I am thrilled with this matcha.
I have to disclose that I am a complete novice with matcha.
I ordered this because I wanted to like matcha. From my experiences I had started thinking I was probably never going to really enjoy it, but I wanted to at least be able to accept drinking it semi-regularly to see if it helped with my health and because it seems so appealing!
I mixed this up today when I was treating myself to a home spa day. I didn’t get much froth, but I think I’ll need to play around with matcha:water ratios. It was a much different colour than the other matchas I’ve had; kind of radioactive green as opposed to a muted shade. I tentatively took a sip, and was shocked!
This is good! I think it is delicious, which is much better than the tolerable I was looking for. Smooth and mildly sweet. Not grassy, bitter, or sandy. I sifted my matcha for the first time, which must have helped with the texture, but this is just completely removed from the other matchas I’ve attempted. Both of the others I’ve tried have been from retailers with good teas, so I thought I was getting an accurate picture of what matcha tasted like. I was wrong. I don’t know how this one compares to other good-quality matchas, but I am so pleased. I’m glad this is sold at a good price so that I can drink plenty and not feel too bad about ordering more. I am so confidently converted that I threw some of my old matcha into the face mask I was making.
