I use O-Cha.com exclusively. I regularly use the following ones, which come in 30 gram cans. I think these three are each awesome for the money. You can read customer reviews of them on the O-Cha.com website.
Kira No Mori @ $15.95 (thin type) -
I was very surprised at the high quality for the low dollars that this matcha provided.
Organic Kaoru Supreme @ 34.95 (thin type) -
More than twice the price of the first but this is the best thin type I have tried.
Uji Matcha Manten @ $59.95 (thick type) -
This is the best matcha I have ever had by a very large margin. Expensive, yes, but so is a Lamborghini. Thick style using 4 scoops is still mild, but this can be stretched even further by using it as a thin matcha with 2 scoops. It works great both ways.
