This shade-grown tea from the tencha leaf is deveined then stone ground into a fine powder. This bright green powder is whipped into water that is heated to just before boiling resulting in a smooth, vegetal sweetness with no astringency.
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.
Japanese matcha powder ground from the finest Japanese green tea leaves.

I love Matcha tea
March 05, 2014
I love this matcha tea. I mix it with their frothier and sit to sip and enjoy in the morning after my breakfast. It's my best time of the day. It tastes velvety smooth and delicious. I have tasted other green teas in restaurants and have never liked their taste or aftertaste. Matcha is different in aroma, taste, and no aftertaste except a memorable experience. I take my tea serious. I love Matcha. Even the packaging it came in smelled good and lots of care went into the whole process of my order. I love this company. Thank you!!

Smooth, great flavor. I use it to make my own green tea latte like Starbucks but it doesn't cost $4.50 a cup.
Add to Protein Smoothie!

I love this matcha powder! I add it to a smoothie:
1 tsp matcha powder
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
2 cups fresh spinach
1/2 cup crushed ice
water to desired texture - about 1 cup
The smoothie has a great fresh, green taste, and combined with the vanilla whey protein it tastes almost exactly like that fantastic green tea ice cream you get at Japanese restaurants. Feel free to add a little agave for extra sweetness.
Healthy and soothing

Although the matcha tea has a little earthy taste, the fact that I know that I am drinking a natural tea with no preservatives is more than enough to order it again and again. I mix it with frothed soy or almond milk and prepare a soothing latte...

I drink more then 10 cups a day with my Creme Brulee milk that others put in there coffee. with stevia It is sweet and delicious, just like I love it. The powder dissolves quickly but you have to steer before you take a sip, since the tea sinks to the bottom, but so much better than tea bags.
