ujihikarimacchaMy matcha experiences so far have been mid to low quality blends. The drinking experiences were all downplayed by the frustrating preparation: enthusiastic whisking followed by a frantic attempt to drink the green liquid before the pivotal froth quickly disappeared. It has been an interesting journey, but hardly moving.

I figured there had to be a reason people would be willing to pat $0.50 and more per gram for quality matchas, so I was excited to try out this beauty. Hot water in a preheated bowl met brilliantly with my matcha whisk, quickly frothing up. I let it sit for awhile and quickly noticed what a difference quality can make - the froth remained, allowing me to take my time in sipping and appreciating the delicate liquid.

And appreciate I did. This tea is so smooth and flavourful and above all, moving. I felt myself being transported to a world of silk robes and geishas. This tea is more than a drink - it's an experience. Unfortunately, it's not an experience most of us can afford very often, but when you can, it's worth every penny, and it is something to share.
