Magus Brands recently sent me a box of their new Matchasticks to try out and I have to say, I’m loving them. They’re unsweetened, filled only with organic ceremonial grade matcha from Japan. Unlike the lower grade matcha you see in most sticks, this is top notch stuff! The color is brilliant green and the matcha has a naturally sweet flavor that is remarkably similar to my favorite matcha from DoMatcha.
These sticks are exactly what I’ve been looking for when I travel, the only trouble is that the amount of matcha in each packet varies a little, anywhere from 2.2-3g per stick. I find that if the amount happens to be closer to 2.2g I sometimes need a little more than one stick for a standard size 16.9 ounce water bottle. This leaves me with enough matcha for a 7 day trip, instead of the full 10 days and I need to secure the open package with a binder clip until I’m ready to use it the next day. A little bit of an inconvenience, but so far the best option I’ve found for my needs.
