This ceremonial matcha begins with a strong, sharp vegetal flavor and then is rounded out by these more citrusy and floral notes. If you like a matcha that has a bit more strength to it, this would be a good choice. This matcha lacks the roundness you may find in an Okumidori matcha, but it has that strong grassy and vegetal flavor that the Okumidori matchas do not have.
