This was the second piece of my December Obubu CSA shipment. Fresh from the minute I opened the pouch to the instant I whisked and drank it. It’s got the trademark bitter leaf taste that is, well, matcha, but it’s not so bitter or flat that it makes you want to set your cup or bowl down. Sweetest variety of matcha I’ve yet tried that wasn’t labeled as ceremonial grade. Nice emerald color, not as chalky as restaurant grades. Love it.
I was able to put some pics and more thoughts on my blog, with a picture of the yanagi bancha leaves as they were steeping (the other part of the shipment). http://bit.ly/ufFqKX
I actually brought my tin of Gokou Matcha with me to the office to enjoy as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. It’s that refreshing, at least for this matcha fan.

Oooo, I’ve been meaning to try this. Really fascinating story about the cultivar used to make it.

It’s good stuff, for sure!

This is exactly as described. It is milky and creamy. I would suggest this matcha for a newbie who is not used to how bold a matcha can be. It is very subtle. I think next time I may make this as a latte.

Today was the first day in my 22 years of life that I truly got the experience matcha. I’ve tried matcha before, but it was always as a super sweet latte—which I never really cared for. I bought matcha powder a long time ago-some random brand at a grocery store— it was bitter and I wound up tossing it.

Obubu’s Gokou Matcha has changed everything for the better. I ordered it from Yunomi.us during the Matcha Day sale. It’s slightly sweet and creamy— without having to add cream or sugar. Now I’m sad I only ordered a small bag.
