I purchased a tin of this in a health food store. I wondered why it was not simply listed as Matcha. Can someone elighten me?
I made a latte with it last night, whisked some of the powder in a cup of warmed milk. A little sweetner was needed for my taste. I found it very green, not grassy. The taste was rich in sencha flavor, but not overpowering. This morning I added it to hot water with some sweetener and it dissolved much easier. Both the latte last night and the tea this morning were more like brewed coffee as far as texture goes. I got a little grit or undissolved leaf but not a problem with me as I used to drink my coffee like espresso…thick. This is my first Matcha or gound edible tea or whatever. I like it.
It is too costly for every day though. Now I am going back to the Clouds and Mist. :)
