YUM!! Now I don’t really don’t have anything to compare this to except the matcha powder in the Starbucks green tea latte, but dang this is good! Apparently they make matcha from these leaves, so if you like that, you will probably like this too! The colour is gorgeous, it has a bit of a grassy smell, but it’s very fresh and sweet, I’d say it’s more sweet than sencha. For me, the only downside to this green tea is the price; I wish I could afford more of you, gyokuro! q-q
I DID steep my first cup in water that was far too hot and it was a bit bitter, so if you have an electric kettle like I do and don’t really monitor the water temp, I just suggest adding an ice cube or cold water to your cup before you pour in the hot water, that helped me a bit.
