Top Customer Reviews
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.
- 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.
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.
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 :)
