I’m a big matcha fan and the bloom matcha is fantastic. I really like that they’ve blended lots of flavours into their matcha’s (not this one but the others). It makes their products really individual. This absolute matcha is very clean and pure and makes a fantastic matcha lattei’m also a big fan of the little spoon that it comes with – a heaped spoonful is the perfect portion for me. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone keen to try and alternative caffeine fix.
I drink green tea every day and have done for many years. I have a number of serious health issues and so can tell you that i do not find green tea a cure all. I drink it because i enjoy the taste and i do not like ordinary black tea at all. So i looked forward to this matcha, it is pleasant to drink but really i am hoping for the precious anti-oxidants to have a real and noticeable effect on my health. Meanwhile i think drinking this adds to my list of palatable drinks, and i drink each cup really hoping it will bring an upturn in my health. I am being honest because i am getting weary of all the miraculous cures or otherwise crazy claims made for superfoods. I eat a ton of blueberries for example, and can detect no help for my health, but i eat them because i like them and also because you have to try, and who knows i might turn a corner if i keep adding in the best foods i can afford. If i think this matcha has a positive effect i will come back and say, meanwhile i drink it because i like it.

An interesting opportuni-tea. Green tea has been imbibed for centuries in japan, both in ceremonial contexts and for itspurported health-giving properties. The nhs uk website includes an interesting article(‘green tea : the elixir of life or just hype?’) which gives a balanced view about the possiblebenefits of drinking matcha regularly based on available research. It’s worth taking time to read. I’ve tried this particular product for the purpose of a review five times; whisking the prescribed amountinto hot (but not boiling) water. It has a curiously creamy texture and looks a little bit like pond weedin the bowl due to its vivid green colour. It tastes a tad bitter in a new-mown grass kind-of way. Maybe my senses are playing tricks on me but i experienced a very slightlyfishy smell and taste going on in the background. I’d be interested if any other reviewers did too?if you’re a believer you’ll doubtless love it.
Great pre-work out energy booster. I’ve tried matcha from other sellers but this one is by far the nicest one i’ve had. The cheaper brands matcha tends to taste very bitter and is hardly palatable. Bloom uses the finest organic ‘ceremonial’ grade matcha and you can certainly taste the difference. It’s nice and smooth with an earthy flavour. I normally i drink it as a shot whisked with a small amount of hot water, or add it to fresh juices, or lately i’ve been mixing it with my porridge. Since i started drinking it my skin complexion has definitely improved. It also gives you a nice energy boost when you need it without the caffeine jitters. Perfect pre- workout drink, takes your workout to the next level. Now want to try other flavours too.
Great quality – would purchase again. I’ve had this for around 2 months now and there is still quite a bit left – bearing in mind i drink this every other day using one scoop. The spatula that comes with it is really helpful, and you only need the smallest amount.
BLOOM Absolute Matcha (30g) : As a long term “traditional” green tea drinker, i was not convinced about matcha. Having persevered and tried a few different brands, this was the one that converted me. A really smooth green tea, much like a good quality dragonwell leaf green tea – very refreshing and uplifting. Really nice in the afternoon and where i used to find making it a bit of a pain, i’m now beginning to enjoy the pause it builds in to the day to day busyness.
