Well, folks, meet your emergancy cooking matcha. I was delighted to replenish my supply with my recent visit to Phildelphia’s Chinatown. It has worked in everything I’ve tried from cupcakes and frosting to matcha based sauses and protein shakes. It even comes with a plastic teaspoon that’s very convienient and tucks right into the side.
But avoid actually drinking it straight unless you’re doing for pure health benefits. In that respect this tea smacks of ash and low standards. I’ve made tolerable “usucha” with hot soy coffee creamer or juice and this matcha when I’d rather choke a bit than diminish the covetable and costly ceremonial stash. For a $15 two pack of 200g, I can live with ashy and non-organic sometimes. So, for usefulness I give it an 8/10. Taste? 3/10. On a good day. With a sugar fix.

I love Japanese teas, whites, pu’erh, and tisanes. I don’t out right dislike any kind of tea; everything gets a fair chance as a gift from the Earth.
Reviewing new teas always makes me a happy frog. Contact me at batrachoidboggle@aol.com or comment on my blog below.
