Tastes like grass. Not bitter, has a smooth texture but taste is bad, like a lawn. What could taste worst? Bitter dandelion greens. Will NOT purchase again. Will buy matcha green tea from a different company. Will get a matcha that is organic, ceremonial grade and sweet. Have been purchasing Republic Teas for years but this daily matcha is not for me.

I’m just beginning to dabble in making matcha at home cuz I can’t pay $5-$6 a day for Starbucks. So with a little bit of research I went to world market for matcha and this was the only one that didn’t have a review, idk why so I bought it. Went home and made it with 2% steamed milk and a little bit of sugar and I’m HOOKED. It’s light, easy to stir and was really affordable compared to others I’ve looked up. So I’ll probably be repurchasing again!

Not Bitter

Within the last year, I have started drinking matcha tea and really love the delicate sweetness it leaves on the palate. I started with the U-Matcha Charcoal and really liked it. After I tried that, I went to Amazon online to find an organic green tea matcha from Japan thinking it would be just as good. I bought two different kinds. I was disappointed in them both, so I came back to ROT and tried the Matcha Powder Green Mini Tin (.30 oz) to see if it was as good as the Matcha Charcoal and I loved it! The thing that sets these green Matcha teas apart from the others I have tried is that they are not bitter. Even if I may have used more than a teaspoon per the recommended amount of water, it still does not get bitter like the others I've tried. I will be buying my Matcha teas only from ROT from now on!

Not only does it taste great but it makes me feel great as well. I have some gastrointestinal issues that didn't just get better but simply went away after I started drinking this tea. I didn't realize it at first, but after thinking about it I figured out that I started getting better shortly after I started drinking this tea. Amazing...and yummy.

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.

Potential Less-Caffeinated Beverage To Replace Morning Coffee
4 Stars This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

from TN on wrote:
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.

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.

RoT is my first taste of Matcha powdered tea... and it is a great welcome. Today was rough, I felt beat down and sad and it just so happens that my order arrived today. I made a cup simply in water with a tiny bit of brown sugar. What a kind, warming taste! Very soothing and also uplifting... I'm not sure of the Matchas out there, I will be tasting other options just to really know Matcha, but I must say that this is a keeper.

I have drank a lot of different tea over the years and found this product to be outstanding. For those not use to drinking green tea or Matcha teas, a very earthy taste is natural and the way it should taste. I always tell people new to Matcha tea, "If you like the earthy notes of shiitake mushrooms, then you'll love this type of tea."

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!!

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.

This is my first time using matcha, so I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. It's a very earthy tea, slightly bitter but not overly so, and adds a healthy boost to a smoothie. I love it with honey. I enjoyed this tea and will but it again.

I thought this matcha was pretty good. Not too strong or bitter. It has a very green taste; sorta grassy, but then again, it's green tea. It's going to taste grassy and earthy because that's just how green tea tastes. If you're a matcha snob, you may prefer a more expensive matcha. For those who are new to matcha, I think it's pretty good and I would buy it again.

Great! Doesn't taste like fish

I was extremely intrigued by the cheap price that was listed for this matcha, and figured if it was unsuitable for drinking I could always cook with it. I was pleasantly surprised that this is good quality for a good price. It's has the slightest bitter aftertaste, but it still also has the sweet finish that matcha is know to have. The bitterness isn't strong or off putting. This matcha was also vibrant green when I ordered it and has a nice pleasant aroma. I would also like to note that it doesn't taste like fish/seaweed like I worried. I've bought several loose leaf green teas that have a fishy flavor and I know the green tea lattes at 'everyone's favorite coffee shop' have an unbearably fishy flavor, so I was worried this might have that too. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with my matcha, and will definitely reorder when I run out.

I have been using this for well over a year and love it. I am not a tea drinker in general, but have found that I do enjoy the Matcha when I mix it in other drinks like my water flavor packs. I also use it in my smoothies and other drink forms. My only issue with the product is I haven't been able to find it in my area. I just moved here two months ago and would like to find it locally. Of course, I could always order it online if I had to. :)

Too Bitter
1 Star This shopper rated the product 1 out of 5 stars

from CA on wrote:
I ordered 3 cans of this matcha. I hope I can use it for baking or something because otherwise it is way too bitter to drink straight. The best Matcha I had so far was from Bouncing Bear Botanicals and they are sold out so I figured i'd try this because its cheaper and you get more. From BBB you get 1oz=$38, but it tastes earthy, alluring, sweet, and has the most smooth and amazing relaxing clarity feeling. This Matcha on the other hand tastes like straight green tea that has been brewed for an hour = Very Bitter. Recently went out and bought different matcha because I cant drink this forever. I bought 3 different kinds to compare = Domatcha 2nd harvest and ceremonial grade, and maeda-en universal. All were smooth and lacked bitterness found here. The 2nd harvest Domatcha did have a sliiight undertone of bitter, but was otherwise very smooth in comparison. All lack the earthy sweetness I found with BBB's (some random japanese) matcha but each one was nice and fulfilling and smooth compared to this rep

Very Healthy Tea. I'm Hooked On This.

I have never, ever in my life been a green tea drinker. However, the older I got I started drinking it every now and then. This Matcha Tea is super healthy. I drink my tea without any sweeteners. It is not a tea I "pleasure" but I drink the tea faithfully because I know it is extremely healthy for me. The taste of the tea is ok. If I use really hot water it tastes a little grassy. The trick is to use "warm" water and make sure it Froths. Green tea is largely an "acquired" taste but so is broccoli and spinach. That doesn't stop me from eating them however.
