I mixed up a cup of this when steeping some other teas and drank it while I waited. I was wondering why it was as flavorful today as I remembered it being in previous cups. Then I got the the bottom and realized I did not properly mix the matcha and it all collected. The last sip was like drinking a tiny lump of chemicals. Yeah, it was not fun. However, when this is prepared properly it is a delicious piece of apple pie so I still love it.
