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.

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.

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’ve dried two different matches of this grade, pure and this one. They are very different. We’re pure is more buttery, domatcha is more grassy. Domatcha froths up very well considering that I keep it in the fridge. I love the smell and taste of this tea, and I mean love. The fact that it’s easier to find, aka do not have to order online, helps, but the tea itself I like better. It has a wonderful green color, and a very earthy, elemental, almost velvety texture and weight. The taste is grassy, a little bit buttery, and fresh.
Up next I’m trying aiyas matcha, will be buying ths tea again and again.

I thought I was being ripped off for paying $30 for this little tin. But I enjoyed every cup of milk tea I made with this. When I used up the whole tin, I decided to find cheaper alternatives so I bought a few ounces from a local coffee-and-tea shop. It was a mistake! What a horrifying experience! Now I use it for baking instead. I have learned that you really get what you pay for in terms of matcha.

I love this tea~ I have been drinking DoMatcha once to twice daily now for two years. I believe in it’s benefits as I have Rheumatoid Athritis and use to have a very high cholesterol and triglycerides. After drinking this tea (the only thing different was also Reichi mushrooms) my TG count fell from over 400 to 157!!
It tastes earthy and lovely just by itself. I love the whisking of it….it truly is a wonderful tea!!

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.
