This ia a creamy, sweet and mellow matca. While whisking, the aroma is complex and delightful. Its multilayered with so much umami and a long lingering aftertaste. It has absolutely no bitterness. The consistency is thick and creamy when whisked properly. Even as usucha it still had a full-bodied consistency.
