This is the best matcha available at Just Matcha. This little store just opened in downtown Victoria, BC.
Platinum was expensive, at $1.50 per gram ($60 per 40g tin). It was definitely the best straight matcha I’ve ever had, however there was still a touch of bitterness in the after taste. In comparison to the gold grade matcha, the platinum is creamier/thicker, and less bitter. The main tasting note is the green soy bean/edamame flavour. Touches of vegetal and seaweed notes in both the taste and the smell of the brew. No grassy notes. Less drying than the gold and also much smoother.
Flavors: Creamy, Seaweed, Soybean, Thick, Vegetal
