Sublime, irresistably delicious, bright, sweet, succulent, full. I cannot say I have tasted a matcha better than this.
Nice picture. Did you also brew it as koicha?
Not yet, the above pictured is thicker than usucha, but not quite
the level of koicha. Close though. I usually brew matcha in between usucha and koicha, playing around with the temperature/concentration. It's amazing how many different tastes one can get out of a particular type of matcha...
You sir are the man...I was thinking of giving it a try and now you have convinced me...once I get my dens hashiri tea - I am going to go for this one.
I will appreciate you input on two things -
1. How servings of thick tea/thin tea will this provide?
2. How long do you keep this on shelf/refridgerator once you open it?
I mean I know that itoen recommends that this be in a refridgerator for no longer than 3-4 months unopened and no longer than 1 month opened.
3. How does it compare to Matcha-Koto no Tsuki ? I have one can open that I am using right now but would love to experiment.
4. Are you not concerned about the possibility of this having pesticides etc?
5. I know this has been discussed to death - is this good for a everyday use?
