The brilliant green color of this matcha and it’s ability to froth well (despite my use of a kitchen whisk) immediately made me suspect it was one of the more expensive samples included in this round of the Matcha Blind Taste Test. Sadly the taste and texture didn’t appeal to me. It was strongly flavored, tasting of seaweed, with a very bitter aftertaste. I feel like it would be better suited to cooking where added sugar could compensate for the bitterness.
