On a road trip for the holidays I neglected to bring green tea so I picked this up out of convenience. I was impressed. It is a very solid grassy green and easy to make on the run. I have tried a few from this brand and overall I like what they do. You get a good value as well 50 bags for 10.00 or so. Not bad. Not having any experience with Matcha, I can’t speak to that aspect. I will say, the cloudy nature of the tea, the bright green color, and rich flavor make this a winner in my book. Not fancy and no bells or chimes ringing, but I find no fault in it.
