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.

Not the highest quality of matcha even for culinary standards since the color is a darker green color compared to the gold standard of a a vibrant green.

For those getting into matcha, it might be worth it to get just to learn what lower quality matcha taste like before moving over to the higher quality Japanese matcha.

If you don't drink matcha or equate it to Starbucks matcha, this would be slightly lower grade than Starbucks as the color is a darker.

I believe you have not tasted the greatness of matcha until you've tried a quality ceremonial grade!

Quote from tieuqui :
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.
At least you got your 2 cents worth through personal experience.

Quote from lil7311 :
Matcha is translated and pronounced in Chinese. It's means grounded tea or powered tea. They were introduced into japan 800 years ago from China.
800 years ago to the day. It was on January 13th, 1221 that matcha was introduced to Japan

I just bought the same size organically claimed matcha at costco for $20. grown in California but at least you have a better chance of regulation.

Quote from Chinatownsteel :
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.
so, what is your recommendation? Thanks.

Quote from magic168 :
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...
One of the articles posted here listing why japanese matcha was "better" stated they hand grind it in the dark.

If you don't drink matcha or equate it to Starbucks matcha, this would be slightly lower grade than Starbucks as the color is a darker.

I'd say comparable with starbucks given the starbucks matcha is a blend of matcha and sugar which will affect color. If you try to go "sugar free" they end up giving you 1-4 squirts of the davinci sugar free syrups (typically vanilla unless you specify otherwise) so it's still not truly sugar free(given sugar is in the powder). As to the taste. If you are drinking it with protein powder it's a non issue...you are not going to even taste it although it will make the drink interesting colors. With a latte using either almond milk, powdered milk or good ole cow milk will mellow the flavor ALOT as opposed to people drinking straight matcha and water. If you add in some real vanilla syrup and maybe some cinnamon you are on the way to a good matcha latte. I use a cheap milk frother to make mine both hot and cold and all the bubbles will also affect the flavor (don't ask me how) but with protein powder made it taste a little more like a milkshake.

To the people yelling "get ceremonial grade"....you are being silly...you don't use ceremonial grade for shakes and latte's....you use it when you actually are going to make matcha tea the old fashioned way and ALL you are going to taste is the matcha. Culinary grade is exactly that...it's meant to be used in foods and drinks along with other things. You also don't learn how to drive a stick in a Ferrari/BMW etc. You get some starter car for that...same principle here.
