I love love this Matcha tea. When I first tried matcha a couple years ago I had to admit I did it because it was popular for antioxidant and the mental boost. I hated the flavor (it was also a different brand). Then I tried loose tea which I loved it and found that Tealyra has many more options. I gave matcha the second tried and got the cheapest one which I still liked it, not so much the flavor but the effect in brain. Then it was addictive and I decided to try this version. Wow!!!! flavor and great boost in your brain, what else you need? This is great tea with great flavor, this is what you need to have every single day to be successful in life and happy.

I love the flavor of this tea. Strong umami flavor with no bitterness whatsoever. However, it does not foam like other ones (e.g. samurai matcha). Therefore, I’m giving it 4 stars.

This is the best Matcha I've ever tried, and I've gone through a few. No hint of bitterness, nice and rounded smooth flavour. The problem with Matcha is once you've tried good quality ceremonial, you can't go back to drinking the cheaper stuff because it tastes nasty and bitter. I'l be ordering more of this to get our day off to a good start.....

Ce matcha est délicieux même addictif! Environ 30 minutes après avoir consommé on se sent plus relax ma blonde et moi, assez pour avoir le goût d'en reprendre encore après le souper. J'ai aussi moins de goût de manger des cochonneries entre les repas. C'est ma 6ieme journée que j'en prend et ma libido a augmentée! Je ne pensais pas que l'effet du matcha était si rapide sur le sentiment de bien-être. à plus.

J'adore ce thé Matcha. J'en ai goûté plusieurs et d'un aspect qualité prix c'est le meilleur. Il est peut-être plus dispendieux que les autres, mais il en vaut l’achat. Il est d'un beau vert éclatant. Il est goûteux. Sa classification organique est un plus! On peut immédiatement voir qu'il s'agit de qualité. Selon moi, si vous voulez déguster un thé matcha, selon moi, il est préférable d'acheter de la qualité. Vous apprécierez mieux votre expérience de dégustation.

This matcha tea is what it says it is, Premium ceremonial quality. It has a very mellow taste can be bitter if you add too much. I purchased this for help losing belly fat...too soon to tell. I think it does up my metabolism a little. My workouts are more sweaty so we will see if any results show after some time. I make a 1/2 teaspoon serving in a demi cup. Use the bamboo whisk to make it frothy.

I received the matcha and immediately took a bit and examined it under sunlight. Beautiful green color and fine texture!

I whisked up a bowl and sipped it...very good taste.

This is very good quality matcha for a great price, I recommend it.
