Picked this up in San Francisco in Japan town. Some store that sold tea an incense tucked away in a back corner. I had no idea what I was buying (other than matcha) and feel I stumbled onto something kind of amazing. I have been adding a little matcha into some creamer, frothing it up and adding an ice cube to combat the summer heat. What I get is amazing! It is so smooth! There is no bitterness! This matcha is quite mellow on the sip and has only a slight green tang at the very end of the sip and aftertaste. I am not super familiar with matchas, but this is the best I have had yet! I’m trying to pace myself and not go through the tin too quickly!
