I’m a big fan of Kirkland products, and I enjoy other ito en tea, so you can imagine I was pretty excited when I say this huge box just waiting for me to throw it in the cart.
It’s not bad, but it’s far too weak. It’s odd too, because I can see the tea in there. It’s getting wet and it’s in my cup, but at 30 seconds (as they recommend for the first steep) I can barely taste it. They also recommend dumping in the remaining matcha from the outside wrapper—there really isn’t any.
I feel like the packaging was designed for some long lost age when this tea was flavorful and complex. It’s not. It’s a cheap and weak green tea that I don’t regret buying per se (cheap and not necessarily offensive), but I don’t particularly look forward to drinking.
