I decided to make my weekly tea tasting note on this matcha tea again, because it has really grown on me. I made this tea in the early morning this time (7 AM), and I found that it gave me a lot of energy. I felt like I had drank a cup of coffee, but it was matcha tea instead! I am typically someone who really struggles in the morning, but this tea made me a lot more excited and energized to start my day. I made this tea iced again, like I have previously done. I have found that I prefer matcha iced. I was thinking about using this tea for my ceremony, but I ended up choosing to not do so because of the tea making process. I wanted to use a tea that would be steeped rather than whisked, just for ceremonial purposes. I really do enjoy the matcha tea making process, though, as I have found that it is really relaxing and gives me a time to reflect on the day ahead of me. This taste again was earthy, but I have found that I actually really enjoy this taste. I think it just took a bit of time to grow on me.
