Have you made your own matcha?

No, I have not nor do I want to. I just purchased the other day some Matcha Tea Powder from an international grocery market and it is lovely, creamy and smooth. I did this purchase since the pricing was so inexpensive as opposed to this KalieMatcha that I won but I may have to pay the sum e$49.95. Anyhow, prior to opening and submitting to reviewing it, I wanted to reacquaint myself with Matcha and make my way to sampling this tin of finely grown pure Matcha.

I am not sure if they will charge for how long I take to getting to reviewing it. So may teas with no time at all since I am always busy with things.

I saw this and tried it out with some cheap sencha in my coffee grinder, and it turned out pretty well IMO (I’ve never had real matcha before though) :)

Since reading that drinkers of Matcha and konacha have 1/10th the incidence of stomach cancer, I have been drinking Matcha and Konacha. Matcha is stone ground Tencha tea, while Konacha is ground Sencha tea. I found a great producer of Sencha teas in Ureshino, Japan called the Tokunaga Tea Co. who have a Facebook page and they air-mail four or more bags of their tea at a time for me. I use a Porlex grinder to mill the Sencha leaves to fine powder, and as I am a potter for 57 years, I use mainly my own chawan to brew and drink from. 75 now, and hoping for more time to become really good with clay!
