I keep trying and wanting to like matcha, sometimes it's good - usually when someone else (a tea shop) makes it for me, but even then not always.

This was OK, I don't think it's the matcha's fault I think it's mine.

Rating: 2/4 leaves

Leaf system:
1=Bleh! not again if it were free
2=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
3=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
4=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
