8 Tasting Notes
One of my absolute favorite teas from Silk Road. It tickles my tongue with delicious subtle, sweet,smooth and grassy flavor. Sipilicious! _
My preferred steep temp is around 175 and preferred first steep is approximately 1 minute 35 seconds and a second steep for almost 3minutes. Total two steeps only.
I am quite pleased with this Matcha, so I’d have to say this is my favorite so far. I was planning on trying DoMatcha as well, but I like this so much I don’t think I should bother just yet _
Definitely has a bittersweet earthy taste and goes down smooth. I like to make mine a little thicker than normal, and the color is vibrant and the aroma is fresh and lovely.
Best part is, I do not feel the crash from the caffeine as I do when I drink my macchiato. Usually an hour or so after my morning coffee I start to feel drained and tired again. I definitely feel better about drinking multiple bowls of this per day before/after work, than I do about drinking multiple cups of coffee.
I get my pure matcha on amazon, I think it is little cheaper on there…
This Matcha was just OK, drinkable. I didn’t taste any sweetness to this really… More of a grassy dirt taste. A little more bitter than I expected, although the color was still pretty. We all tastes things differently so I hope someone can get a better taste from this matcha. I tried various water temperatures to maybe help with taste but I guess it just wasn’t the matcha for me, personally.
I just had to try the matcha from Silk Road Teas. I guess this matcha is drinkable but definitely not of quality. Dull in both color and taste. I used various water temperatures ranging from 160-175. I think this would probably would be best for cooking/baking so I might have to try that instead. For now, I will stick to Pure Matcha. =P
This is an exceptional green tea. It has a lovely sweet, grassy aroma, very delicious and light. I like to steep for two pots, first pot about 1 min 45sec, and for the second pot I like to steep for a little over 2 minutes. I was using water temp of about 170-175 but I think I like it better slightly lower temp of around 165.
I’m typically a green tea lover, but this is one of my favorite Oolong teas! It has an excellent flavor, pleasant aroma. I usually have about 3-4 pots at the approximate temperature of 185 and 1-2 min steeps. Drank it multiple times daily, went through it pretty quick. Will have to order more. =D
This tea has a nice light flavor and lovely color. I’ve tried it at various steep temps. It’s really only good for 2 steeps. Maybe I’m steeping the first pot too long? Normally I do the first one around 1min and 35 secs and second steep around 2mins30 secs or more. The second pot never seems to be as strong in flavor. I guess I prefer a stronger green tea. I will be going through this bag pretty quick, I’m drinking too much tea =D
Although I expected a little more from this tea. I do not think I will order this tea again, but it was worth a try. Overall it’s a good green tea.
