I have been drinking so much flavored Matcha that I’ve almost forgotten what pure, premium quality Matcha tastes like! Haha!
No, not really. But, I must admit that drinking this KaiMatcha Premium Matcha has reminded me what the higher quality of Matcha deliver, including a stronger, thicker froth, brighter green color, and sweeter, creamier taste.
And OH this tastes so good! It is thick and creamy, and it doesn’t taste at all gritty or chalky. Not even in the aftertaste. Just smooth, rich flavor.
The flavor here is – of course – vegetative, but, it is quite different from some of the lesser quality matcha I’ve tasted. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love those other Matcha too, and you know how much I’ve been drinking and swearing by all the flavored Matcha I’ve been drinking, but, sometimes, it’s just incredibly awesome to get back to some really good, pure Matcha. And it doesn’t get better than this.
The vegetal tones here are very mellow, like buttered, mild tasting veggies with just a hint of grass. There is absolutely no bitterness to this … not even a bittersweet taste. It’s just all sweet. And the sweetness lingers on the palate into the aftertaste. As does the creamy, buttery undertones. And this tea is RICH with the buttery notes.
But what I like best about this is how it takes the palate on an adventure. Sometimes, I taste just a hint of cocoa in the distance. And then, every once in a while, I taste a floral note. I notice a fruity tone sort of appear every now and then. None of these notes stay around long enough for me to really pinpoint them, they just sort of appear for a moment, dance on the tongue, and then disappear. It adds a really lovely element to the overall experience.
If you’re looking for the best high-quality Matcha … you really need look no further than this: KaiMatcha Premium. It is one of the very best I’ve tried. And as you know, I’ve tried a lot of Matcha. Sure, I’ve enjoyed others. And I can’t say that this one is better than all of the others that I’ve tried because I’m not tasting them side by side. But, I can say with complete confidence that this one deserves a top spot … and if it’s not number one, then it is in the top three. It is EXCELLENT!
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!
