Before this I had had Matcha produced by one other brand which also sold organic Matcha tea but this came from China. The teas feel pretty similar but The Tao of Tea one tastes perhaps slightly better meaning a gentler and not so bitter taste. Obviously, you&amp;#39;re not going to like Matcha if you&amp;#39;re expecting the usual teabag taste experience here since this is much stronger stuff. The Matcha made by The Tao of Tea is also a bit more affordable for me so the choice was clear. The packaging is also better with a sealable bag that doesn&amp;#39;t spread the tea everywhere. I don&amp;#39;t think I ever found a recommended serving size but I&amp;#39;m using a teaspoonful/cup. I&amp;#39;m not giving this five stars because I&amp;#39;m not that well-versed in analyzing qualities of Matcha tea but I have no complaints, though obviously the price could be even more affordable in my eyes, but as I understand it&amp;#39;s a highly demanded product in Japan and there isn&amp;#39;t always that much to sell abroad cheaply.
