It's now well over a year since my tea journey started, and my knowledge of Chinese tea has grown exponentially, and there is still sooooo much more to learn. However, I'm feeling a little break from the norm is in order.
I only branched into the Japanese tea world a few months ago with some basic teaware from O-Cha, and some of their medium and premium quality sencha/gyokuro. I tried my hand at some shincha this spring, and I love the stuff. But now I want something entirely new, and I think matcha is unique enough for this purpose!
So, I'm looking for some good grade, but not ridiculously expensive matcha, along with the general utensils. I have a taste for tea, so I don't really see the point in getting some low grade tea that even when brewed to the best of anyone's ability, is not fantastic. I have my eye on the O-Cha matcha starter kit because it has the important utensils, and I love their sencha and gyokuro. So would those of you experienced in the matcha world be kind enough to recommend a good quality matcha from their selection, that isn't awfully hard to brew, but will be nice when brewed well? Something I can practice with, and get a good reward for doing well
Thank's a million!
