Company: Drink Motto

Tea Type/Varietal: Matcha
Region: Japan / USA
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: sparkling bottled tea
Liquor Color: clear with fritz
I purchased this tea during a visit to the Harvest Food Co-op in Central Square of Cambridge, MA. This is a store that I visit every now and again, if I am in the area. I had not seen matcha offered as sparkling drink ever. I am very to have tried this, it is very nice. I shook the bottle and opened very carefully and poured the drink in my glass filled with iced.
Drinking of this tea is like having a glass of champagne, except it is not as fruity as some champagne. It is dry and crisp with the tannins tingling on the palette. The medley of matcha green tea, honey, organic agave, fresh lemon juice, and the organic apple cider vinegar mixes very well together. This is truly a lovely experience, I am only sorry to have purchased only one bottle because I thought it was a bit too costly.
Overall tasting notes: Dry, crisp and citrusy with overall slight tingling effect on the palette.
Cup’s characteristic: fresh and mildly astringent
Liquor color: light pale green
Taste: dry and crisp like having eaten a green apple
