This was my first time making matcha and I was pleasantly surprised that it was not quite as difficult as I had anticipated. I began by boiling my water and letting it cool a little bit, and then followed the directions on my tea canister by putting a tablespoon of matcha powder into a bowl with a little hot water, thoroughly whisking, and then adding the rest of the hot water. I then whisked for about a minute and a half, until a thin foam formed on top. I then poured it into my mug and enjoyed it while looking out my bedroom window, which overlooks a small forest. I noted the color being more grey toned, like an army green, than previous matchas I have tried. The tea didn’t have much of a distinguishing scent, maybe just a slight grassy aromatic. The taste was bright and earthy, with almost citrus like notes. At the beginning of each sip, the flavor was most impactful, mellowing out as it moved across the palate. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would defintely make again!
