Tasters Review:

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!

    Strange sensations from fruity to dark chocolate or grassy…

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
