I am fairly new to the matcha game…I have had a few different matchas and I own a matcha kit, but my whisking is still a little suspect. I’m sure there are many matchas out there that are better than this one and less expensive. That being said, I like this tea a lot. Japanese green teas are my favorite, and this matcha has that grassiness I like…not as much grassiness as my beloved gyokuro (and not as sweet), but it’s smooth and milky. I would be interested in a grassier matcha…I’m sure there are some out there. I used a half teaspoon for 16 oz of water, and ended up adding an additional 8 oz of water and whisking again halfway through, which must mean my whisking sucks, haha.

I’m a tea novice, and I’m loving my introduction to the World of Tea. I started getting into tea about 4 years ago when I lived in Brooklyn, NY. At first, I stayed with green teas, and took black teas completely for granted. However, in the last couple years I have enthusiastically added them to my daily routine. I love strong Assam black teas in the morning, and Japanese green teas in the afternoon, especially matcha and gyokuro. I have recently become a big fan of Keemuns. I’m looking forward to learning about new teas on this site and talking to other tea lovers!

As far as ratings go, don’t trust me. I’m a high rater, and I’m easily impressed. If I rate a tea lower than 70 (which is going to happen rarely, it seems), I probably will not drink that tea again. I will splurge for some teas at times, but I love a bargain, so you will often see me celebrating under-appreciated everyday teas.
