100% Japanese Matcha Green Tea.
For one 12oz to 16oz serving: Blend 1-2 teaspoons of DMatcha and a small amount of liquid with a spoon to make a smooth paste. You can use hot or cold milk as well as vanilla soy, rice or almond milk. Add more liquid and sweeten as desired. Try adding chai spices, vanilla or white chocolate syrups for delicious variations!
The saying goes "you're get what you pay for". Matcha tea is expensive but I find this Do Matcha to be the best quality for the price.
I'm not going to start with the endless benefits of matcha drinking (the art of chado), to know that, google it or read brainready's article written about it way before matcha became popular to te mainstream.
I am a natural practitioner, tea artisan, business owner and herbalist and DO matcha is the ONLY matcha I recommend to my patients. I used to sell it in my store as well.
It's the best out there but warning; once you get used to drinking this, all other matcha will taste grainy and you'll find yourself shocked at the brownish colour when in fact it SHOULD be luminescent green like this one. It's silky and smooth. If you have a difficult time drinking it at first, cheat and add a touch of sugar or honey, stevia, whichever you prefer and gradually reduce that.
There's two ways to drink it. Koicha or ususha (I'm probly not spelling that correctly lol). One is thick and strong such as how do matcha's directs on the ceremonial grade. 1/4-1/2 tsp (or 1-2 scoops in your chasuku -bamboo scoop used in chado) in 1/4 cup HOT (not boiling) water and use a WHISK or CHASAN (bamboo whisk used for chado). Put the matcha in your small bowl or chawan (bowl used in chado) and the add the water and whisk alternating zig zags and around the bowl, until light green froth covers the top. Drink immed.
The other way is to make it more like a tea with lots of water and the same amt of matcha. This is not the traditional way to drink matcha.
**its important to remember the same principle apply as when making tea. Too hot of water releases too much tannins and makes it bitter. So check the proper temps for your tea and play around to find the adjustment that suits you.
If you're drinking this in smoothies or shakes or in food, I suggest you get the 2nd harvest. You get more for the price because it's not as strong. (I do find second harvest too grainy for my taste to drink as koicha tho) It's a sin as far as I'm concerned to put something this high of quality in a blender lol.
A previous review stated he found it grainy.... All I can say is you're mixing it with a fork. Problem solved.
A little research into the proper way to drink matcha and soon it will be a lifestyle not a drink (as it should be)
Lastly, I'll add that Do matcha come from the birth place of matcha where a Tibetan monk brought it over to be used prior to meditation. They knew thousands of years ago what our "modern" science is just figuring out. The high l-theanine content helps us be calm and concentrated with extra alphas waves and reduced beta waves (the stressed, nervous, hyper ones). The family estates that produce these products, it's the center of their existence and if you're sensitive to energy, you'll feel it with this. How much love and respect goes in to what we revere as a drink.
(Please forgive my babbling. I am obviously very passionate about my matcha.... 11 years drinking it now and best thing I ever did for myself and my family and once I tried DO, I can't drink anything else.)
I love matcha green tea, it is very healthy. The taste is a bit grassy/earthy and for some people it make take a little getting used to. Also it doesnt mix perfectly well so it will be a little grainy. I usually mix it with a fork for about 20 seconds and its ready to drink.
