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).
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’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!!
So if you let the water boil and don’t want to wait for it to cool, is it ok to just add some cool water to the mug and top it off with boiling water? That’s what I did with this and it tastes fine.
It’s been kind of a weird day. I feel kind of like I’m in a dream. Is this real life? Anyway, it’s a soothing comforting tea. It’s not complicated. It’s just good. That’s all I need today. Tasty.

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.
