcha tart. The tea was prepared right in front of me by a cute looking guy. I feel SO caffeinated! The tart was …. well, suffice to say that I could eat it every day.
Too bad tomorrow is the last day this will be available.

Both sound wonderful!

I took a half day off so yes, this indeed was great! I don’t know why but when somebody else prepares food/tea for you it tastes better!

Cofftea

Eh… tea not so much- I’m UBBER anal about my steeping parameters lol. Matcha prepared by someone else is good though.

inguna

Ha, ha: control issues. I can relate but once in a while it’s good just to enjoy the moment :)

Cofftea

lol yeah specifically quality control. I like my tea to be the best it can be- and I tried really hard to not make it rhyme, but I’m sick and I couldn’t think of another way to phrase it lol.

inguna

Man, that should be a song lol. They also had a lemon tart with a thick layer of matcha glaze on the top decorated with a tiny speck of edible gold. And maybe it’s a good thing I can’t get that in my neighborhood.

Fantastic for matcha lattes in the morning! Normally grassy and somewhat bitter, the warm milk adds just enough sweetness to balance it all out. I also used this to bake green tea shortbread yesterday, and it came out amazing. The flavor remains present and strong.

I had this tea at Matcha Box, a pop-store run by Matcha Source owner Alissa White. The tea itself was a bit more bitter than some of the thick ceremonial grade matchas I have tasted over the years, but I can appreciate that. The bitterness actually provides additional immune functions, and if I had my sweet while drinking (as is traditional), it would’ve been greatly reduced. Either way, you must try this tea if you are a matcha enthusiast. If you are in NYC, stop by Matcha Box (33 Crosby St, b/w Grand & Broome)…but hurry, it closes at the end of June (1 month only)!

So I came back to Matcha Box for round two of Kama Matcha. They let the water cool a little bit (too hot and you wilt the leaves, even though it’s in powder form) and I snacked on a matcha shortbread cookie (enjoying a sweet brings out the natural sweetness of matcha, and changes the flavor profile).

Long story short, the 2nd round was delicious! My rating is changing as a result :)

Very nice. However, I don’t appreciate the difference over the Morning Matcha for almost 50% more cost.
