The consolation of missing a good cup of matcha from Japan is finding something similar from @hvala_sg. Boasting a velvety texture, Yuki, an everyday premium grade matcha delivers a harmonious balance of umami and natural sweetness. The mellow flavor profile encompasses a pleasant bitterness that is neither overpowering nor sharp with medium astringency.

A suggested pairing would be the Goma Slice, where layers of goma (black sesame) sponge and cream imparted a rich, toasty note that danced on the palate. The sweetness of the cake was perfectly balanced, complementing the nutty essence without overwhelming it. Recommended for sharing.
