My son wanted to try matcha with chia today as part of his clean eating/training program as he prepares for a Spartan Trifecta. I only have one serving of KaiMatcha Premium left and I didn’t want to ruin it if the chia didn’t work out well.

While this is extraordinarily inexpensive and really great in lattes, it doesn’t hold a candle to my favorite as a traditional hot whisked matcha. I did add about 1/2 teaspoon of raw honey to each cup since we had just finished a run. By run I mean he ran three miles and I walked and ran one mile. LOL!

It was drinkable and not very bitter but didn’t have the fresh green vibrancy of KaiMatcha. Teavivre says their green tea powder is fried rather than steamed like matcha, so perhaps that is true of this tea as well.

I highly recommend it for lattes, it is really excellent in them, but for a hot cup of matcha with no sweetener, pay the difference if you can and get the great stuff.

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about nine years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
