I tried this matcha when I visited tokyo several years ago and have been waiting for it to finally be available in the US due to shipping cost. This is the best matcha I've had and it's already blended with sugar that's not too sweet and not too bitter. Perfect for blending with ice, or just trying in hot water.
Really happy I found this mix of matcha and sugar, its a perfect ratio too.
I love this product and use it to make cafe-style matcha lattes. It's sweet but not overwhelmingly so--if I were ordering this at a boba shop, I'd expect this to be at 50-75% sweet (depending on the shop). Sometimes I'll mix extra matcha in it (for more caffeine) but this product stands well on its own. I started off with the travel packets but loved it so much that I upgraded to the bag. Highly recommend, especially for matcha newbies who might not be used to the taste of unsweetened matcha yet.
I first bought this tea while in Japan and loved it. I was happy to see that I was able to order online when I ran out. Thank you so much!
The sugar in this product is very finely powdered in order to mix well with the matcha, I suppose, so the drink can end up being too sweet depending on the table spoon used. Nevertheless, this is easily adjustable.
It's very practical for matcha-lattes because there is no need to strain the matcha powder; it dissolves very well without forming clumps. It is great in fruit drinks as well.
