It was neat to see the froth on it, and to drink from a large bowl instead of a cup. I had seen folks on Steepster going on about matcha and decided to try it. It was a thicker green tea to me, nothing amazing or special. It had no bitterness and was a sweeter green tea drink. Although I enjoy matcha ice cream and other things I don't think I'll go out of my way to have matcha tea again.

Sorry I did not get images.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep: you can't resteep matcha as it is made from ground leaves.
