Usucha Style Ceremonial Matcha
This Matcha is mind blowing great! Each time I have a cup I’m as shocked as the first time with how intense the flavors are while not leaving any bitter aftertaste. The description fits it perfectly and this will absolutely be a tea I always have on hand. Thank you for introducing me to what Matcha can taste like when it’s done perfectly!
Wow... the quality of this matcha is insane. I've never tried matcha so naturally sweet! Making matcha at home has always really intimidated me, but the clear directions on the packaging made this really fun and simple to make. It doesn't need anything added to it, the flavor is so pure and just straight up GOOD. I recommended it to several friends as I was drinking it, realizing it was the best I'd ever bought. I also love the way that Southern Record is working with independent Japanese farmers - it makes me think of their story each time I drink one of the teas. Buy this!
