I have been drinking this matcha these past two days thanks to The Tea Spot and I must say I am happy I had the chance. I have had several different types and grades of matcha and find this one best suited for homemade matcha latte’s. I simply used heated milk, a little sweetener, and about one teaspoon of matcha. It is such an easy recipe and completely adjustable to your liking. I found it to be very satisfying. The natural sweetness of the matcha came through first and strongest. I also noticed mild vegetal notes. The matcha seems great for making speciality drinks and I’d venture to say even matcha infused ice cream. I would recommend better packaging that would help contain the matcha better. If drinking this in traditional fashion I would consider it a nice starter matcha.
Matcha Green Tea
Our Matcha Green Tea is unique in that it’s made from Shizuoka green tea. Shizuoka is a major tea producing region of Japan, known for its incredible sencha teas. Our matcha tea is also uniquely processed using the SHIMA process (Super Heating In Moisture Atmosphere), a special steaming treatment that uses much higher temperatures than the traditional steaming method, before it is ground into a fine green tea powder.
This high temperature method of curing the leaves makes our matcha tea powder resilient to heat and greatly increases its ability to maintain fresh color, taste, aroma, and quality. Thus, our matcha powder will maintain its quality for a longer period of time than other matcha teas, making it more versatile in meeting your needs.
Our matcha is perfect for traditional matcha tea preparation, as done in the Japanese tea ceremony, and can also be added to a water bottle and shaken with cold water for cold tea brewing. It is also great as an ingredient in popular beverages such as a green tea latte or green tea smoothie as well as confections, green tea ice cream, and other foods. It will become a staple in your kitchen at such a great price.
