What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
This tea has excellent color and taste. I tried it for the first time hot and I sometimes eat a couple of dates with the tea while I sip it. It tastes wonderful that way. No white Sugar needed, just natural fruit flavor with it is great! Even alone it tastes great and whips up nicely and easily. Thanks so much and I will continue to buy from here.
Love the Matcha
I have tried different brands of Matcha; however, they were much more expensive and not as easy to use. I love the fact that The Republic of Tea Matcha comes in a tin with a resealable envelope. Genius!
Potential Less-Caffeinated Beverage To Replace Morning Coffee
I am a coffee drinker who liked a cup or bottle of green tea every now and again before I learned of green tea's benefits. I drink it more often now because it is something I like and is a good break for my normal higher-caffeinated coffees. I ordered the Matcha Powder after trying the Double Green Matcha tea bags. I like both. The Matcha Powder is great for mornings at home. The Double Green Matcha tea bags are great for whenever and are more portable if you like to take your tea elsewhere. I made my first cup of tea with the Matcha Powder using 1 teaspoon. For me, 1 teaspoon was too much. Making it with 1 teaspoon resulted in a drink with each sip containing a non-lingering but deep bitterness. The second cup was much better when I made it with ½ teaspoon. Drinkable without any additives like a cup of black coffee but I liked it better with a little honey added. It is a drink with wake-up qualities. It could become a morning coffee replacer.
Love Hot or Cold
Matcha tea Powder has to be whisked very well for the powder to dissolve. I purchased a kit which I do not see with the tin of the powder, organic agave nectar and a battery whisk. Purchased this as a video shown a Green Tea Latte - Yummy. I just recently found a recipe for Iced Matcha Tea. 8oz. cold water Ice cubes 1/2 tsp of Matcha Powder Super fine sugar or Agave Nectar or sweetner of your choice (enough to you liking) Shake in a mixing cup until powder is dissolved - Enjoy! I always drink water throughout the day, but this about 3 times a week and with the warm summer months coming - very refreshing.
I had not heard of Matcha tea before but after researching the tea, thought I would give RofT a try. I love it! I am still learning how to make it and each cup is very tasty. I have more energy and make it again and again.
