I'm a matcha newbie. As a long time green tea drinker, I wanted to try organic matcha for its health benefits. I first purchased a ceremonial grade matcha. Loved it, but as others noted, pretty expensive if you drink it everyday. So I decided to try this culinary grade, based on the reviews. It also has a bright green color, grassy fragrance and taste, not bitter unless you use too much. I just use a kitchen whisk, and whisk, whisk, whisk, back and forth, and I'm happy with the results. Yes, the ceremonial grade seemed smoother and stayed in suspension better, but IMHO, not enough to justify the cost, if you drink a lot of it. I don't care for sweet drinks, so I drink it hot with nothing added, but I found that it's good iced with infused orange and lemon slices for drinking throughout the day. I'm using this matcha as my drink of choice, and keeping the ceremonial grade as a special treat.
I've drank a good bit of matcha. I've had ones that I liked, ones that I did not, and ones that stood out. This falls into that third category. This matcha is very finely ground, and is a very vibrant green on arrival, almost completely un-oxidized, and without the bitter taste that usually accompanies this price range. I would recommend about 3/4 of a teaspoon per 8 oz. if you're drinking it plain, or an entire teaspoon if you're making some sort of latte-type drink. This will be my go-to from here on.
You get a lot of Match tea for the price. I use this in my smoothies. I can't taste any difference when adding a teaspoon. The caffeine gives me a very nice lift, much different than a cup of coffee. The lift lasts for hours and no crash like regular coffee. The caffeine doesn't cause confusion like a strong cup of coffee might, and helps with cognitive functions like boosting mental clarity and a general feeling of well being. It seems to work synergistically with ginseng too. Green Matcha Tea has many health benefits, even cleaning arteries laden with caked cholesterol. This is USDA certified organic too, so I would recommend this to anyone who is health-conscious.
Wow! This matcha is absolutely fabulous. I am a part of a matcha club at work and this matcha has been the clear front runner for some time. We like its robust flavor, ease of mixing in with water and its constant consistency throughout the bag. It is not the top shelf matcha but for an everyday matcha drinker it is a perfect drink.
