I continue to enjoy this matcha from Swanson Health Market. I find that this matcha is milder in taste with very minimal astringency. I can fix a quick cup of this matcha and simply drink it whole; not sip by sip as I tend to drink some that are stronger in astringent.
I like the color and the aroma; that greenest in character denoting it is green tea. And it makes me feel good for drinking it.
Overall tasting notes: Matcha tea is very light in astringent; it is freshly cup of green tea with lots of antioxidants that is good for you.
