I’ve finally made my way to this brew. The powder is glowing! This matcha has a beautiful color. I absolutely love it! The powder carries a fresh and creamy spring scent. I take in short sniffs of vegetation and wildflowers. This is a very nice matcha. I prepare my chawan and get to brewing. The warmed powder has a deep creamy scent. It’s an almost chocolate milk aroma. I prepared this usucha and koicha. This is so creamy and delicious. I was able to whisk up a thick and textured froth in my chawan. The brew remains a vibrant emerald green. The smell is of pure life. I take a sip from my bowl, and it’s as if you can feel your body awaken. The taste is smooth with incredible depth. I take in tones of vegetal, algae, cream, and almost an almond flavor. I recommend if you are brewing koicha to reaaaally sift the powder. This matcha does clump very easily. Otherwise, this is an incredible drink. I really appreciate being able to try this. I shared my brew with many others, and they agree that it is a brilliant brew.

My new phone arrived, yay! Of course the yay is also prefaced with an annoyed groan because I have to learn how to use this one, get all the settings to where I like them, get all the apps, and contacts, and all that fun stuff situated. Electronics can be so complicated in their enjoyment!

Today is Monday, meaning a Matcha day! Today we are looking at 3 Leaf Tea’s Ceremonial Grade Matcha, a vibrantly green little number from Uji, Kyoto. The color on this Matcha really is quite fantastic, the photos don’t do it justice, it is luminous in its greenness, which is a good sign. The aroma of the Matcha pre-whisking is very sweet and creamy, notes of hay and sweetgrass mix with sweet cream and a distant fruitiness. Somewhere between berries in bananas, very light but it adds an interesting depth.

After a sifting and whisking I am greeted with some excellent froth and morimo-algae green liquid. Also, as a side note, when did morimo algae balls get so expensive? They used to be fairly cheap little aquarium friends. Anyway, the aroma of the now frothy Matcha is very sweet and creamy with a slightly green kelp note, very pleasant on my nose. Ok, moment of truth, I have had so many bad Matcha lately that I kinda live in fear now…and yeah, I had nothing to fear, this is some good stuff! It starts sweet, stays sweet, and end sweet, not a hint of bitterness to be found. The underlying notes are intense green, like kelp, zucchini, lettuce and freshly cut grass. On top of that is creamy squash and sweet cream, this Matcha has a lot going on, and I like that, this Matcha was a breath of fresh green air, a pleasant return to tasty form!
