Midori Spring Organic Japanese Matcha – Tea Powder : Culinary grade matcha that’s higher quality than some ceremonial varieties

Hi everyone,i have been having this beautiful matcha powder for the last few days and i love it, i mix the quantity recommended on the package in a fruits and veg smoothie it add that green tea taste at the end of it its just yummy now i do not doubt any of the benefits that you can get from it but i don’t think i have used it long enough to see a good improvement also it needs to be part of a balanced diet to get as much as possible from this product which i am starting to do. I it for sure really easy to use my next move is to try baking it and i will let you know how it goes but definitely recommend this product, i have purchased it with a discount and will pay full price for it.

The health benefits of this product are amazing.

Tastes pleasant in orange juice. This is the second packet of matcha that i have purchased. I have been pleasantly surprised with the positive effects i have experienced. I have is daily every morning, i have one spoon of the matcha powder with half a glass of orange juice. The juice turns green and there isn’t much difference in the taste apart from it’s a bit powdery. I have got used to taking the matcha and it is now part of my routine to sip on it in the morning whilst getting ready. I definitely notice the tired feeling i used to get comes back if i don’t have the matcha in the morning. I like that i am drinking something healthy and seeing the result.

This item arrived promptly and was well packaged. On the rear of the packaging the producer explains the origins of the tea and a suggestion for how to prepare it correctly. This culinary grade of matcha is best suited for use in drinks such as smoothies or can be added to cakes, but is probably not fine enough for making into a tea. If you have not had matcha tea before you may be wondering what it tastes like. This is only my opinion, and this may vary from person to person, but in my experience it does not taste anything like the green tea from which it is derived. It is more like ground up grass, and is definitely not something i would take if it wasn’t for the nutritional benefits it offers. The taste is hidden somewhat when used in a fruit smoothie. Please note that i have received this item either for free or at a significant discount in return for an impartial review. I always point out any negatives i encounter during the review process, and if i experience any issues with this product in future then i will update this review accordingly.

Improved skin slightly after a few days but no pick me up focus. I took this matcha tea for the calming focusing effects which i didn’t get however with this matcha tea my skin still felt slightly hydrated, i saw slight improvement in my skin after drinking (i use essential oils for my skin as i get more noticeable effects on my skin) but didn’t get the focusing and calming benefit that i usually take matcha tea for which is why i left it in the cupboard after few uses. I followed the instructions as 1 tsp didn’t give me any noticeable effects so from the instructions i increased it to 2 tbsp, i could see my skin complexion/pigmentation slightly improved however i can’t take it in such big amounts like this as this makes me lose weight (also its a diuretic) as i’m trying to sustain and put weight on as i’m slim enough, this matcha didn’t have the effect like others but this company’s other matcha tea ‘ceremonial premium matcha’ did give me the calm, focusing effect but this one i was waiting for a pick me up which didn’t quite happen unfortunately.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • I feel so much better after drinking this first thing in the morning 🙂
  • Culinary grade matcha that’s higher quality than some ceremonial varieties
  • Very good for you

Very pleased with the matcha powder. It arrived quickly, good packaging and it tastes delicious (haven’t tried baking with it. Yet) if only it was cheap as chips – but it wouldn’t be so special then.

Good quality product, used it to bake some cakes.

One thought on “Midori Spring Organic Japanese Matcha – Tea Powder : Culinary grade matcha that’s higher quality than some ceremonial varieties

  1. Culinary grade matcha that’s higher quality than some ceremonial varieties. I’ve been drinking a mug of matcha tea most mornings for nearly a year. I like the taste of it, plus it makes me feel calmly alert for the day. I normally buy ceremonial matcha, the grade of matcha that’s intended for drinking mixed with hot water. This particular matcha is culinary grade, which means that it’s primarily intended for adding to smoothies or for baking with as it’s less fine. I’ve found, however, that it’s of a higher quality than some of the ceremonial grade varieties i’ve tried. It’s not quite as vibrant in colour as some of the best varieties, but you can still drink it in hot water without it tasting bitter. It whisks into the water well, i like the taste, and you still get the benefits of drinking matcha without having to pay as much. I can definitely recommend it.

    1. I feel so much better after drinking this first thing in the morning 🙂. I have been a regularly drinker of matcha tea for sometime now and i can definitely tell the benefits. I have a mug of matcha tea every morning for his health benefits and i live it. I used to start my morning with a cup of normal black tea with milk. However after waking up feeling very groggy, dehydrated and headachy. I started drinking this matcha tea in the morning with my breakfast and i feel so much better for doing so. I’m also pretty sure that this tea does help with metabolism as i seem to have lost a little weight since drinking this tea and i haven’t made any other changes to my dietit comes in a plastic pouch as pictured, you cut the top, and can easily spoon the matcha from the pouch, after use you just seal the bag with the zip lock, this makes it easy to store and keeps the tea nice and fresh. I just add about half a tea spoon to a large mug, add a small amount of cold water, stir, then add the boiling water. I give it a good stir and it seems to mix very well which is probably due to it been such a fine powder. However if you take a long time drinking your tea then it’s worthwhile stirring it again when you get halfway down otherwise some of the matcha powder can settle at the bottom and would result in wastage.

    1. Very pleased with this product and great taste, mixes really easily. I’m always without energy in the morning, but after matcha green tea drink i’m full of natural energy boost. I’m a matcha fan, especially late matcha you just mix with warm milk and you have an amazing drink. I’m baking muffins, pancakes or blending smoothies. • vegan-friendly• organic (soil association accredited)• gluten free• high in caffeine• high in l-theanine• rich in antioxidants• natural energy boost, without the crash• detoxes the body• increases metabolism and burns calories. It’s a bit pricey if you use every day, but it’s worth it, if you want to live healthier life.

    Not quite as premium as some others but worth the price as you get quite a bit.

    Everytime i visit my japanese friend, her mother always make us some japanese tea. From what she told me and the way they grow matcha green tea in their hometown, they handpick the leaves, then they are steamed, dried and ground into green colour powder, it makes up matcha green tea. As they are powder, instead of using tea bag, the entire powder will be added into hot boiling water so we can enjou all of the tea powder. I did some research online on its benefits. It turns out matcha tea is so powerful, as its incredible antioxidant concentration and level of that is about 17 times more than that of blueberries. High antioxidant concentration is just one of the many of goodies of matcha green tea. Other benefits of matcha green tea such as helping to reduce the chance to have cancer, like broccoli. Some articles i read say matcha tea can improve circulation and blood pressure. What interests me the most is all the articles say matcha tea helps with weight loss and it is due to matcha tea can increase the rate of thermogenesis by about 10 percent during resting periods.

    The green tea was very delicious. I was very excited to receive it as i’ve always wanted to make my own matcha beverages. It was so well packaged and so tasty. I would highly recommend it.

      1. Matcha tea is very high in antioxidants. I use it both as a tea and i also add it to my mixture of oils and use it as a face mask. I also tried it in a smoothie and it gave it a nice green colour. This tea came in a pouch with a sealable top. You would need to use a whisk of some sort to mix the powder in hot water in order to make a tea. You also do not need a lot of powder to make the tea. This powder is very fine and mixes very well. I haven’t tried baking with it yet but i’ve seen a delicious recipe for ice cream and i am definitely going to try it. I am quite sensitive to caffeine and i don’t have that jittery feeling after drinking matcha tea.

    1. I add it to my apple cider vinegar and water. I just brought my drink along for a hot steamy ride in the car and it was very refreshing. I felt rejuvenated after the drink. Just a smooth drink with calming properties. I just scooped out two teaspoons and added it to my drink. Then just shook to container.

    1. Very yummy for lattes and smoothies. This matcha is meant for baking or mixing in stuff. So i tried it in a latte with almond milk and it was delicious. I also put it in a smoothie and that was also yummy. I guess this isn’t the fine matcha you drink by itself, but i rarely do that anyway. If you want the best price on matcha that you make lattes with or use for baking, it’s a good idea to go with this one. I received a discount on this. My review is of my whole opinion.

    The thing that really appealed to me about trying this was the powerful antioxidants that it provides. It has so many health benefits and after having it for a few days i do feel i think clearer and i have given my body goodness. I haven’t yet tried any of the recipes, i would prefer to use the raw powder and not cook it. I have used it in smoothies with sweet fruits and i don’t feel the taste is overpowering at all. I am always on the look out for high quality health supplements and i like this product. I was given the opportunity to try this product at a discount in exchange for giving a review here.
