    Don't know what i was doing wrong, but it was always too bitter. I never added straight boiling water i let it cool first. I might give it another go in the future, it is extremely fresh though. (O-Cha.com staff guess as to what went wrong: pre-heat and dry the bowl. It sounds like your water temp was still too high. Also, matcha is not completely bitter free.)

    Wonderful matcha!! If you are drinking matcha from teavana this will blow it away! Great value introduction to unami flavors for me when brewed at correct temperature!!

    I"m no expert - I had purchased the Supreme before this and I think that has a slightly milder flavor, but this tea is fine - I don't drink it for the taste - I drink it for the health benefits. I can for sure say that I once bought Republic of Tea matcha at Whoel Foods and this tea is much brighter in color and flavor.

    A very nice, simple matcha. It is characteristically sweet with only a subtle amount of astringency/umami to it. I've found the best water temperature for this particular matcha to be around 160F-165F. Getting above 170F left the overall palate fairly bitter. I would definitely recommend this product as a great introduction to matcha but only as a starting point to explore the more delicate and complex matchas. Advantages: -Great introduction to matcha -Reasonable pricing -Sweet character that may be more accessible for new matcha drinkers/non-tea drinkers -Clean finish  Disadvantages: -Very sensitive to temperature -Not as complex as other more expensive matcha

    I seem to have a completely different view of this matcha as compared to the other people who have reviewed it. While not a bad matcha, I did not find it very exciting at all. This was my first organic matcha and I found it to be fairly harsh no matter what temperature I made it at. The lower temperatures around 160-170 F were less bitter but still not great. I have had other matcha from O-cha which I liked much better. My next one will definitely be the organic supreme that they carry. Hope it is better.

    The Organic Matcha Kaoru is a smooth, mellow, creamy and slightly sweet product. No bitter aftertaste. Highly commendable !

    I wanted to check that the Kaoru is still kosher?
    Thanks!

    It is the same exact matcha which was previously certified kosher, however, it was extremely expensive to have it certified so the producer quit doing that unfortunately.
