I have a 2g sample of this Matcha, it’s in a small, thin envelope which fell to the bottom of one of my tea drawers which is why I have been so late in trying it. I’ve just lost my train of thought, my parents dog Jasper (old gal) is going into the hallway for some biscuits but instead of eating them out there she is bring them into the living room and eating them here, she has been back and forth several times doing this! That makes no sense, yet she seems happy doing it that way.
Once the Matcha has been made it’s a beautiful green colour, not super dark and not light. I checked a colour chart and the name for it is ‘yellow green’. I was hoping for a fancy name. Ok colour aside it blended very well and has a beautiful light, sweet and creamy flavour with only a little astringency. Very delicious…I’m taking large gulps…can’t stop myself. I’m loving Matcha at the moment, got 200g of basic kitchen grade on it’s way from Yunomi.us. Part of my new diet (that I keep trying to get on), instead of taking vitamin pills I’m going to have a cup of Matcha a day and my husband is going to join me. Such a shame I can’t buy more of this one, I would have stock piled like crazy. After the Matcha I already have I’m thinking of trying the starter Matcha from Red Leaf Tea, it’s only $20.99 at the moment and $9.99 for international shipping for 1lb of the stuff (to any Brits that is 453g ish and a total of £18.50 delivered). An unbelievable price, has anyone tried it? Not drinking as much for the flavour as the benefits :)
