My kappa matcha tea review based on this matcha from Japan. My sister gave it to me last year. It is a different matcha. It has a roasted smell when you open it. I expected the same smell just like the others. I was so surprised.
I took some photos of the product packaging. Also my drink. Yay! This is the second time my sister brought me another kind of matcha. I was excited to check if this is the same match she purchased last Christmas. The next thing I did was to make my usual drink. This time I have my whisk with me. I served two teaspoons of powder in my bowl. Pour in a little bit of hot water then whisk it. While whisking it, nutty smell of the steam evaporates. I check the color its dark green. Pretty good for a matcha tea.
I tasted my tea. All good. It is very rich, nutty and has a roasted smell. I would say not all matcha are created equal. My sister’s fiancée told me before that every tea house in Japan has their own flavors. That’s a fact. I thought they were all the same. It’s not.
Do not expect that the matcha manufactured from Japan have the same standards, flavor, and quality to it. I would say the best ones are created by the monks. The first matcha she brought for me was created by the monks.
Overall, I would rate this 8/10 for flavor and texture. For the color and smell, it’s 9/10. The packaging is cute and in Japanese. So it’s hard for me to understand it. At the back, they provided a large site information which is great for you to buy their matcha tea online. You can check the site online and see what else they offer.
