CAFFEINE:On average, Matcha contains less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine. STEEPING INSTRUCTIONS:Fill the kettle with fresh, filtered water and heat to just short of boiling. Fill matcha bowl or cup with warm water and pour out. Add 1 teaspoon of matcha powder to bowl or cup. Add 6 oz hot water. Using a tea whisk, whisk briskly for a minute or two until the matcha forms a nice green colored foam.

Well rounded and very smooth
Great tea. Bitter as to be expected.

If you like green tea in general, you will like this Matcha because it has all the flavor and more antioxidants.
If you want to learn more about traditional tea ceremonies too, I would buy this and the matcha kits along with a book on Japanese tea.

This tea is grassy and slightly sweet, it is absolutely excellent for you and a wonderful general matcha tea. With that said, however, it is not top quality and I believe Republic of Tea knows this and is reflected in the price. Most high quality matcha tea is nearly double the price for this amount. The color of this matcha is not as bright green as some ceremonial grade matcha I have tried. Still, don't let that deter you. It is still organic, has a tremendous amount of antioxidants, and is wonderful for everyday use for relaxing moments. I definitely recommend.
Potent stuff! Full of flavor! Love it!

Intense and strong flavor! As matcha powder should be. I put it in my smoothies.

What can I say but Awsome! I am after all a valley girl.
I was fortunate enough many years ago to be able to go to Japan and particiapate in a tea ceremony. Now I can go back in my heart every time I enjoy your wonderful tea. And its organic! The search is over and I can rest in peace.

I was told this was a very vegetal tea but given a 'recipe' that included a touch of soy milk and agave syrup. I used the recipe and love this tea as the soy cut down the vegetal flavor a bit. I most recently bought the whisk to try and make it the 'proper' way. I have really grown fond of this tea. I don't unfortunately have another vendor's matcha to compare it too.
not the best quality, but plenty of quantity

This is not as smooth as the other matcha I've had, and it doesn't taste as delicious. But, on the other, there's a lot of it, compared to what you'd find elsewhere for this price.
Depends on what you're looking for.
