This is a tea that my sister-in-law picked up at the Hong Kong Marketplace. She gave me a few bags to take home, and I proceeded to put them in my cabinet even though I didn’t think I would like it at all. I haven’t been a big fan of rose and I was afraid the green tea would be strange with the rose. I was actually very wrong.
This tea is really good. It is not overly floral, just slightly and the green tea is very light but tasty. I don’t think I would want an entire box of this but I am enjoying the few bags I have. They are especially comforting right before bed.
I am 100% happy with this product, considering both its quality and price.
First, I would like to point out this is not a matcha product. Even though the pack says “matcha”, it’s really just a green tea product. The package is labeled this way because many Asian people take matcha and green tea powder as the same concept, however in Japan, matcha is strictly distinguished from other green tea products.
This green tea powder product from Asian grocery. It’s fine enough to function as “matcha” in desserts. The pack is half a pound, all for several dollars. I don’t think I could ever possibly finish this big pack.
I use this powder and light cream to make green tea popsicles. The green tea taste is very refreshing. It stands out from the background cream flavor very well. This is my favorite summer cold dessert.
Another easy way to use this powder is “matcha” milk tea – similar to starbucks matcha frappucchino. 1/4 teaspoon of green tea powder in a glass of milk, stir with a chopstick or an electric milk froth maker. Easy and yummy!
