This is a Culinary grade Matcha from Taiwan. It is a very good tea for everyday mixing and drinking. It is also perfect as an ingredient for baking and cooking. When compared to our 2 other Matchas (Matcha Green and Matcha Samidori), this culinary grade Matcha has more astringency and has a paler green color. However, once sweetener and/or dairy is added, the difference in taste between our 3 Matchas become less noticeable. We would recommend using this Matcha for mixing drinks and cooking.
Grade: Culinary Powdered Green Tea (Sencha Base)
