Sipdown! (33 | 163)
Oops, so apparently I never wrote a note for this one. Luckily I did do an Instagram post on it, so I have the notes from that!
The powder has a gorgeous vibrant green color and fresh scent. It whisked up well and the stunning color continues in the prepared matcha!
This matcha has a delicious fresh flavor with a good balance of clean grassiness and richer umami and vegetal flavors. There’s a light sakura note and a crispiness at the end of the sip that reminds me of green apples. It’s also quite smooth, with a bit of pleasant bitterness. My only criticism is that there were some larger leaf particles that sank to the bottom of my chawan, even though I sifted the matcha.
So today, I’m finishing this sample off in oat milk. I had originally planned to make 12 ounces, but there was quite a bit more matcha left in the packet than I expected, so I ended up having to add more oat milk, ha ha. So giant oatmilk matcha latte it is! :P
