OK, most people would not find this interesting, but I knew everyone here would. Today I tried matcha for the first time. Pics attached.

Thanks for sharing your very first matcha with us. :mrgreen:

What is the matcha and how did you manage to "make it?"

I bought at "starter" chasen/matcha set from Matcha and More.com. 20g of Koyama-en Shouhaku usucha/thin tea and a bamboo tea whisk. I can see where this could be VERY addictive.

So far.. I've had 3 and have quickly learned... do not drink right before bed time... :mrgreen:

Some Yokan or other Japanese confectionery is a perfect match before you sip it.

I highly recommend getting Matcha from Uji if you are shopping for a new batch.

Lastly, Matcha is liquid meditation. Remember to take a deep breath before the first sip. Let it sink in. Bask in the wave of holy caffeine. :mrgreen:
