I opened the package and hello! A beautiful Matcha green colour. It almost looks like a pudding.
I scoop it up, wow it looks so rich!
The Matcha flavour is very rich and it has the perfect amount of bitterness as well. It has such a nice aroma to it and once it went into my mouth, it melted on my tongue.
I highly recommend this desert, the quality is excellent.
