Johnny Matcha's "S" matcha is so smooth and fresh tasting! I drink it every morning in a coconut milk, ice frap-like blend. I love the way it energies me. I feel awake and ready to go, but I'm also chill, and focused, not antsy. Probably, because it's so nutritious, im not craving my usual junk foods which has helped me to lose 40 lbs. I would highly recommend trying any of the Matcha blends and see what works for you. I know "S" Matcha is mine.
