Leaf Type: Green (Matcha)
Where to Buy: Camellia Sinensis
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.
This is such a beautiful Matcha. The color of the powder is so bright green and it produces a gorgeous jade colored liquid that is a bit of heaven in a chawan!
I can detect the notes of berry and chocolate in the aroma, which I find so intriguing. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced an unflavored Matcha with this sort of fragrance. It’s captivating.
The flavor and texture of this tea is very smooth. It coats the palate with its sweet, vegetative flavor. A hint of bitter reveals itself just before the end of the sip. This savory bitterness seems to arrive just in time to cut through the sweetness and provide a little dimension.
I must agree with the above product description: this Matcha does have an artichoke flavor. It is a very broth-y, satisfying Matcha. This is one of the best Matcha teas I’ve tasted, and I would recommend it to all the Matcha fans out there. This is superb!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
