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.

Iced

It is OK. Comparable to Koyamaen’s $10 matcha. Considering this tea is made by Koyamaen, it might actually be the exact same tea. Good basic matcha, but not a lot of interest. No Umami, just a little sweet.

This is the best matcha I’ve ever had. It’s almost creamy and isn’t bitter at all. It tastes really fresh and the powder is very fine.

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!

Agreed. The bowl makes it better. =D

Increasing the rating on this one…just had 2 cups – I forgot how great it was!

It really is a Matcha day for you!

Love to use Matcha when making white chocolate truffles, then coating them in a dark chocolate.

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!

Needed something to cure my energy slumps, satisfy my carb cravings, fill my travel mug w/ only 1 teabag, and brew quickly. This was the perfect answer.

sadly, instead of curing those problems it actually seems to have given me heartburn. sigh this is not my day.

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

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.

The bulk matcha is much better! I agree though… while I would not say that there are matchas that are definitely better out there (that I’ve tried), I would definitely say that it’s better than some. So far for me there’s substandard matcha- then everything else. Pretty black and white:)

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…

This is my first time making my own Matcha and I was surprised at how smooth, milky, and delicious this was. I will be trying different brands to compare.

Used my very last bit of this for a strawberry smoothie this morning. Unfortunately, there was SO little left that I can’t even tell that it’s there :( Which is a shame because I finally got a smoothie that was actually smoothie consistency. I have finally cracked the smoothie code! Go me!

Attempt at matcha smoothie number 2!

This one went much better. Longer blending + moar yoghurt is clearly the way! Still a bit runny though. I’m not sure I mentioned it yesterday, but these are actually my first attempts at smoothies, period, so…bit of a learning curve. Per advice received from someone whose smoothies I have tasted and found delicious, I will try adding banana to it to act as a thickener. I also have strawberries (2 packs for $3! I love sales), so I should probably use those up.

Ah well, that’s for tomorrow.

So I realize I’m not saying much about the smoothie itself. It tastes pretty good! Like kinda watery matcha ice cream. There’s an odd aftertaste which I’m not sure what to attribute to. Is it the almond milk? Or should I use different yogurt? I’m trying out a new brand of almond milk, so I’ll have to try it with some other teas to see if I’m still getting a weird aftertaste.

Also, even with matcha smoothie, I can’t seem to wake up! Have I grown immune to matcha!?!? …or should I just start going to bed earlier?

Tried out making a matcha smoothie today. I do not have much experience with smoothies so the result, while undeniably tasty was not really smoothie-like as such, but I will get better, I’m sure!

I think the yoghurt I used didn’t really go well with the matcha taste, I will have to experiment with different kinds. Sadly, I am almost out of this tin :( Need moar matcha!

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.

You’re just a lean, mean matcha machine today!:)
