organic ceremonial super premium matcha tea

so I bought this tea on amazon over a year ago and I've been aching to try it.
the bf really likes green tea so I wanted to try it with him.
and, for christmas, I got a matcha bowl.  (I purchased a milk frother when I bought the matcha)

1) the matcha has expired
2) my thermometer did not properly read the temp of the water (too shallow)
3) I used a matcha "spoon" but just guesstimating how much matcha I used

round 1:

steep time: n/a
steep temp: unknown (aiming for warm, though.  water wasn't boiling and let it cool for a few mins)
added: n/a

it was fucking horrid y'all.
smelled strongly of seaweed.
so fucking gross.
after we both tried it I dumped the rest down the drain

round 2:

steep time: n/a
steep temp: unknown (aiming for cool, though.  water straight out the fridge filter)
added: n/a

I used less match and a lot more water, and this round isn't ~bad~ but I still don't like it.
tastes like green tea that's been steeped too warm...  bit of a bite too it.
I think this is probably because it's old.

gonna try some that's been recommended on r/tea.
for now, I'm gonna toss the rest of this container.

also, pics of the matcha and the container:
