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.

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
