For those that like the overly chemical flavor of American processed tea (as another reviewer here recommends) - this is not for you.

In Japan, you sit down at a sushi bar and this is what you are served. While there are better brands and more expensive qualities, Maeda-En is so smooth, flavorful and makes your mind and body feel wonderful. It's my favorite matcha brand and I have tried a plethora of the more expensive, fancy ones. In Japan, you will find that simplicity and quality don't always correlate to expensive.

There are 3 "grades" of this brand's Matcha:

- Ceremonial grade (highest and most expensive, reserved for special tea ceremonies)
- "Shiki" gold can which is a universally good quality drinking matcha.
- Culinary grade (lower grade, great for baking, cooking)

This "Shiki" grade is priced in between the Ceremonial and Culinary grades. I've been buying this brand of matcha for years from the Japanese markets, before the matcha "Trend" exploded.

Open the jar and snip open the silver packet containing the matcha. Then dump the matcha into the jar and toss the packet.
Authentic, tasty, and full of polyphenols and antioxidants. There really is no need to buy the ceremonial grade which is overly pricey.

I've been putting two tablespoons of DO Matcha 2nd Harvest into my smoothies every morning for about 6 months. I ran out the other day and while I was waiting for Amazon to deliver more, I purchased this brand so I would have something in the mean time. Well, this gave me way more energy output then DO Matcha. I was more productive all day. Only problem was it was harder to go to sleep at the end of the day. I never even thought about strength of Matcha Teas until now. I'm going to only use half the amount of Maeda-En from now on. But - it tastes as good as DO Matcha, it's cheaper than DO Matcha and it give you more kick. I think one tablespoon of this stuff in my shake will be suffice. Whereas, DO Match takes two tablespoons and is more expensive. But in a shake you can't taste the difference - they both taste great.

This is a good blend for the price. It is not top of the line and a little pricey, but I enjoy it. It is not bitter, as many matcha options are on amazon. I have bought this particular brand a few times, and will probably go back to it, as long as they stop raising the price.

I'm really obsessed with Jamba Juice's matcha green tea smoothie. I no longer have the time to make a trip to the store (like 5 times a week) so making my own sounded like a great idea. I actually stumbled upon this product while I was in Korean Town, the price was about $8 there. Most off-line Asian grocers are a lot cheaper when you're looking for something like this. But if you don't live near them, I suppose this is the way to go. Anyway this matcha green tea powder really makes perfect home versions of Starbuck's green tea frappuccino, or the ones of JB's. There are higher-end grade powdered green tea out there, but this is perfect for numerous recipes. Oh, and I agree with the previous reviewer about how the little goes a LONG way. :)

This is one tea that is worth buying.

There is one good reason why you should get this tea. Its good. And its drinkable. That is a characteristic of a good matcha green tea.

This green tea is savory and the price is great.

Many of the "fake" companies state that they are organic, that they are better quality, have fancy advertising and logos, many random 5 star reviews. The thing is that the tea does not taste good they taste like grass.

So far, this is one of the Matchas I like better. It has a good flavor with no noticeable bitterness or grassiness I've encountered with some other brands. The only thing is I've seen this sold cheaper at my local Asian supermarket, so I'd recommend checking around first. It's expensive, but you get what you pay for.

I received this today, in a padded envelope. The tea itself has been bagged in an airtight packet and canned within the visible packaging, so it's very well preserved. It has a lovely green shade and smells wonderful.

However, it is bitter by comparison to ceremonial grade matcha. It did whisk nicely into a moderate froth, with the aroma and appearance I love in a good tea. The taste is less floral and sweet, *but* it is universal as opposed to ceremonial.

I will drink it as part of my chado practice, and I will also use it to make matcha ice cream. For my purposes, it's great. However, if you're seeking tea ceremony flavour, go for the ceremonial grade :)
