Tried mixing this in a wine glass because I don’t have a matcha bowl (or anything very wide at the moment) and it didn’t work so well. Changed to a short/squat mug from Starbucks and that worked moderately better. I also need a sieve!
Made straight the first time with something like two chasaku scoops (hard to tell how much was left in the thing I used to “sift”) and an eyeballed amount of water. It has just a touch of bitter/astringent taste towards the end, but was surprisingly mild to me. This is my first matcha so I don’t have anything to compare it to.
Second taste was with three chasaku scoops, enough water to make a paste, then mixed in 6oz warm milk to make a latte. It was a bit too milky so I’ll fiddle with the liquid amounts next time.
