Default Remarkable Surprise

I was given a bag of Kirkland Green Tea from Costco and I was shocked to
find it was actual matcha. Not good matcha; it's not aromatic like the
higher grade stuff, but it definitely has that characteristic flavour.
It's nothing wonderful but it's entirely drinkable which is a lot more
than I was expecting.

These things are actually teabags, with a coarsely ground matcha in them,
as well as with powder outside the bag in the same envelope. The notion
is that you're supposed to put the teabag into the tea to steep and then
add the powder from the same package. It works better than I'd ever have
expected.
