This was more like a matcha shot. It was 4:15 yesterday, I needed to leave the house by 4:30 to go paddling. I’d meant to make a Matcha milkshake (like the one HesperJune mentioned earlier this week), but time was getting away from me… So, I poured a splash of almond milk in a wide-bottomed but small mug of mine, eyeballed about 1/4 tsp of matcha with a regular ol’ “silverware” teaspoon, stirred it up a bit, added more milk (about 5 oz total), frothed it up with a few short blasts of my Areolatte (the “moo” model), and gulped it down.

It was delicious, there were somehow NO lumps (which I’ve never had happen when trying to cold steep/electric whisk matcha), and it foamed up very well. Apparently Blue Diamond almond milk is better than Silk and So Delicious at frothing even when cold. Score!

And what’s better, I had plenty of energy and a great time paddling (flatwater lake. I don’t do rivers).

I think there will be many more cold matcha lattes in my future now that I know I can successfully whip one up and drink it down in 5 min. flat!

It could’ve had a stronger flavor though. It was an even balance between almond and matcha. Maybe next time I’ll double the matcha to get that lovely green color and flavor.

Sounds tasty:-)

Had to break this in right away. http://www.breakawaymatcha.com/products/matcha-creamers.html Literally, moments after it arrived today, I was frothing matcha in it. The ceramic was still warm from its overland journey from sunny CA to possibly equally sunny NC. I may have let out a squeal of delight when the big brown truck slowed in front of the neighbor’s, but then stopped in front of my house! Me? Me!

I will try to write more (possibly an “online place” review later) but overall the entire ordering/shipment/product from Breakaway Matcha is top notch (although I only ordered this, not their actual matcha tea, but I probably definitely will in the future).

I realize this “note” is more about Breakaway than DoMatcha, which is probably bad form, but I love my tin of DoMatcha! It is what got me “into” matcha and buying matcha gear. I will buy their “ceremonial singles” (single-serve pouches) next though for easier matcha prep w/ fewer tools (and less mess!)

used this match to make a Matcha Green Monster smoothie following this recipe:
http://thechiclife.com/2011/07/matcha-green-tea-green-monster-smoothie.html

I used about 3/4 tsp matcha to split the difference withing the range called for, but next time will use the full tsp. I did not add any sweetener, used vanilla greek yogurt, and unsweetened almond milk. The texture was perfect (rich & creamy, but easy to drink) and the flavor is great, just needs a tiny matcha boost.

Mixed with coconut milk for a quick afternoon pick-me-up. Will use whisk or frother next time as stirring didn’t blend it well (even though I mixed the tea with some warm water first.)

Try putting it in a container w/ a lid and shaking it. That’s how I do my matcha OJ and protein water and it works wonderful!

Nothing in this world makes me feel quite as good as a nice cup of matcha. And this one delivers.

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.

Thomas Edward(Toad)

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.

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.
