This is a very nice, high quality matcha. It whips to a velvety mouth feel, with a slightly sweet, almost dairy-cream taste with pleasurable hints of that slightly grassy earthiness you expect from matcha. Hands-down my favorite “everyday” matcha. With every sip I’m transported to Kanazawa’s Higashi Chayagai. Be sure to use a burui (matcha sieve), as this is an extremely fine ground matcha.
This matcha has a very pleasant aroma of umami and nutty richness. Hints of nori seaweed and almonds bring earthiness to the table, balanced by the sweet notes of flowers and honey. With a vibrant green hue, lattes come to life and are sure to please any tea savant. With the relatively low cost, this matcha is great for daily drinkers.
I am very new to matcha drinking having been a coffee drinker for 15 years but tried 3 or 4 different brands and found this one and LOVE it! So smooth and pure delight to drink!
I was looking for my favorite matcha cappuccino sticks and found Kyoto Uji Matcha, which is the brightest green matcha I've ever seen. The quality of this matcha is possibly the best I've ever tried. Shipped swiftly. Will buy again.
I was apprehensive to try macha, afraid it would be bitter. To the contrary, this Japanese Kyoto Uji Matcha is smooth and has a very subtle but pleasing favor. Highly recommend.
