8 Tasting Notes
I used to drink a lot of Matcha, but lately not so much. I think my switch to Organic about a year ago has done me in. I tried some non-organic on a whim today and loved it. As soon as I got home, I tried my DO Matcha organic, and it just isn’t as good. Super vegetal without any of the natural sweetness, not to mention a bit too bitter.
Another one of my favorite teas. I keep exploring other greens then coming back to White Monkey Paw (Bai Mao Hou). I like to see if there’s any greens that I could possibly like more, but White Monkey Paw has a smoothness that seems to be innate and just not duplicated by other green prep methods. I’ve had the White Monkey at Adagio which was excellent as well, but I’m not sure if it’s the original source or what, but the White Monkey Paw from California Tea House is by far my favorite.
