I have been buying my matcha from Kenko for a few years now, always great quality tea and excellent customer service. Products arrive beautifully presented and in good time, (even in lockdown!). Bravo Kenko!
I am so happy with my purchase! The bamboo whisk is very sturdy, and the holder is super convenient. I love the bowl that I got with my purchase too. It's the perfect size for a latte or made the traditional way. Really good packaging and clear instructions came with it. I will definitely be buying the matcha itself again, it's so smooth and tasty!
