I'll be ranking the matcha I've tried in episodes one to four of the Taste Test series. My ranking system has five tiers. At the bottom is "Avoid at All Costs" for matcha brands I strongly discourage. Above that is "Don't Recommend," which is for brands that are not the worst but still not great. Then we have "Not the Worst, Not the Best" for matcha that I wouldn't buy, but it's not terrible. Next is "Matcha Mommy Approved," for brands I actually enjoy and would spend my money on. Finally, there's "Almost Too Good" for matcha that's a bit too premium for everyday use.
These rankings are based on my personal taste and preferences, and I'll also consider aspects like branding and the founders of the companies. Please note that these are my subjective opinions, and your own preferences may differ. I'll update these rankings periodically as I continue the Taste Test series.
