Firstly, I cannot believe that I haven’t reviewed this one yet. It’s my ‘go to’ matcha and I have it most days. It’s only $2.49 for 50g for an organic matcha and that was what drew me in from the start, I didn’t expect it to be as good a matcha as it is. For a basic quality organic matcha I have found none better in terms of taste or price. I know it sounds like I’m selling it myself but it’s true, I highly recommend it.
The foam is wonderful though it’s initial colour is khaki which shows it’s not top quality. It smells of seaweed and sweet grass. Taste is fairly creamy and light, slightly astringent but in a pleasing way. Also is sweet and umami with some dryness. The initial flavours match the scent though, so seaweed and sweet grass tones that linger nicely.
As I said it’s not top quality but for an every day matcha that is organic and cheap it’s fantastic. A big hit too with my husband and a few guests that have never tried matcha before but have gone out and bought some afterwards due to this introduction.
Next time I will try the step up and have the Premium quality for comparison though that is $6.49 for 50g. Not expensive but at least over double the price of standard grade.
Flavors: Seaweed, Sweet, Warm Grass, Umami
