Organic Matcha tea
Vitacost Certified Organic Pure Matcha Green Tea Powder - Non-GMO - 1.75 oz (50 g) 5 157 164
pleasant, smooth, rich taste I just started drinking matcha. This is the only brand besides Starbucks I've had. I really like this one even more than SB. It's mild, nutty, and smooth tasting. I warm up some rice or coconut milk, mix in the matcha and a little honey. A really nice pick me up vs. coffee.
MATCHA GREEN TEA POWDER ORGANIC/VITACOST BRAND I really like this matcha green tea powder. I mostly add it to my morning smoothie and I like the effect I feel after drinking my smoothie. Nothing jittery like coffee and a nice clean taste. I've tried it in hot tea and cold drinks as well and I am hooked. Ordering my fifth order now.
My favorite afternoon pick me up Love this matcha..I add a little bit of stevia and some vanilla extract and it makes the perfect afternoon iced green tea. I honestly did not know what to expect when I purchased this product but I'm sold and I've also got my sister in law drinking it as well! I enjoy it hot with a couple of drops of lemon essential oil and some agave. It has replaced coffee for me! I add a scoop of this powder to smoothies. Actually, I forgot I had it and have only used it twice so I will start using it again. I like the taste of it. Good price for Organic in a larger size then was available in my local store.
Doesn't Dissolve Well - Tried Everything It just ends up tasting super powdery because the powder just doesn't dissolve. I've tried hot water, hot milk, whisking, blending, blending withe gelatin protein - NOTHING worked to make it not taste like I was just drinking the powder floating in liquid or sinking to the bottom, Very disappointing, I read several reviews that complained about the product not dissolving. While this is true, I think of it as the mother of the tea like the mother in Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV). Consuming both provides the most benefits. In addition, I found that if I swirl the cup, prior to sipping, it is almost completely unnoticeable and almost all of it is consumed by the time you reach the bottom. I use Cinnamon flavored stevia to sweeten the four glasses of ACV that I drink on a daily basis. It tastes like apple pie...YUM!!!
Makes a good Chai Tea Latte I'd never tried matcha before so I have nothing to compare this product to. That said, I've been drinking this almost every day by making what I call a Matcha Green Tea Chai Latte - I heat unsweetened vanilla almond milk, add some xylitol or stevia to it, a scoop of the matcha powder and about 1/4 tsp. of Chinese 5 Spice. I whisk it until it's hot and foamy and enjoy it. Not sure about the health benefits it proclaims to have, but it tastes good and it agrees with my digestive system!
