Matcha Tea-Tasting Results (each cup had 1/4TSP Matcha+2oz Western Family Demineralized Water@68°C for each cup, and 1oz shot of warm honey-lemon-ginger tea from fresh ingredients as palate cleanser):
1) 6th Place, Tea Palace-Generic/Organic, $25/100g=$0.25/g, Flavour=2/5 Grit=5/5 Bitter=5/5
2) 4th Place (1st Place in Bang-for-Buck), O-Cha-Kaoru Supreme/Organic, $31/30g=$1.05/g, Flavour=3/5 Grit=4/5 Bitter=3/5
3) 5th Place, Jagasilk-Matcha Owl, $25/20g=$1.25/g, Flavour=3/5 Grit=3/5 Bitter=4/5
4) 3rd Place, Jagasilk-Matcha Eagle, $45/20g=$2.25/g, Flavour=3/5 Grit=3/5 Bitter=3/5
5) 1st Place, O-Cha-Uji Matcha Manten, $54/20g=$2.70/g, Flavour=5/5 Grit=1/5 Bitter=1/5
6) 2nd Place, O-Cha-Uji Matcha Taiko-San, $59/20g=$2.95/g, Flavour=5/5 Grit=1/5 Bitter=2/5, all judges agreed the bitterness resulted in a more "full bodied" Matcha taste but bitterness isn't something most were willing to reward

Advantages: Decent flavor and low-bitterness for a very competitively-priced matcha

Disadvantages: Quite gritty

(Note: The staff at O-Cha.com disagree with the statement that this tea is in any way 'gritty', however we respect the customer's opinion and will let the review stand)

I've been a fan of Kaoru matcha for a while now, but mostly the less pricey stuff. Either their cheapest one or their second cheapest one, which is the regular organic stuff. But this premium matcha is in another league entirely. The cheaper stuff takes longer to froth up and usually has quite a few larger air bubbles when I'm done. I usually have to spend more time whisking to pop the larger bubbles. With this premium matcha, there's very few larger bubbles when I'm done. It's also much frothier and much creamier when drinking. The taste is nice and not off-putting like some of the cheaper ones I've tried, nor is it overpowering. It's just right for my tastes. It's too bad I can never afford the $50 matcha here as it's probably even better, but I'll definitely be purchasing this premium one again.

Advantages: Frothier, creamier, and easier to whisk than any matcha under $30.

Disadvantages: Maybe the price is a little high? But it's still worth every penny/yen.

I can't imagine there is a difference in a way green tea is grown in japan, whether it has 'bio' label or not. The difference is that this manufacturer was willing to spend money for a certificate, the result is more expensive production and then expenses are probably shared with the buyers. In my opinion - marketing gimmick, adds to the price, not to taste or quality.
About this matcha - I tried it after I finished my can of Uji Matcha Taiko-San so I might not be too objective, but I feel I would always find it a little bit too bitter for my liking. Other then that, this matcha tastes like highest grade matcha with strong umami, again small catch is bitterness that some will notice and some will not. All in all, excellent matcha.
