Got a nice sample from the Green TTB and in all honesty I tried this and said “HELL NA”
Maybe everyone else got a different batch or something… what I have is olive green (dark) and I suppose that’s okay because it isn’t tencha from Japan so I don’t expect bright green. My problem is the taste is quite bitter and really rough. I whisked the hell out of this like I would with any other matcha, but it just isn’t working for me. Reviews here say floral and that is the final tip that must mean I got a mislabeled, old, or weird version of Deluxe Matcha because mine had zero floral; and I pick up floral very easily.
I have enough for at least 12 tea bowl whiskings, but I am not so sure that I can do that to myself. Does anyone have a picture of theirs because I am curious if I have something different.
