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!

Fake matcha… sad day!

I wouldn’t call it fake matcha, because matcha in Japanese and Chinese simply means fine green tea powder. But matcha as a specific term now means the finest form of this kind of powder. It is worth noticing, though, many Asian products labeled as “matcha” are not matcha in the most real sense.

If I get my hands of any of this, I may try your ‘matcha milk tea’ idea’. I guess that’s basically like a matcha latte?
