I use matcha green tea on a daily bases, usually adding it to smoothies and have found that prices for it vary so was eager to give this one a go. The look, smell and taste are the same as the more expensive brand that i have tried and with this i have got more so i am very happy with that. Matcha green tea is very high in antioxidents which help protect cells from damage so in my opinion the more we have the better, it also increases energy so better to be taken early in the day rather than late afternoon or evening. The container is sturdy so no risk of knocking it over and losing its precious content. Inside it was foil wrapped to keep it nice and freshthe nutitional content was on par with my usual so i think i will be switching to this particular brand from now on.
Best quality matcha and well worth the price as a little goes a very long way. I have also used it to make matcha ice-cream.

How to make the perfect cup of matcha. First of all i have to say – wow, what packaging, this just reeks of hipster finesse and elegance with its chemistry lab based aesthetic and design. You get a sealed foil pouch (handy for keeping everything fresh and cuts down on the mess) that you are supposed to empty into the tin. Being an all round rebellious type of fellow i didn’t do that at all and just snipped off the top of the bag and shoved my spoon in and got brewing, speaking of which here are some top tips to help you craft a fine beverage:there are two types of brew you can create – usucha (thin matcha) and koicha (thick matcha). I prefer the former so will share those steps. Take a small ceramic bowl and fill it full of hot water, leave it for about 10 minutes to heat it up nicely. Throw away the water and dry the bowl. Measure 70ml of hot water in a measuring cup and leave to the side. Add 1/2 teaspoon of powder to the empty, warm bowl (note sift the powder now so there are no clumps, makes it much easier to froth and tastier).
My search for the best matcha is now over. This matsu matcha has a great flavour. Previously i was only drinking matcha mostly for the health benefits of it / and to keep me awake and focused, however i had to mix it with honey or milk otherwise the taste is not very pleasant. However, one of my colleague at work recommended me to try this matsu matcha and i’m now hooked. It’s not the cheapest matcha by all means, however, the taste is amazing. In terms of the effect, cheaper matcha brands i used to buy before have rather rougher, duller buzz. Matsu on the other hand is like a meditation on a mountain top kind of high – really helps getting my head clear and getting loads of work done. Will definitely be buying more again.
I had been hearing all about the antioxidant health benefits of matcha tea and was very excited to come across this. The meiko is one of the options that matchaeologist offer and it has a wonderful floral undertone which makes it a very pleasant drink. It is of the highest grade (cerimonial grade) and best quality available. I am not a fan of the traditional green tea so was incredibly excited to taste this and actually enjoy the flavour. It gives me a boost in the morning which is even helping me kick my coffee addiction. *i was given the opportunity to review this item in return for honest and objective feedback*.
Matchæologist – Hyperpremium Matcha Green Tea Powder · Highest Quality Ceremonial Grade Artisanal Matcha 20g (Meiko – Full-bodied with Subtle Floral Aromas) : This is an excellent quality matcha. It’s smooth, sweet and vegetal providing and lovely buzz and great feeling of health. It comes in a tin with a foil bag inside. You only get a tiny amount though and spill some when you open the package. The tin keeps it fresh and protected. I would have preferred a larger amount but i drink this daily and need more to keep me going for the month. I got these for a discount but have still parted with my own money and would happily pay full price for them so wouldn’t recommend them otherwise.
