I like green tea. It’s started when I drank my first green tea latte, after that I started to like any kind of green tea, from green tea leaves to green tea powder or matcha.
To be honest I don’t really care about the quality of the tea until recently. I normally buy green tea leaves from local supermarket. 1 bag of 100 grams lasts forever 😆 I also bought matcha powder long time ago. It was a Chinese matcha, i bought 1 can of 100 grams powder for $3.61, they sent me another can. So practically it was 3 dollars for two cans. I didn’t really like the taste, I seldom drank it and ended up threw it.
A couple days ago I ordered a Japanese Matcha on Taobao. It’s quite expensive compared to the Chinese Matcha. It cost me $8.69 for 40 grams can.
No, it’s not a ceremonial grade matcha (I heard they are really good, I’ve never had one because it’s super expensive 😬).

If you decided to buy green tea (leaves or powder), buy a good quality green tea, don’t do what I did 😬 Happy tea-ing! 🍵🙌🏼
