From The Republic of Tea

Premium u•matcha™ yuzu is unlike regular green tea, these tender, shade-grown leaves are ground to a fine powder creating a rich balance of flavors in baked goods or ice cream. This exceptional tea is abundant in nutrients and has the balanced flavors of what is referred to as umami. Premium u•matcha™ yuzu makes a bright addition to mixed drinks, spice rubs and sweet desserts like the following easy to prepare recipe:

And thus, Steepsterites, I Emptied That Box!

Huzzah! I am now allowed to buy new stuff again. Point me in the direction of the nearest Dancong, please.

This last boxed item was one that Auggy sent to me, and she did so this spring, so it’s not even several years old, unlike some of the other things in the box. Right now it only contains my Bad Dog purchase from the other day. Ha!

Anyway, it’s the second of two matchas that Auggy sent to me. The first one was ginger flavoured (same brand) but didn’t taste all that much like ginger and quite a lot like just drinking super-strong sencha. Mind you, I’m not complaining about it not tasting like ginger.

This one is rather the same. Super-strong sencha, but not really much in the way of flavouring detected. I’ve had yuzu flavoured tea before, so I have a tentative grasp on what it’s supposed to taste like. It’s a kind of citrus fruit, which in itself should give a hunch. I’m just not really getting anything. There is a wee bit of a citrus note on the aftertaste, but not overwhelmingly so.

I don’t think my stance on matcha has really changed at all by trying these two. It remains the same. Matcha? Wasted on me. Sorry. I just can’t see the attraction. I’d much rather have a cup of flavoured actual normal sencha. Eating tea leaves doesn’t appeal to me in the slightest.

May I recommend a cooler water temp at 140 degrees, and brew small batches that you can consume within a minute of adding water? If you like sencha, you should like macca when prepared that way.

Angrboda

That’s what I did, but it still didn’t appeal to me.

well, shucks.

This is a beautifully bright, balanced, and well-blended matcha! I was pleasantly surprised by this. I wasn’t 100% on-board with the new U-Matcha line until I tried this one. The yuzu is uplifting and delicious while not overpowering the matcha. It remains a fine treat for a bright morning spent at home.
