Had some matcha green tea after lunch made with plain water. Had been making a matcha “latte” w/a nut milk but plain water is best to really taste the flavors in matcha. Very clean green flavor, very good matcha.

I purchased the Domatcha brand after reading favorable comments here. I found a fantastic deal on ebay, so that made the price reasonable. I am a novice to matcha, however, compared to two other plain matchas I’ve tried this very good. The color is vibrant green, the smell is lightly grassy, and the taste is very fresh and almost sweet. I do not detect any bitterness. I like it!

I think this matcha is quite refreshing and delicious, had it made with milk and sweetened, we drink matcha as a “pick me up” in a small cup but I could make a big tall glass of this and just drink it up. I’ve been really looking forward to coming home and trying this matcha, it’s one of the better ones we’ve tried.

I may have to try this. I love that it is organic!

Yummy! They are my favorite Matcha so far. :)

I wish I liked milk more and it didn’t COMPLETELY cover the taste of matcha for me.

Milk and honey Matcha, I didn’t think about that, i use agave or some suga sometimes.
@yappy- just use a little more Matcha in there and try it, we use lots of matcha in ours, prolly too much.

Having this mixed with Original Vanilla Almond Breeze this morning with a Dagoba “Beaucoup Berries” bar for breakfast. Life is good.

I am so lowbrow. I am drinking maybe two teaspoons of this mixed in with 5 or so ounces of “original” Almond Breeze almond milk, and all I can think is that it tastes better with the vanilla flavored one. :-/ Drinking it this way brings me back to childhood and eating green tea ice cream at our local sushi restaurant.

Going back to the tea, this is a really a delicious matcha. I enjoy this one more each time I drink it (whether I prepare it this way or in a more traditional manner).

Smelled like it was going to be strong, but it ended up being pretty well balanced after I steeped it. Taste to me is buttery, with a faint grassy note that is just right.

Very creamy, dark emerald green. Accidentally whisked it too much for my liking the first time, making it slightly bitter. The second time was better, smooth- no bitterness. Tastes like everything I wanted from loose leaf sencha but never quite captured.

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C

Matcha nog!

following DoMatcha’s guidelines: “For a more contemporary Matcha-Nog recipe, heat up 6 oz. of readymade Organic Eggnog available at your local natural food retailer, add a dash of nutmeg, and top it off with 1 tsp. of matcha pre-whisked into a froth. A splash of rum is optional!”

I used 1/2 tsp matcha, a combination of milk, almond milk, and eggnog (because I wanted fewer calories/less dairy), and no rum as it was the middle of the day ;-) Not bad!

Also, I wasn’t sure what liquid I was supposed to pre-whisk the matcha into (more milk, I guess?). I just sifted it over the heated nog/milk/nutmeg blend, then mixed with the areolatte. Easy!

LiberTEAS

Hmm… that sounds kind of interesting!

Janefan

It was… interesting. Warm eggnog is weird enough, and then adding in the matcha is also weird. Once I thought of it as a hot matcha latte with a shot of eggnog flavoring it seemed less weird. A fun experiment, but I doubt I’ll have it again.

Bonnie

Hot Toddy I think my Grandmother’s era would have called it, or maybe a hot buttered rum sort of drink would be interesting if you use rum.

Janefan

@Bonnie I don’t think I’ve ever had a true hot buttered rum. Maybe I’ll try it this season. I have seen a couple “hot buttered chai” recipes going around lately…

Backlog: I made matcha lemonade yesterday.
8 oz Full Circle organic lemonade
1/4 tsp matcha

Used my aerolatte to mix because I’m lazy. it even frothed a bit! Served over ice.

This lemonade is so sweet it’s kinda gross :-/ Next time, more matcha, and maybe some water (2-4 oz) in place of some of the lemonade

Will I ever go to Japan? I dream of it! At least I can savor the amazing flavor of this matcha. Thanks to the heads up here on Steepster, I got this on sale. How could I resist? The flavor is so nuanced; delicate and robust at the same time. I just stare into the vivid green, inhaling that vegetal aroma…and just imagine I’m visiting Japan…

I ordered it on sale too! Did your order come with a weird free sample too? Some herbal pills for “urinary frequency”…?

Serenity

OMG Janefan YES. I was like, “errr…thanks…? Is there something I should know about this matcha??”

Nik

LOL [innocent bystander falls off chair, laughing]

Serenity

And I was so excited at first, “ooh! Sample! Mabye MORE TEA!” : D

Janefan

I know! I realized the box was rattling (it really did sound like pills in a bottle) so I had to open it then and there. And cue disappointment. That is so weird, I mean what percentage of their customers can actually use these pills? It’s not like an herbal supplement just for general health. It’s for a specific ailment that I (luckily) do not have. I don’t know what to do with them! If anybody is reading this and may need them, please PM me. I’d be glad to give them a home. It’s a bottle of 30 pills.

Serenity

Great idea, Janefan, same here!

I added 1 tsp to my Green Monster smoothie for extra energy, because I’ve been dragging lately!

My basic recipe is:
8oz milk (almond, coconut, dairy, etc.)
1/2 banana, frozen
2 large handfuls baby spinach (about 1/4 of a bag, or 1/2 cup packed)
1 carton (~6oz) low/non-fat greek yogurt (Plain, vanilla, w/fruit, etc.)

Blend until smooth. Serve in a mason jar with a few cubes of ice, and a straw. Feel healthy!
