From Adagio Teas

Matcha, the focal point of the Japanese Tea Ceremony, is a fine powder made by grinding green tea leaves. Only the finest, young, shade-grown gyokuro tea leaves are used to create matcha. The leaves are plucked and laid out flat to dry. Veins are removed and the leaves, now called tencha, are carefully ground in granite mills until they become the precious powder. Easy preparation is achieved by placing 1 teaspoon of matcha per cup (or to taste) in a cup, adding a few drops of hot water (160-180F) and stirring with a spoon until a paste forms. Add the rest of the water and stir.

This is a Samidori cultivar from Uji, Kyoto, flavored with natural cacao. It is a high-grade Spring (first harvest) tea. The 2oz tin will make about 24 8oz servings.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 170° for 2 minutes.

Happy weekend! ❤

Prepared this as a cold matcha milk – 1 teaspoon of matcha to 8 ounces of soy milk with a touch of sweetener.

I’m not tasting chocolate at all, which makes me sad. The dry powder actually did smell somewhat chocolate-y. The matcha is grassy and sweet, and actually more bitter than the Adagio blueberry matcha I tried yesterday. I do taste a somewhat roasty flavor that somewhat reminds me of genmaicha.

So a bit disappointing. It’s not bad, by any means (although it is a bit too bitter), but it doesn’t taste like chocolate.

P.S. – Who are these people who review on Adagio? I feel like every single one of their teas has a score of 90 or higher…

I’ve always felt that way about the reviews on Adagio, too. It’s like, just because they get buyer points for leaving reviews on Adagio, they feel obligated to only leave glowing reviews, or something.
