Very good Matcha tea. This is a 2nd harvest that deserves great credit. Bright Green color, has a slight sweetness but not really bitter. Most 2nd Harvests have more antioxidants than Ceremonial grade but lack as much L-theanine and sweetness. However, most ceremonial grade matcha that I have tried are not much different than this tea. Also happens to be a great bargain. About $30 on Amazon for 2.8 ounces of matcha.
This Matcha Tea is not bad but not worth the price. Its tends to clump in my matcha bowl and takes twice as long as domatcha one. This one is not bad to drink it just lacks a sweetness. I am happy Teavana has sourced an Organic Version from Central Japan. Perhaps they bought a bad batch while buying in Japan?
very good tea, well worth $5 an ounce. I definitely taste a chinese black tea with a hint of cocoa. It has a similar body to a chinese keemun but there is no smokeyness just a taste of cocoa. Not real sweet but definitely could drink this everyday. I have respect for this tea.
This is by far my favorite oolong tea. Its very floral and refreshing. Its like taking a sip from the fountain of youth and savoring every moment. This has to be one of top oolong tea from Mandala and best oolong I have had. The only reason why I do not give it a 99 is because I get about 7 flavorful cups from the gaiwan out of this, but well worth the money.
