I wonder if other people have "one of those teas" which they absolutely love it when they just recently got it on hand, but once you get towards the end of the supply you are left being glad its finished. On top of just being glad its finished, you think to yourself "I have no need to replace that any time soon."
If you can tell by the picture Matcha is "one of those teas" for me. Every time I get an order in with matcha, I find it incredibly delicious, but by the time I finish one 40 gram tin, I feel no real need to replace it. In fact contrary to others I know that love matcha and drink it as a daily item. I'd rather have Sencha or Gyokuro on hand than matcha.
In fact if someone poured over my tea orders, while I order Japanese teas anywhere from 2-5 times a year, and I am not sure I have ever ordered matcha more than twice in one year. In fact most years I have a 8-10 month Matcha drought.
Do any of you have "one of those teas?" If yes, what tea is it?
