Matcha is definitely worth a try. Not for everyone, and it can get pricey. I love how Red Leaf offers flavored matchas since I was never a huge fan of straight up matcha. Plus, its super easy to make – just stick it in a water bottle and your good to go. No fiddling with kettles or steeping.

However, the bummer about ANY matcha – no matter the quality – is that it’s one time use only. Kind of a bummer for us tea drinkers who are used to multiple steeps.

hehe I almost never resteep so it’s just the advantage of not worrying about steeping times for me :D

Now that I know how to make my matcha quick and easy I love it :D I like it best in my travel mug. Two scoops of matcha pour water halfway into the mug froth it with a mechanical frother (tea or coffee store sells them or even black & Decker) and then I add milk. I find the best temp to work with is 185 degrees F. It’s good right after I add milk and gets better as it cools down :D (HINT: order from Red Leaf Tea)
