HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!
And what better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than with a bowl of Matcha? Well, I suppose since it IS an Irish holiday, a cup of Irish Breakfast might do nicely, or, perhaps a plate of corned beef and cabbage, but that is something I DO NOT eat for reasons that I do not wish to discuss. (Horrifying memories from my childhood, let’s just leave it at that)
So, I guess there are really more appropriate ways to celebrate St. Patty’s Day, but, Matcha works for me.
This is really a beautiful Matcha. It is bright green, and froths up nicely. I like that the froth remains until I’ve finished the bowl … and I also like that the Matcha stays mixed until I reached the bottom of the bowl.
The flavor is outstanding. With most Matcha teas, even the ones that I consider to be top-notch, I’ve experienced a hint of bitterness to the cup. Usually this is just a savory bitterness that I find to be quite palatable and actually nice to help offset some of the sweetness. But with this Matcha, I noticed no bitterness at all. And I didn’t miss it – not at all.
This Matcha has such a pleasant sweetness – it isn’t overwhelming or cloyingly sweet, but it is mildly sweet with a mellow vegetal tone. Delicious buttery taste to it with a smoothness to match. It is rich and thick and very delicious.
If you’re a Matcha fan, you really MUST try Matcha from Pure Matcha. It is certainly one of the best that I’ve tried.
