Okay I went on a tea shopping binge at Cost Plus World Market (one of my fave stores) and picked this up, along with 4 others! I haven’t been to Cost Plus in months, they have really expanded their tea collection, they even have loose leaf in foil bags! There are a few others I had my eye on, but my arms were full, I’ll have to pick them up next time.
Anyway, now that I drink this tea, I remember from long ago, I think this was the very first green tea I had, because I remember the powder floating out of the tin when I opened it. It reminds me of why I fell in love with green tea! The grassy taste, the beautiful green color, semi-opaque, it even frothed when I wisked it some! The taste is so clean and creamy at the same time, it is a very nice cup to sip! Not true matcha, because it has some green tea leaves also, but not a bad substitute and it’s bagged, so it’s portable. I can totally see me having this after lunch at work to get me through the rest of the day.

Matcha in a bag really bothers me personally lol:) If I want to decant my tea, but still want something matcha-ish I’ll stick w/ mecha. Mine is loose, but you could totally put it in a filter.

I knew it would bother you! :-) But the Japanese market was closed today until Wednesday, and I was out of green tea, and I was just so so happy to find something. I think, at least for me, it’s good that it’s bagged, because I am clumsy and I tend to make a mess with powder anything-matcha, hot chocolate, sugar, all of it. But I tell ya, the matcha really makes a big appearance here in this cup.

Yeah, I’ve found making matcha when you’re sick isn’t easy, one sneeze and it’s gone lol. Better to have someone make it for you then or go this way:) Just out of curiosity, what’s the weight of one of those bags?

I think 1.5 gms.
