Review I placed an order for the Organic Matcha refill size as well as a small canister of the Super Premium Matcha and some Gyokuro. My order was processed and shipped promptly with confirmation correspondence. I was also able to track the progress online from point of origin to my home. Great, timely service, arriving as expected via tracking info in just 5 days! The items were carefully packaged with delightful wrapping and additional information about the product and preparation recommendations. Of course, I immediately opened the organic matcha, expecting a mid grade casual afternoon type tea. I was pleasantly surprised, it was mellow, yet full flavored, exceeding my expectations. After a full week of enjoying the Organic Matcha, I felt I had worked up to a Sunday special treat. I cracked open the top on the Super Premium Matcha. Inside the canister was a splendid, vibrant green powder, with a delightfully fresh aroma. It frothed up beautifully with a thick, vibrant green. The powder is exceptionally fine and velvety as is the mouth feel of this delicious tea. Very full bodied, with as pleasant sweet, earthy freshness. Lingering long after I complete my cup is the flavor of this extraordinary tea. The tea powder remained suspended in the liquor til the last drop. I cannot say that of the Organic Matcha. It is not quiet so luxurious as it tends to settle more leaving a thick paste at the bottom. That is not to say the Organic Matcha is bad, but rather that the Super Premium, simply put, is superior, and well worth the additional cost.

I'll get to the Gyokuro later, but, : ) another wonderful product!

Thank You Hibiki-an
