Matcha Tea

I purchased the Organic Matcha and the KYOTO UJI MATCHA but I have not tasted the Uji yet. I am still working on the Organic Matcha, it is good and drinking three bowls a day.

For the price, a great every day drinker.

KYOTO UJI MATCHA GREEN TEA POWDER

At $19.99 for 50 grams, this is a good every day drinker. This is not the best matcha I've tried. It has a light flavor, a bit of umami, and also some bitterness with the initial taste and more so with the finishing tones. It doesn't have a lot of bitterness but it's definitely there. My preference for matcha is for it to be more rich, with a strong umami flavor and no bitterness whatsoever. The best matchas I've tried, have that and also a hint of sweetness.

My overall rating is 3/5.
For value, this is a 5/5.
