Upon sipping, roll the liquid around the palate to appreciate the full flavor anatomy of the tea.

It's a matcha like no other. I definitely can taste the umami feature after swishing it around in my mouth. It's a bit bitter upon brewing in hot water (which is normal) and I start tasting the caramel feature whenever I make a latte version and it also doesn't taste as bitter (which is normal). Upon drinking it, I definitely feel the benefits of it working. It boost my mood to 110%, I feel very happy for no reason (I'm not complaining), I also feel more relaxed and I get enough energy for the rest of my day. It's a matcha I cannot get enough of. I'm absolutely in love with it.
I was impressed with matsu save for the color, so my expectations for this one are definitely higher. Gorgeous color! Just what I was hoping. That luscious emerald/jade green. Slightly chocolatey aroma. Very soft to the touch. Likewise with the liquid, a serene green appearance. As I poured in more water a unique marine aroma drifted up to my nose. Wish I could explain it but it was gone so quickly. Silky mouth feel. That slightly marine flavor came back again; it's almost fishy in flavor but it comes and goes so quickly. Do not worry though as strange as it is I've only had the sensation a few times in the many sips I've taken. Maybe it's me? Regardless, if you like umami this has a wonderful umami undertone to it. Slightly grassy, no astringency.
The flavour, the colour and the smell were so mesmerising and on point that I ordered another one and received it yesterday. Need I say more?
