My Rishi order just came in yesterday with this in it. I haven’t invested in the full matcha set (yet), so I prepared my matcha exactly as you did (without the latte bit). I had no problem with getting the matcha to foam, so that was cool. I’m not a fan of the little packets either. They look cheap. I have a feeling I’m just going to put this matcha into my protein shakes or smoothies.

@Ricky… I won’t kill you for using a steel whisk, but I may kill you for the melon syrup. lol! Just kidding. Melon syrup does make me gag though. And RE: the "supposedly this is the best matcha and the packets- I agree! While I LOVED this @ Kavarna Cafe and evidentily it does foam, I don’t think I’m gonna get this until they change the pacakging.

@LENA… Den’s set is calling you… ;)

Seems none of us like the convenient on the go packets. I mean if you’re preparing matcha (the proper way), you wouldn’t be drinking it on the go anyways. Then again, when would you prepare matcha on the go!?!? I guess if you are making a cold brew.

Melon syrup’s from Starbucks =P, that’s actually what they use in their Green Tea Latte. Just following their recipe.

Den’s Tea is calling me to get a matcha set! I wish Den had 1oz samplers for some of their tea selections.

I can see making it in a regular bowl or even coffee cup and mixing it w/ a spoon, but that packaging is going too far for me.

The Matcha Miyabi from Den’s Tea doesn’t seem to have any bitterness. (It is outrageously expensive, though.) I plan to try their other matcha once I’ve finished this tin.

Den’s Matcha Kaze isn’t bitter either. I think Rishi’s matcha is closer to Uji Matcha “Kiri no Mori” than Matcha Kaze though.
