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 am addicted

I love Matcha Tea! I drink this cold only. I have to have it every morning and again sometime later in the day. It gives me energy and I feel better-less meds for Fibromyalgia. I use the blender - lite vanilla soy milk, honey, few ice cubes and matcha. So sweet and so good!

I must say the taste is pretty icky, but the benefits are so fantastic. I've only had it for two days and I will explore different ways to drink it because it is too good, not to drink it. Thank you for your very reasonable price!

I had it iced & whisked with cream & sugar. I loved it. It does have a bit of a grass taste.
Pretty good for a first try

It was pretty good for a tester. Grassy and kinda strong. I'll probably try the others on this site as well.

I had this tea in Japan and hated it. Then had Matcha Tea ice cream. Sugar definitely improves the flavor!
