From Tealux

Izu Matcha green tea is grown on the Izu peninsula near Tokyo, from traditional Gyokuro leaves that are shaded towards the end of the growing period to produce a popular Matcha which is internationally renowned.

The signature sweet Matcha aroma is balanced out by a lightly astringent base note, for a complex tasting experience and distinctive flavor that cannot be imitated. A high quality traditional Matcha with a pale peridot color and fine, light consistency, this Izu Matcha is naturally organic and has a satisfying taste which is both mild and full of hidden depths.

I just read a post in the disscusions that Tealux had changed their name to Tealyra. This package is labeled Tealyra, so I’m guessing this is the right tea to review this under, but I’m not 100%.
This is super bright green in the bag and turns into a really deep green color when mixed in water. There is a little bit of a bitter tang at the start of the sip, but it gets less as I continue to sip. It is really smooth, but doesn’t seem to have much of the matcha taste. It is a little grassy, a little floral, but just by a hint. This isn’t really doing it for me. There isn’t enough flavor happening for m taste.

OMGsrsly

It’s still Tealux in Canada – tealux.ca doesn’t say anything about a name change. So I think you’re fine. :)

What a gorgeous color! Couldn’t pass up trying this one. My mixer broke so I’m using my blender… Not quite the same. But I imagine the taste is pretty much the same. Very smooth with a bit of creaminess. A bit earthy at first but it finishes grassy.

Drank this one last night in my new chawan :) I probably used a little too much powder as it turned out slightly bitter and grainy tasting, but there was a nice color and sweetness. The froth was nice and thick.

This Izu matcha is deliciously thick and creamy, with pleasant green notes (peas, celery, apple). Balanced out by a nice sweet finish, this is one of my favourite matcha teas.
