I haven't had it in ages and just noticed on Steepster that there is a fancy matcha from a company called PureMatcha that looks pretty tasty. Reviews were great and it looks pretty fun. There is a cool preparation method too, you can get this crazy bamboo whisk and that's the usual method for stirring it. When you stir it in such a way, it often foams up. I guess they must use a lower grade version of this for stuff like Green Tea Frappucinos at Starbucks. Anyhow, this looks pretty good and I think I'm gonna try it at some point. Maybe I should start with a cheaper one first from Japantown, but I'd love to get the tea preparation equipment too.
Maaan this bamboo whisk looks so friggin' badass!!!! Yes. "I want to go to there."
