Japanese Green Tea Direct From Farm (ebay Store)

Recent Tasting Notes

It’s not bad but I think ceremonial matcha should be better than this. Well, I’ve never had a really good expensive stuff before but from the 4 different matcha I have so far. This one would be 3 in the rank in terms of price and how much I like the tea. The colour is good. The flavour seems to be on the mild side.

Have been making banana/melon/yogurt/milk shakes with it all summer. Drank it like that or frozen and more like icecream. Absolutely love the shakes – and peeps around me loved them too.

Matcha itself without milk i can’t drink. Bitter. Idk if that’s normal with matcha tea or it’s just this one that’s like that? Even a sip of milk changes it completely to delicious.

I’ve had matchas (or more specifically certain matcha:water ratios) that have been just a touch bitter, but sour? That’s just sad and icky! :(

lol nah i used the wrong word :) bitter is what i ment. hey i’m croatian after all :)))

Cofftea

OK well I feel better now. There should be a bit of bitterness- you don’t want it overly sweet after all. How much matcha to water did you use?

malomorgen

um half a teaspoon of matcha and very little hot water. like 1/2dl even less… then use the froth thingie ;)

after i try DoMatha in that way I’ll be able to tell if its about matcha or im just doing something wrong…

I ordered more :D Hooked I am on Matcha NaNa Milk shake at the moment – and i spoiled some friends with it too. What i do is pretty much:
3 banana’s
1,5 tsp matcha
few oz’s of milk
little bit of lemon juice
ice (almost as much as milk)
and a little bit of sugar (not necessarily)

I usually stir everything else first in the shaker, then add and stir the matcha powder in the end.

Yummmmmmm ;)

Milk and lemon? Doesn’t the milk curdle?

Well when i got my DoMatcha reward tin and realized i loooove matcha latte i got scared i’d run out of it too fast. And matcha cant be bought in my country. Sad i know. Ordering little DoMatcha tins was kinda too pricey so i went to look for some more affordable decent replacement. And I found it. This was 20$ for 100g of matcha plus a gift sampler of some green tea (title is in japanese – having issues figuring out what it could be).

I made a latte and it’s almost as good as DoMatcha. Maybe it’s just slightly less delicate and smooth. But really barely. For me it’s almost as good. And that means yummm.

So see, ebay can be good too ;)

I also got the tea delivered in just 2 weeks from Japan – and shipping was free.

Here’s the link of the ebay store in case you dare to try ;)
