Hi, Uji Hakari Matcha tea, how it is differ from different type of matcha. With the bitter taste of matcha tea is there a way to make it taste better?

Thank you, Ian, for your lovely guide to Japanese tea! I have been steeping and drinking your tea for a year now, and am so happy to learn more about it! Will begin putting your guidance to work this morning with some Gyokuro. Thanks again! Julie
