drank Matcha Yugen by Marukyu-Koyamaen
93 tasting notes

I actually had this for awhile in my cupboard.
The tiny can just stood there in my fridge looking pretty
…I lacked the courage to try it.

But today is the day!
Took me forever to whisk the pouder out, F-O-R-E-V-E-R, but the end result is pretty. Fresh cloudy green. Aroma: The pouder before steeping/whisking is very…seaweedy.

But the first sip revealed a sweet tea with a little seaweed note at the end.
JOY! The seaweed I can work on… Maybe work with the amount of matcha.

Many things can be said about me, but I rather not go into details… Other than the facts that: Yes, I am from Greenland (Yeah, it’s totaly awesome!) and I love my books, cats and tea.

I love all kinds of tea, but must confess a greater love towards the Da Hong Pao and a deep hatred for Ceylon and Pickwick. (Yes, I am aware that Ceylon is area). Sorry, It’s not them, it’s me.
Other than that I love the greens, the whites and the blacks (and all of the things in the middle) evenly.

Rating system – I love the smileyrate here on steepster, so I’ll just follow that. That’s 1 point for the worst tea in the history of man, and 100 point for some of the best tea… note that I usually rate high because I am a optimist and love all things tea.
