Yes, Den's matcha is very enjoyable, lots of cocoa nuances. Zencha Yame matcha is also quite nice. O-Cha has a pretty broad price range with a lot of offerings.

I prefer Matcha from Maiko, I tried them all sorted by price in ascending order, lately i reached the top of the matchas, the Kotobuki, and after i finished it i go back to the matsu no midori for my daily matcha routine, but all the matchas are quite good.
matcha newbies can grab the low priced version for beginning, unconsidered.

Sorry for bad english, i am from germany and try hardly to improve it

greetings

Noah

Most sellers have organic options these days ... and they do not blackball our members for comments made on TeaChat as yuuki-cha has done.

I do not consider this a personal problem, quite the contrary. I will only comment further on my experience.

I will respond in the vendor's topic.

if you have facts that yuuki-cha "blackball our members for comments made on TeaChat", do share. So far I have not seen anything like it stated on the forum so I am not aware yet.

Gosh! What a cruel story you've been experiencing Chip. Really a shame vendors can't deal with critism. In the long run it strikes back on the vendor I think. Makes me feel like navigating towards e.g. ryu-mei or o-cha next time buying outside the eupean market. The vendor should definately get this out of the world and give you an apology :!: That would be good KARMA :D
