I had bought the Matcha Sampler, which was great for tasting all the different flavors available, and to my surprise, I found that I liked the original, classic matcha very much. Previously, every time I had matcha it was bitter, but Tea Forte's matcha is very smooth and creamy, if you use the right amount and froth it well. Too much powder gets clumpy and a little bitter, so don't use the same teaspoon amount you would for, say, loose tea leaves. I am thinking of buying the proper whisk and tea ladle to get it right every time. I bought the Yunomi tea cups and measure out oat milk in them to warm up and then add the Pure Matcha powder to whip it up into a latte. I love the ritual of drinking it from these Japanese glass cups. It's my afternoon pick-me-up with just the right amount of caffeine boost too.
I love the ziplock pouch because it stores the matcha so it is fresh for each use. This matcha has a smooth soft palette of flavor with no bitterness. I first made an iced matcha and it was frothy and refreshing. I also like using it to make Green tea ice cream.
