Nursing my arms (3 viles of blood drawn and 2 flu shots last nite) today w/ a half bowl of this!:)

Oh my, you do need nourishment!

Are you finding that matcha does help you feel better? I always wondered if that was provable.


Food could do that. I just need comfort:) Being a manual wheelchair user, having 2 sore arms is not good.


Madison. physically- maybe. Emotionally- OH YES! And there is a direct link to emotional and physical health.


Glad this matcha is giving you a smile as you’re nursing those arms =]

I’m surprised it’s still in your cupboard!


Not for long Ricky. That’s why I’m ordering Den’s organic.


I’m sure they hurt more because I use my arm muscles more than the average person by pushing my chair.

I’ve been enjoying my Kiri no Mori matcha for the last couple months iced, hot, and mixed together with powdered sencha (not bad!), but after receiving my first chawan as a birthday gift from my wonderful fiancée, I finally had an excuse to get a chasen and do things right. I rushed out and picked up a cheap 80-prong whisk to practice with, and I can finally say it’s worth every penny.

I’m just “OK” at mixing up my matcha, but my fiancée is amazing at getting a delicious, thick froth with the Kiri no Mori. I add two sifted scoops of matcha and about 2-4oz of water to my preheated chawan, and she uses her magic touch to feverishly whisk up a tasty froth. I’m a little paranoid of scratching up the bottom of my chawan (even though I soak my chasen beforehand), but she has no problem saying just above the bottom of the bowl to get the perfect foam. It’s similar to the brew I previously concocted with a milk frother/whisk, but MUCH creamier and more uniform — there’s just something special about sipping on seafoam!

So far, I’m incredibly pleased with the Kiri no Mori. Its taste and aroma are somewhat mild, but I love the way it retains its mellow sweetness in any preparation. It really is a wonderful beginner’s matcha.

I want a matcha whisk (and bowl to) sooo badly, but they’re just too expensive *sighs


Haha! Well, depending on where you get your equipment from (and if you do it all in a combo), you can save a little money. I started out with the matcha and a scoop (chashaku) and slowly added on the extras, but I know I’ve seen complete kits for between $30-$40 on Yuuki-Cha and eBay.

You can mix the matcha well with an electric milk frother, but the foam is somewhat fleeting. I don’t think I could go back now that I’ve had properly whisked matcha! :)


agh, even that is beyond my budget, for the moment. Dentist bills, and bridesmaid duties have taken up my tea budget for a few months. Well, I know what’ll be on my christmas wish list!


I LOVE watching the tea baristas make matcha… it can put me in a trance if I’m not careful haha

I’ve often found the more affordable matchas to be too bitter and strong for my taste, would you say this isn’t bitter?


I dont find it to be very bitter at all, but I’m not using it for koicha or anything. I’d say it’s rather smooth!

Wow…. It’s been like…. a whole month since i last drank this… unless i am missing something.
had two bowls today.
first- 1 tsp matcha, 4oz 160* f water, and whisked for about 20-30 seconds. i had trouble getting the whisking motion down today. Kept telling my self “think violin, think violin, think VIOLIN 16th notes at 180, think violin 16th NOTES at 180…” so i over whisked this one. some how i had a few lumps in it and it was slightly unpleasantly bitter. not the usual faint bitterness, it was just matcha, umami, sweetness, and POW BiTtEr. after tastes was actually a little better than the tea it’s self.
second- got the whisk motion down, whisked about 10-15 seconds. the usual 1 tsp and 4oz water though i didn’t measure the temp but it felt warmer than the last bowl. much sweeter, back to the usual faint bitterness that isn’t really bitterness that also isn’t really there but it is there. this tea confuses me. It’s very sweet (when i get lumps they taste like tea and powdered sugar), a nice umami taste (that rivals my theanine and sugar chewables i have), and only a pleasant hint of bitterness (thats not really bitter…), and as far as i can tell no astringency! It has a rich almost “sweet tea” flavor with a brothy soup aspect. and then that wonderful wonderful velvet texture. ahhhhhhhhh. i wish i had been brave and tried this tea years ago. I thought i would hate it but it turns out i just love it! it’s been 20 minutes and it still have a faint aftertaste. I don’t want to eat anything. i just want this flavor to last a little longer.

This is a nice matcha, and at a very good price. I found it to be mild, and rather smooth and /or creamy. Although I am not fan of matcha, this one is going down OK with me.

I used 2 good-sized (but not heaping) chasakus of matcha, in 1/4 cup of 80 deg. water, whisking for about 15-30 sec.

Sipdown no. 14 of 2019 (no. 502 total).

This became my latest take it to work tea through the magic of the shake in the thermos method.

I hit upon 100 shakes as the perfect number. With 100 shakes, I never got any clumps.

Also key: don’t put in too much water. You need room to shake!

Trying to decide on my next take it to work tea. I might go with a sencha teabag from Harney tomorrow if I haven’t figured it out yet.

My first matcha after my fiancee ordered a chawan, chasen, and chashaku for Christmas. I’ve had this about 3 times now, the first 2 times unsifted. The 3rd time I was able to work up a light but thick froth that made the experience quite enjoyable. I think this is an appropriate beginner’s matcha. The flavor profile is slightly sweet with an underlying earthiness you would expect from green tea. It is not overly complex and really helps to bring you into matcha.

around $8 for a little can makes this a fairly cheap matcha and the first i’ve bought in bulk. Decent, not great. Inexpensive, sure, but I only seem to enjoy it with added soymilk. Sweeten with honey or agave nectar.

This really is the last of this now! Still preferring it slightly to the organic Kaoru, but don’t think I have the parameters quite right for that one yet.
