    I’ve been on a mission for almost 2 years to find the best tasting matcha tea and this is it. I’ve tried all different brands, (always sticking to ceremonial quality) and I haven’t found any that taste better than this. From the nice bright color, the finely ground consistency that’s less clumpy than other brands, to the fresh, crisp, clean taste, you can’t do any better than this one. It is a little pricey compared to other brands, but it’s organic and it’s definitely worth it. I usually drink mine with a little honey, but the flavor of this one is nice enough that it also tastes great on it’s own. Love this tea!!

    I bought this because I couldn’t find a matcha latte when most places were closed during COVID-19. I’m really glad I did! It’s a really delicious matcha tea! I drink it as a latte, and I can taste the rich earthiness. I don’t have to go out for my latte now

    I am new on the matcha world and after read a lot I decided to buy this brand for all the good reviews and I really like the smooth green tea taste, sometimes I use milk to do it latte and is still delicious. Can’t wait to visit the store in Kyoto

    I’m a matcha snob, I’ve tried it all from every coffee shop and online store. I discovered Senbird in NY and I’ll never go back. It’s ceremonial grade so naturally sweet, smooth and also has a little bite. VERY green in color which means high quality. I LOVE how it comes in the beautiful tin — this is hard to find with matcha and I drink a lot of it so it’s a great value for the size and quality you get. I froth it up in an electronic milk frother with a little water to heat it, followed by frothed oat milk and it’s the perfect hot drink.

    This is a great matcha with a rich taste. I always look forward to drinking this matcha and sometimes even drink it twice a day, as koicha or a matcha latte.

    Every once in a while you will stumble across a product such as this that makes eager to share with others. Although I hate to be taken in by beautiful packaging, since it can distract from the quality of the product inside, I have to admit these powdered green teas are amazing. I bought a bunch, and used it for teacher gifts and for hostess gifts where a bottle of wine wouldn’t necessarily be appropriate.

    We’ve been using Otome for a year now at our cafe in San Francisco Bay Area. Excellent quality, really potent and smooth to use as a latte base, stand-alone or matcha based products. Very well received by our customers!

    I love this matcha as it is so vibrant and very smooth, it makes a delicious and creamy matcha latte and the tin keeps the powder very fresh. The best range of matcha I have tried!

    It gets me going in the morning but without any of the jitterness like from coffee. It has a strong rich flavor. The benefits are amazing. I have replaced this with my morning coffee which is rare because usually if I don’t have coffee then I get a major headache. It has been a joy drinking this. I make a matcha latte. It tastes divine! It tastes like I’m cheating with a lot of calories but you’re not.
