Matcha is fun to experiment with and Matcha Sendo from Camellia Sinensis is no exception!
I tried a 2nd test right after the first attempt because I was missing the dark chocolate aroma the first time around.
I used 3 tsp for the first cup and it was in a standard size mug. I could pick up on the berry notes in the aroma tho.
As for the taste…it’s mellow but marvelous! I could taste the artichoke comparison mentioned in the product description but I was picking up on fruit like tones too! I really like this! REALLY like this!
For my 2nd attempt I used 5tsp of matcha powder.
The dark chocolate aroma isn’t loud but it is there. Oddly…if I try and smell it with my nose right up to the mug I can’t really pick it out but if you take a step back I can smell it.
As for the taste with this much powder it is very vegetal and grassy. Still pretty yummy but I like the fruity notes I tasted in the first attempt better so I think I will stick with the 3 tsp.
Regardless from one attempt to another I stand firm in giving this Matcha Sendo middle 90′s rating! It’s really Marvelous!
