This vibrantly green Matcha is one for those who prefer a more savory tea over a grassy or sweet one. The aroma starts with notes of crisp bell peppers and a gentle sweetness, with a slight finish of okra, adding water and whisking it brings out stronger vegetal notes and a hint of kelp and nutty sesame seeds. It smells very fresh, and the foam once whisked is a lovely spring green.
The taste of this Matcha is a perfect blend between savory and sweet, starting with notes of toasted seaweed (Nori) and cooked bell peppers, and then fading to creamy sweetness of sesame seeds. With a gentle bitter kale finish, this is a robust Matcha suitable for waking up with.
