From Matcha Outlet

This Matcha, from Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan, is the very embodiment of spring. Its coloring is a rich, pale green that transfers from the powder to the foaming cup full. The aroma is the epitome of spring, it has a clean dewy grass aroma with sweet notes of newly opened flowers and sweet hay. It very much so has that ‘new growth’ aroma you expect in early spring. Once the Matcha has been whisked, the aroma goes from early to late spring with clear notes of honeysuckle, fresh grass, and a touch of creaminess.

Summing this Matcha up in one word: refreshing, but who wants a one word description? It starts off with a very subtle sweetness before it transfers to a robust vegetal and grassy taste. There is very little bitterness, just clean, rich vegetation taste. At the finish of the sip there is a hint of nuttiness and sweetness that lingers as an aftertaste.

The company was formarly known as “Red Leaf Tea”, but is now known as “Matcha Outlet.”

Green March! This is the only matcha in my collection; I ordered it from Matcha Outlet, but from what I can tell, they used to be Red Leaf Tea. I don’t have any “proper” matcha gear yet (I finally ordered some today with my b-day funds!) so I’ve just been frothing it up in my milk frother (eh, it gets the job done in a pinch). I like it latte-style, so usually I froth the matcha up in a bit of water first, move it to a mug, and then froth up the milk and add it second.

The matcha is quite thick, rich, and very grassy in flavor! I find that it has some sweeter floral notes just beneath the grassy taste, and a very subtle fruitiness, with a bit of a vegetal astringency on the finish. When prepared as a latte, the almond milk removes that astringent bite on the finish, and brings out more of the sweetness in the cup, as well as adds a lovely creaminess, and since the grassy flavor is very rich and strong, it holds up well through the almond milk.

This was a beautiful, rich creamy green cup on a rainy St. Pattie’s Day!

(For the record, this matcha also makes a delicious pumpkin spice latte during the winter months, too!)

I only have a whisk myself. Do you use an electric hand frother?

Mastress Alita

It’s an electric milk frother, but it’s stationary and has an option to heat the milk as it froths inside the canister (there is also an option to not heat as well, if you want to froth cold milk). When I use it for matcha, I typically heat the water to the temperature I want in my kettle (since the frother uses a certain temperature for milk) and just use the “cold froth” function just to mix up the matcha and water. Then I move the matcha to a mug, and then do a “warm froth” of the milk to heat and froth the milk at the same time. You can also remove the frothing coil attachment from it to just heat up milk to add to tea, or to mix up cocoas. I use it quite a bit!

This is one of the more complex tasting matcha from Red Leaf Tea. The flavor starts sweet and then it gets a little roasty tasting, finishing in more sweetness accompanied by a pretty moderate dose of bitterness. There are sweet bready notes to it and notes of fresh sweet grasses and flowers.

This matcha is pretty good overall. It whisks and foams well, the color is a nice deep emerald green, and the flavor is not dull or uninteresting. The one downside of it to me is the bitterness which lingers on your tongue for a while after the sip, but oddly there is a sweetness that lingers there too, so the flavor is two-fold.

I’d say it’s a good brisk wake-me-up matcha for people who like a stronger beverage. I tend to stray from bitter flavors though, so I’ll pass on purchasing this one. I will, however, savor the samples I have left. :3
