I like this tea. This brand is vegetal with a spinach taste profile with a hint of grassiness. The color of the powder is a chartreuse green then morphs into a dark jade when water is added. The aroma of the tea is vegetal and grassy. From opening of the can to first taste, DoMatcha is a high quality matcha tea. Yes, I would recommend this brand’s matcha. As all matchas, this is best enjoyed prepared the traditional way with a whisk and drank from a bowl!
I was just about to pour my 6-8 oz water over it when I read this and saw “each bag makes 2-3 cups” so instead of doing re-steeps I decided to start over, make 2cups hot, drink half and chill the other half.
I was hoping for a matcha burst of energy but in a lighter form than straight matcha. I like how this is sweeter and smoother than other (admittedly low quality) genmaichas I’ve tried! Will write more later…
After reading all the stellar reviews on this Matcha I contacted DoMatcha for a few samples to taste. However there really is not anything particularly brilliant about this matcha other than its colour. While many say this is not a bitter Matcha it really depends on how you prepare it. To be fair my samples came in tight little tubes and unless you sift that powder it will be clumpy no matter how hard you whisk it. It is a good Matcha, but far from a great Matcha.
Thank you RachanaC for a sample of this! I am backlogging while my daughter is down for a nap…she has a double ear infection and I have been busy since Thursday taking care of a clingy and sad toddler. So since my energy was completely diminished I decided what better to try than matcha?! It’s been 105 here lately so I decided to have a matcha latte and it was quite yummy. Smooth, sweet and grassy…yum!
Since I have some Vanilla Rice Milk on hand I thought I would try some of it with this Matcha and compare notes. I like this Matcha over the Culinary Matcha BUT I am not sure if Vanilla Rice Milk is the way to go with Matcha. LOL – it makes this one taste VERY BOLD which is good but it also gives it the coffee creamer aftertaste…perhaps I used too much for my palate!? Not sure.
Okay…so…I tried this again…
I had half of a smoothie left from this morning that I am taste-tasting for a local chain. It was BERRY Flavored and consisted of: Ice, Yogurt, Raspberries, Blueberries, Strawberries, and I ended up putting the same amount of this Matcha in it. Of course, it melted the ice – mostly – but it also was WAY frothy!!! This goes extremely well in a smoothie! I’m really enjoying this. I actually like the concoction BETTER with the Matcha than without – I felt the smoothie minus the matcha was too tart…this mellows that out a little.
My first experience with this match I gave an 80. Mixed with my Smoothie I would say a 90 to 95-ish…I will stick with this overall rating for now but I will change it down the road with more experiments!
I just received this and will be spending a lot of time with it over the next week or so…I will be doing a more lengthy review at some point over at It’s All About The Leaf. I would like to try different methods and mixtures just for fun. Right now…I went ‘plain jane’ with Matcha and Water – whisking and it smells like warm broccoli. It’s a dark vintage looking green in color yet very smooth. It’s very flavorful and smooth…almost a milky taste.
