3 Tasting Notes
I am a huge fan of Matcha which is a finely hand-ground powder from green tea leaves.
Vitalife Matcha is of very high quality, as is evident by the look, feel, and flavor of the Matcha itself. This is a very strong and bold Matcha, with strong vegetative and somewhat grassy tones to it. It is very thick and rich as a good quality Matcha should be, and stands up fantastically to milk and sweetener if you prefer your Matcha served as a latté. Because the flavor is so strong and intense, this would make a fabulous iced chai latté!
The dried Matcha powder has a brilliant shamrock green color, has a nice finely ground appearance with a soft non-gritty texture. The aroma of the dried leaves as well as the brewed liquor has strong green vegetative overtones, with the scent of fresh tea leaves, and a smooth and mellow earthy quality.
Even though the flavor and experience of this fine Matcha is what I love the most about it, I also love the fact that Matcha is one of the healthiest beverages in the world. I recommend reading Vitalife’s article on the Health Benefits of Matcha on their website to get an idea of exactly how many health benefits Matcha tea has. Delicious, nutritious and at only 56¢ per cup ($15.99 for the entire tin) for a Beginner’s 30g tin of Vitalife Matcha, it is a great value for Matcha as well!
