Ceremonial grade matcha tea is being compared to kitchen or cooking grade. There is a huge difference. Ceremonial matcha tea is rich in taste. Try to compare superior, premium and ceremonial matcha tea together. They are not the same in taste, flavor, and color. Even with the price.
There is also a difference when a product says ceremonial organic grade than the ceremonial grade. The place where it came from is also considered. This is my first ceremonial grade that can be made into Koicha or Usucha. Great for people who want to change their coffee routine to matcha tea. I started with a premium grade of koicha matcha tea. Though, I still love my first matcha tea compared to the ceremonial grade.
I purchased the sample of 5g for the price of £5. Now I check again, they change it and it’s less than $5. Hurrah! Matcha tea beginner’s who wants to try matcha tea should be on the lookout for samples. In case, your taste buds do its choosing for you. You may not anticipate the taste of it at the beginning. You will love it once you consumed all of it.
This product is one of their best sellers. The reason I bought their sample. I opened it and smelled the bursting aroma. It smelled good. I made a simple drink without whisking it. Check the picture above. The tea is rich, aromatic and smooth. It has warm notes to it. Personally, it is delicious, sweet and worth drinking over and over again. The great thing about drinking matcha tea is that it gives you a relaxing feeling you want. I like this matcha tea.
According to the product description stated on the site, Superior Matcha has a smooth, delicate taste with layered sweetness and bitterness. I would say the description fits the product perfectly.
Personally, this matcha tea is strong. It gives out that green tea smell and a bitter kick when I drink it. When I traditionally mix it with small increments of cold water before the hot water. The color of the liquid turns to green, not vibrant green.
Mix it properly if you do not want to end up drinking a bitter matcha tea drink. I like it a lot. Here is my short story on how I came to love matcha and all its goodness.
My sister went to Japan last December and brought with her Koicha Matcha Tea from Uji, Kyoto Japan. It was so good that I instantly became curious about this powdered tea. My fixation drove me to start my own matcha tea blog.
Matcha Tea has changed my lifestyle. Officially, I am a matcha tea convert. Goodbye, coffee! Being not totally equipped with some matcha tools that I need to succeed in mixing matcha the right way. I just went ahead mix match with cold and hot water.
Compared to my first matcha which was Matcha Tea from Uji-Kyoto, Japan. (I consumed everything before I realize I forgot to take a picture). The flavor, aroma, and color of the matcha tea were different. This matcha tea powder from GoldMatcha has a darker color. The texture is smooth and fine. The taste is really usucha which is good for drinking.
Overall, their superior matcha tea is great. I would it a total score of 8/10. This is good for ceremony tea practice. For people who want to experience less expensive matcha.
I tasted this candy last week and I find it really good. This Matcha crunch product is made from Japan. A company called Bourbon. I checked their website and it has the Japanese and English version. It is a good sign that this product came from a legitimate company that has standards.
This chocolate treat is crunchy and tasty. No wonder they call it matcha crunch. The thick chocolate cover makes this unique to someone who wants to enjoy matcha and chocolate at the same time. Someone like me!
Inside it is a matcha flavored creme with rice crispies. Pop it in your mouth and you will definitely be wanting for more. I love matcha and chocolate too. I have the best of both on what I love on a candy.
What is more to ask? Concern about calories? It is only 30 kcal for one chocolate. The ingredients are artificial and contain milk, nuts, wheat, and soybeans. It would not harm you. Though it will put fat on your love handles and be there as long as you work out.
There are a lot of snacks that have matcha filling. Try to read the labels first before digging in. Not every package has natural flavors. For some who have allergies especially to nuts. This chocolate crunch may not be for you.
