First Harvest Tea Ceremonial Matcha comes in a resealable foil packet. The matcha is from Shizuoka, Japan. When opening, I noticed it has a bright green color, slightly lighter in color than some other ceremonial organic matchas I’ve tried. The matcha has a pleasant smell reminiscent of fresh grass. After whisking, the matcha gets a nice froth and has a creamy body. The flavor is creamy and smooth on the front and a hint of bitter flavor on the finish. Overall, I like this organic matcha. It has a balanced, simple and creamy flavor that makes it a nice choice as an everyday matcha.
