This will be an objective review. I will not provide a scoring because I feel that this matcha has great potential but may have been influenced by outside air for too long. So the coloring is pretty poor. A good matcha color should be emerald green for the ones that are higher quality. If they are being used for cooking or latte (mixing of any sort) then the coloring matters a little less, though I do find a brighter green latte is more desirable than the olive-colored ones, such as is the color of the matcha in front of me cuyrrently. That being said the taste is good. This leads me to believe that at its prime the coloring was better. The astringency is medium with bits of grassiness and slight metallicness. The mouthfeel is also quite smooth with minimal grittiness even in the final sips. This will be one I will want to try fresh for sure but I am also excited to give this one a go in latte form.
