Really can appreciate this tea. As the lady of the vegetarian supermarket said to me: There is tea to strengthen your Yin and there is tea to strengthen your Yang… this tea is right in the middle, for when you are already balanced.
As it seems I am balanced, this tea is well taken by my body. Drinks easily, has enough power to notice its strength and can easily be steeped up to 4 times, becoming more gentle per steep, without losing its characteristic taste.

Truly the mother of all green teas… Still needs to be discovered by many, but I guess that that is just a matter of time.
Funny enough many think that matcha tea needs additional effort, while in the end, preparing the tea happens in a jiffy as it does NOT need to steep. 2 bamboo scoops of matcha, water at about 80˚ C, foam it up with a bamboo whisk for about 15 secs and you are good to go!
Not just good taste, but especially a good and long lasting feeling after consumption.
