From Pure Matcha

During the Song Dynasty in 11th century China, tea was consumed in powder form. Centuries later this innovative way of drinking black tea has been reinvented with our natural 100% Black tea powder or Black Matcha. Consumed just like traditional Green tea Matcha our Black Matcha is made from the finest Darjeeling and Assam tea leaves of India, and has a robust rich flavor. Higher in natural caffeine than a traditional cup of black tea, rivaling that of a cup of coffee. Except with Black Matcha there is no jittery crash. When you drink Black Matcha you get almost ten times more anti-oxidants and vitamins than a regular cup of tea, where the leaves are thrown away after brewing. Black Matcha is great for a healthy morning wake up.

I’ve been looking for black matcha powders since having one I enjoyed a few months back! I was so excited when I received my 3 tins today! Woot! Woot!

This smells like a creamier-black tea.

After preparing this it looks much like a mocha or latte-type drink.

This tastes just like Assam! The powder dissolved for me perfectly! There is a natural creaminess to this that I really like. I would say this is a medium strength black tasting type tea.

This is a product that is sure to be in high demand!
It’s very good! Lengthier review coming soon to SororiTEA Sisters!

Ooooooh, this sounds gooooood … betcha with some spices you could get a wicked hot chai latte on the go …

I’m tempted to try it with my Chai Spices I got from The Chai Cart!!! :P

@Michelle- I totally agree w/ you, but just buying Tipu’s Instant Chai would be much easier since it’s already blended for you.

On first impression, one would think they were looking at hot cocoa mix. It has the look and smell of it, after all. Sweet yet robust. Only after pouring hot water and whisking the heck out of it, does one find its black tea-ish-ness clear. Of the blended Assam and Darjeeling profiles, the former dominates. This is more malty than muscatel, but it also possesses a nutty middle and a sweet finish. Astringency is thankfully mild but still there. Only gripe I have is that this clumps quite easily, a pre-sift with a strainer is required. Other than that, a very good new take on an old school form.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this!

Dry, it looks a lot like hot chocolate mix. But it certainly doesn’t taste like it.

This is one seriously bold black tea. Very robust. Next time I prepare this one, I think I will have it in the morning… not that I can’t use a waking up now. This is GUSTO in liquid form.

Cofftea

Haha that’s exactly what I think of Tipu’s instant chai when I make it w/ water- but then again the spices help w/ this one.

Cofftea

*that, not this.

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.
