I was lucky enough to win 30g of this from the KaiMatcha contest—thanks so much! Couldn’t wait to try it.
Color-gorgeously green and fresh, vibrant and enticing.
Aroma-deep, rich, and soothing.
I mixed a little less than 1/2 tsp with hot (about 140 degree F) water, first whisking it with a small amount of the water with my bamboo whisk (which really does the job). Next time I will get the froth better, but this time it was pretty darn good. The color, when added to the water, is stunning and deep. It’s a forest I could get lost in.
And the taste…this is without a doubt the best pure matcha I’ve had. It’s thick, buttery, smooth, lush. No astringency or bitterness here—none. It’s fabulous…my only goals for next time are to achieve a really nice froth.
I can’t wait to have another cup—thank you again for your generosity!
