I currently use this exact brand and have been happy with taste/results. The tin is nice because it has a section where you can scrape your teaspoon to ensure you always get a level teaspoon of matcha. I've tried it both in a latte with almond milk, davinci sugar free vanilla syrup, cinnamon and some real vanilla extract as well as just adding a teaspoon to protein powder and water to give my protein drink a boost.

A while back I posted a very similar deal that was the same brand but came in a bag instead of this tin so if you liked that you'll like this one....and vice versa.

I thought after you open the container it's only good for about a month, not much more.

Know that there are two grades: 1 Culinary, which is used in baked goods like muffins, and can be used to make matcha drink, and 2 Ceremonial, which is the good one to use in matcha drink, and is more expensive. Lastly, it doesn't take as much powder as you might thing to make a cup of match. Like a teaspoon to make a whole big cup. It's bitter alone and wants to be sweetened with sugar. My understanding is Japanese brands are the only ones you want to bother with. I'm not a pro, but I'm giving you decent info.

Quote from RussianBytes :
How does it compare to Starbucks match drink (green tea frapacuccino)?
I believe for starbucks matcha lattes they use the lowest priced japanese matcha they can source and pump it full of sugar in order to mask the bad flavors.This is close but it will be much more difficult to mask the terrible flavor.

That's a nice generalization which is about as accurate overall as me saying "All cigars taste the same as Cubans." I've made matcha pudding using chia seed, almond milk and this matcha and I can't say it tasted like dirt to me..then again I don't recall eating dirt.
Oh, you were THAT kid in kindergarden.

If you put it into a clear container just keep it out of the sun and it should be good for awhile.

Thank you OP. I bought 5. With my subscribe and save it came to $14.42 each. I've never tried this brand, but glad to see their satisfaction guarantee.

I agree with Thund3rcat, the Ito En brand that Costco used to carry 2 or 3 years ago offered a great quality to price ratio.

Quote from ansoni :
The whole not grown in Japan thing is just stupid. First off, you wouldn't be getting tea leaves from regions that saw any radiation after the 2011 tsunami. Secondly, this is a chinese product. I would never buy matcha from China because the tea plants uptake significant quantities of heavy metals from the soil. While this is generally safe in tea that is steeped as a whole leaf, these teas should absolutely not be ingested.

I have to admit that the marketing is a clever way to convince stupid people that they have a superior product, but you should never drink Chinese matcha.
That's not an issue of Chinese tea. That's an issue of how much you can pay. Expensive teas are grown on hills of 2,000 meters elevation or higher in mountainous regions in Yunnan, Anhui, Fujian, Zhejiang Province. There's no pollution or no heavy metals issue at all in those areas (since it is so up high)

To be honest, I have never found those expensive tea leaves in the US. It's kinda funny that they barely output their expensive tea leaves since the limited yield every year and huge domestic demand. Same as hundreds years ago, when Europeans started crazy about their tea leaves, they just keep the best stuff for their own.

Also, in China, people barely use expensive tea leaves to make matcha. I assume for them, it's a waste to do so.

Why clear? I'd think you'd want it in an opaque container so less light got in. Got some info for me?

People like showing off the vibrancy of the matcha. So they put them into glass air sealed jars or something of the like and the sun causes the matcha to darken to an almost yellow tone I have not ever collected enough of the bleached matcha in order to try and see if it has been compromised sorry.

Maybe referring to quality? Just a guess.
Well they said "real", so they were referring to some kind of designation, and if they weren't then they're using exaggerated speech to mislead people.

Not here to pick a fight, so take whatever info you want from this, as I drink a lot of matcha and I consider myself fairly well versed in it.

People here are correct -- matcha originated in China, but what people currently refer to matcha is that of the type produced in Japan and they are the standard by which matcha is compared against. Just like if you drink puerh, you're probably looking at Chinese teas as the gold standard.

The differences between "cheap" matcha and "expensive" matcha:

- The finer matchas are stone ground and it takes a long time to grind because you can't grind it quickly. If you grind it quickly, it introduces heat because of the friction, and that changes the tea and its flavor. The cheaper it is, the more likely it's not stone ground.

- The care of the tea leaves during the growing process...how precise are they with shading, the timing, the care, etc. You're paying for that. It's kinda like the famed "Kobe beef" that's massaged. Japanese folks are obsessive in certain things, and tea growing is one of those.

I've paid up to $75 for 20g of "good matcha" and I've also had pretty cheap matcha from Taiwan and everything in between. You can tell the quality by how crazy green it is and how fine it's ground. If it's brownish green and gritty, you've got awful quality matcha.

Some brands you want to visit for good matcha -- SazenTea, Yunomi, Ippodo...

Cancelled my order... don't want fake matcha 😮
It's not exactly fake matcha. More like lower tier matcha that is fine for cooking and lattes as others have mentioned.

Would like to add my 2 cents -- I bought this. You know when ppl tell you to spend more money on a higher quality version, but if we did that all the time, we'd be broke? So I bought this a couple months ago...and regret it. Tastes like...nothing.
