You would never know the delicious strawberry banana smoothie sitting on my desk this morning was full of incredible health benefits as imparted by matcha green tea powder! Going off the recommended dose, I started with 1/2 teaspoon as I’m caffeine sensitive and would rather try the low dose before the high dose. The scent of the matcha was vibrant and vegetal, just as it should be. The matcha powder had a soft, silky, powdery texture, and the color is jade-like green. It looks like high-quality matcha to every scale I’m familiar with. To be fair, I’ve only ever had flavored matcha before, namely from Red Leaf, but I at least know that “matcha flavor” and I can definitely sense the hint of green tea deliciousness in my smoothie. That said, it’s not a bitter or astringent taste that I’m catching. Not at all. In fact, I get only the sweet of fruit and the green tea taste I was hoping for. The matcha hasn’t taken away from the tastiness of my smoothie at all! And I was worried about that because other green tea I’ve tried has often been astringent or bitter. I don’t get that here!

I’ll have to try this matcha in other ways. I will try it as a latte to compare to my experiences with Red Leaf, for sure. But for now, I’m going to have to give this matcha my seal of approval. It’s delicious, smells wonderful, and the price is amazing for such a large pouch! Gotta say I was quite surprised to find that the pouch was so big! It certainly is a lot of matcha for the price! :)

Loves tea, reading, music, art, video games, roleplaying, and spending time with her wife and daughter. :)

Ask me for a $5 gift cert to Adagio if you’ve never ordered from them!

As for tea, loves flavored black teas, herbals, and good lattes most. Green is hit or miss with me and I haven’t found a white I like yet. I like my tea sweet, no matter how much some tea connoisseurs turn their noses up at me for it. I love trying new teas and I’ll try anything once!

I noticed this elsewhere on the site so I’m going to post a ratings legend as well:

95-100 Favorite; This is one of my favorite teas. I will want to keep this in stock all the time. I will drink a lot of this tea. I’m likely to send samples of this in swaps because I LOVE it and want to SHARE my love of it with you!

90-94 Excellent; Some of the best teas I’ve tried. Delish. I will probably buy more.

80-89 Very Good; I liked it and would like to have it again for sure. I will surely buy it again at some point. Not quite “The best” of any category, but some good stuff to be sure.

70-79 Pretty Good; Maybe it’s just not quite my type of tea or not quite my flavor, but I acknowledge that it’s a good tea. I might drink it again if the mood strikes me. Not very likely to buy it again. May still recommend it to others based on their tastes.

50-69 Okay; I probably won’t buy it again, but will probably finish drinking what I have. It’s not bad. Not good… but not bad. I probably won’t recommend it.

50 or less Meh; I didn’t really enjoy this tea. I won’t buy it again and can’t recommend it.

10-0 I must have really, really hated this tea. It may have killed my puppy or absconded with my cheesecake. I’m pretty sure it killed Professor Xavier.
