La creme de la creme We're going to let you in on a little secret: you are in for a serious treat. This bright green, extra-fine matcha is one of the highest grades available, and it's an absolute labour of love. To make it, every vein is painstakingly removed from the tea leaves, which are then stone ground into a super fine powder that whisks into an impossibly creamy brew. Delicately smooth and velvety, with a refreshing green "tea leaf" character, its flavour is totally sublime. (MK Kosher)
This was my second matcha, and I am so glad I went for it. I have two bags now, and I've just gotten an electric matcha whisk (arthritis sucks, y'all) so I mean, this tea really sparked my enthusiasm for a new level of tea experience!! If you're looking for a solid, high quality matcha, look no further. It is so creamy, so umami.
