A few weeks back, I was asked to try out and review Organic Ceremonial Grade Green Tea Matcha from Kiss Me Organics. The ceremonial grade tea has a vibrant green color, slightly sweet flavor and smooth finish. It has 137 times the antioxidants of brewed green tea, and is a mood enhancer. It also helps mental focus.
I normally have review like this done a lot quicker, but it got lost in the Christmas shuffle. I also wanted to use the milk frother (review coming shortly) with it as well before I posted my review. I had some shipping issues with the frother, so it knocked it further back.
For this tea, you only use a little bit because it is very strong. I used barely a teaspoon the first time, and it was almost too strong for me. I’ve since figured out how much I like. You also want to probably use a small whisk in order to make sure it all mixes into the water. I had the best luck with the frother.
I noticed a large taste difference between this and other matcha tea. Since it’s the ceremonial, I found that it has a bright color and stronger taste. Food grade (or less expensive) is a lot paler in color and has a milder taste. I like it, and it’s great if you want something really strong. I just don’t think I could drink it every day. My husband is another story, since he likes it the stronger the better.
Overall, it was very good. It’s strong, so you don’t need to use much. It’s strong, so it might not be for everyone. The only kicker is the price, which is $28 (+ shipping) for only 1.6 ounces. It’s available on Amazon.
