GenkiMatchalogoAt this point, Genki Matcha has only one tea, this signature matcha. The powder is a beautiful forest green colour. I sift it, add water, and whisk away. It froths up extremely well, with the bubbles covering the entire surface of the tea and not dissipating quickly.

It smells like hay and grass, but the flavour is more grassy than anything else. There's none of the brilliant sweetness that I search for in quality matchas, but there's none of the telltale bitterness or astringency you find in cheap matchas. It has a bright, acidic finish, but it doesn't leave my mouth feeling dry. The aftertaste has a nice hit of vegetal flavour and leaves a lingering umami flavour on my tongue.

Overall, the lack of sweetness or buttery flavour means this isn't my favourite matcha, but I don't really have any big complaints about it, either. It's an interesting profile for a matcha, and while it doesn't hit the notes I prefer, it's a quality tea.
