I am quite pleased with this Matcha, so I’d have to say this is my favorite so far. I was planning on trying DoMatcha as well, but I like this so much I don’t think I should bother just yet _

Definitely has a bittersweet earthy taste and goes down smooth. I like to make mine a little thicker than normal, and the color is vibrant and the aroma is fresh and lovely.
Best part is, I do not feel the crash from the caffeine as I do when I drink my macchiato. Usually an hour or so after my morning coffee I start to feel drained and tired again. I definitely feel better about drinking multiple bowls of this per day before/after work, than I do about drinking multiple cups of coffee.

I get my pure matcha on amazon, I think it is little cheaper on there…

I really like matcha and I really like rooibos. Plus, I’m tickled pink to receive a tin of this from an angel named Charlotte I would never have been able to try this otherwise. Come to think of it, there are a ton of teas I would never have been able to try if not for my dear Steepster family! So thank you to Charlotte and everyone in Steepster. You make the tea experience so much more than I thought it could be :)

Now, on to the Red Matcha! Being a newbie, I clumsily opened the tin and dropped a bit more powder than I had planned into my (brother’s) shake bottle. Made a mental note of the need for a spoon. Next, I put it under the water dispenser and tiny clouds of powder flew. This helped me inhale the aroma, lol. Upon hindsight, I note: it is better to put in water first..or pour water oh so gently. Ah, matcha truly is an art requiring much grace!

So I shake it, and sip it, and oh, the water’s gone down…add some more water to make up for too much powder from earlier…and sip down some more, imagining the possibilities of mixing this with other things. I did like the teabag rooibos w/cinnamon and vanilla so I think I will try that for a start :)

rooibos w cinnamon & vanilla? the wissotzky teabag was good. Lariel liked it too.

i didnt get to try it yet..was too immersed getting the feel of it plain? haha. i think the powder tastes better with less water (i put a lot of water in).

This “black matcha” is touted as being made from the finest Darjeeling and Assam tea leaves, yet inexplicably I was hoping this would taste more like a pu’erh. (This may have been because of Pure Matcha’s mention of the powdered tea of the Song Dynasty, which I’m pretty sure was in cake form before being powdered.)

Anyhow, despite defying my expectations, I liked this pretty well. I first tried making this in the style of a thick matcha, because I like my black teas strong. Not bad. I went a little bit overboard with the amount of powder used, and suspect that I should have used a hotter water temperature than for standard matcha.

Later I added milk and sugar to this, and it made a really good black tea latte.

Ahhhh! What did I just drink? I guess all I can say is that you should make sure you like rooibos before you buy this product. This pretty much tasted like sawdust to me (I will say that it tasted like the sweetest sawdust from the most delicious wood) but this drink just wasn’t for me. I will refrain from rating this one.

This is a good preparation for the experience of opening a tin of matcha….has to be done very, very carefully! :D

Thank you for sharing this with me, Charlotte! <3

How cool is this? Instant rooibos! Gourmet instant gratification! Lovely for enjoying as is, or making lattes, or even adding to smoothies. If you love the unique flavor of rooibos, this is definitely one to add to your tea cupboard.

So after the June Steepster box, I wanted to try another matcha that was not a kitchen grade. To try out a good grade A brand after the steepster box sparked my interest. Looking at the reviews I wanted to try this one first.

I will say this is the first tea that I can actually feel the effect of the caffeine. I can drink a pot of coffee and then go straight to bed and not really think twice about it. This I can actually feel. I made two bowls of this a few days ago and I can feel it instantly. This is a good thing since I’m not a morning person. I feel great after drinking a bowl and want to start my day.
This matcha is buttery and smooth. It does not have a bite to it. I have had the Domatcha ceremonial grade and noticed a difference between the two. It has a nice green color to it and it smells fresh.

Yum! I do love a chawan of Matcha. There really are very few teas that I find more invigorating … it’s a great way to recharge in the afternoon.

And this one is OUTSTANDING! One of the best I’ve tried. Sweet, buttery smooth! Usually with Matcha I notice a bittersweet kind of flavor to it … but this one has NO bitterness at all, just sweetness. Very nice… Smooth, thick and lovely.

I want to buy this so bad. My next tea purchase.

The only thing keeping me from getting into matcha is the purchase of the additional tools you would need.

LiberTEAS

Really, you don’t need additional tools. They do make it easier to prepare the matcha, but, you can prepare the matcha without them. You can use an ordinary spoon to scoop out the matcha: a Chashaku scoops out an amount of matcha that is about “almond size.” I use a small strainer to sift my matcha (I purchased it at the grocery store in the kitchen utensil section for a dollar or two). I use a chawan (matcha bowl) but you can use a cereal bowl or a wide mouthed cup for that matter. Even a chasen isn’t necessary – you can use small wire whisk to whisk your matcha, or you can even use a spoon to stir it, it might not end up quite as frothy as it would with the bamboo chasen, but it will still taste good.

DaisyChubb

^ I concur! I use a spoon and a wide mug and I’m good to go!

Added to my wish shopping list. Thanks.

Azzrian

Thank you for this info! I had my first matcha today although it was a cold milk matcha but LOVED it!! Absolutely want to get some. They had some for sale there but was 30.00 bucks for a small tin. I need to do some price shopping.

Delicious smooth creamy refreshing taste. I preferred it over ice with added condiments such as milk and sugar but has a good natural straight taste as well. Something I could see myself drinking for a long time and never really lose interest. Highly recommended.

Dear Matcha: Thank you for being there when I am sad, happy, in love, angry, tired, heart broken and hung over. The smooth taste of your sweet and daring flavour sets my soul on fire.
Matcha, I love your guts. And my guts love you.
