Premium UMatcha Yuzu is unlike regular green tea, these tender, shade-grown leaves are ground to a fine powder creating a rich balance of flavors in baked goods or ice cream. This exceptional tea is abundant in nutrients and has the balanced flavors of what is referred to as umami (literally, "yummy" in Japanese). Premium UMatcha Yuzu makes a bright addition to mixed drinks, spice rubs and sweet desserts.
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 ½ to 1 teaspoon of matcha powder to bowl or cup. Add 6 oz of steaming water (175°F). Experiment to find your favored strength. Using a tea whisk or a hand frother blend for one to two minutes until the matcha forms a nice top foam. For iced tea, blend ½ to 1 teaspoon to 8 oz of cold water and pour into a glass of ice.
Ground Japanese Tencha leaves and Yuzu (citron) peel.

I like the matcha teas, however when I got this one, I thought it would have a lemony flavor -- it does not. You can smell the yuzu from the package in the can, but that's about it. I even tried adding a little stevia to it to see if that brought out the yuzu, nope! The roasted rice is much better. I hope that they can improve/perfect the flavor of this tea. Maybe the matcha is just to strong and it over-powers the yuzu??

I am not sure why this tea has such a low rating. Quality Matcha is very expensive and hard to find so I was happy when I saw this at Whole Foods. I also love Korean Yuzu, so the two flavors together was a great idea. When I mix the tea the color is definitely green, not brown. However I cannot rate this 5 stars because I found the yuzu flavor to be too subtle. I wish there was a stronger yuzu flavor in this matcha, because that is what I am expecting when I buy flavored a matcha.

I've had a lot of matcha in my time, and when I pay upwards of $15 for a can of tea, I expect the contents to be green, and at least resemble matcha in flavor. This tea is more brown (oxidized) than green, has a dry, bitter aroma that puts me in mind of stale cigarettes, no yuzu or citrus notes, and is undrinkably bitter. The idea of a flavored matcha is novel, so I applaud that creativity, but please go back to the drawing board!

Bought this tea in Sweden, for about 40 $ USD. That made my expectations very high. But unfortunately I was disappointed. Taste like Swedish nettles, it´s absolutely a good tea, but over priced, in Sweden anyway...
Where is the Yuzu?

I was rather disappointed in this tea. I could not taste any citrus overtones of yuzu. I thought the tea had very little flavor. Perhaps this tea is for people who are afraid of green tea? I drink Repbulic's plain Matcha all the time - I even buy it by the pound making various green tea drinks with it. I am puzzled by this flavorless offering.
