The 5-Way Matcha Tasteoff

I recently got a pretty delightful email that I can’t help sharing. It was from Tynan, with whom I sipped matcha in his incredible RV several months back.

Tynan and the ever-inspiring¬†Leo Babauta (I also had the chance to sit down with Leo and talk about flow and productivity over matcha). and Leo’s wife Eva, did ¬†5-way double-blind tasting of Blends 100, 99, 97, and two matcha that they picked up in Uji on a recent trip there. Without conferring before deciding favorites, they all picked 99, 97, and 100 in that order. Wow. My kind of afternoon experiment!
