Where To Buy:
This Matcha has an aroma of berries and dark chocolate. On the palate, you’ll be seduced by the rich and full texture, and the surprising notes of Jerusalem artichokes.
Quantity of leaf / 250ml of water
Infusion temperature 75 °C
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!
