At first I wasn't sure about what to think about this particular matcha. It's a lovely deep green like any good quality matcha, but you'll find that the particles are quite large for a matcha. Normal culinary grade matcha has even smaller particles than this; you can see these if you mix it in with something. It obviously will sink down when made into tea fairly quickly. I've had matcha in many things, but this one introduced me to a new way to enjoy matcha... Instant iced tea!! No really, it's right on the back of the package! Just grab a bottle of water and put some in, close it, and shake! I was so curious about the size of the particles but it turns out (after I experimented with some other matcha in cold water in the same bottle) that it resists caking when you add it to cold water, but the "leaf juice" absorbs just as quickly into the water as a normal matcha. In the time it takes for you to shake it for 5 or 10 seconds (yes, that fast for real!) it's absorbed enough to drink. The only downside is that you might need to shake it a few times to stir it up over time, but it's really good. I enjoy it so much, I wonder why they even show a picture of hot matcha on the cover!

I have long wanted to try the matcha and finally I've got. Despite that the pack seems very small, it is enough for a long time. Quality is exellent and I highly recommended it! But note that this tea has a slightly bitter taste.
Fast shipping, product just as described, excellent quality... I really liked it and I recommend it to everyone =D
