From Trader Joe's

Hot tea—in all its varieties—brings warmth, health, and a sense of friendly hospitality to the table. Having known this for centuries, the Japanese developed a ritual called Chado—literally “the Way of Tea”—to celebrate the art of this ancient beverage. Central to this ritual is a very special powdered tea called Matcha. Trader Joe’s Matcha Green Tea Latte Mix puts this exceptional tea right at your fingertips, for all your moments—whether casual or ceremonious.

Many of us associate “powdered” beverages with kids’ drinks—Kool-Aid, anyone? But, before you decide that Matcha is not your cup of tea, get this: In contrast to coarsely prepared leaves of tea that are meant for steeping in a bag or infuser, pure Matcha leaves are milled into a fine powder. When whisked into hot water—as ritualized in Chado—this tea-powder dissolves completely, yielding a wholesome cup that maintains all the nutrients, antioxidants, fiber, and chlorophyll found in the original foliage. It’s like eating the leaves right off the tree… just less crunchy!

Because straight Matcha is a little bitter, we couldn’t resist adding some milk and cane sugar to our mix. Combine three tablespoons of the powder to 6 ounces of hot water and you’ll have before you a creamy, sweetened brew with authentic, Green Tea flavor.

INGREDIENTS
Cane Sugar, Coconut Oil, Maltodextrin, Matcha Green Tea, Whole Milk Powder, Non Fat Milk Powder, Malted Milk Powder (Barley Malt, Wheat Flour, Milk, Bicarbonate of Soda, Salt), Natural Flavors, Sodium Caseinate (a Milk Derivative), Tricalcium Phosphate, Guar Gum, Mono and Diglycerides, Silicon Dioxide, Salt.

Discovered this one while rummaging through my kitchen pantry today. I remember buying it a long time ago and not liking it, but couldn’t remember specifically why. So I decided to do a quick taste test to jog my memory.

Prepared it according to directions by adding hot water to the matcha latte mix which had sugar and coconut creamer in it. It brewed up moldy green and smelled like boiled broccoli…not exactly inviting. It has a chalky taste typical of low grade matcha. There’s more sugar in it than green tea. The green tea flavor is there but isn’t very assertive. It’s kind of a generic green tea flavor without any umami or freshness to it. Pretty thin and watery compared to the matcha lattes I make at home.

While this isn’t the worst matcha drink I’ve had, it’s not great either. I can see how it might be appealing from a convenience standpoint however it’s not worth it when you can get much better results by throwing together matcha powder, sugar, and milk in a coffee mug.

I enjoyed the tea, it was easy to take to go and make in the morning. I wish there wasn’t so much sugar in it. However, this is my first matcha experience so I will most like branch out soon.

Well, I am not one to judge a tea because this is the first time I have ever had tea. I bet it was fine and dandy for some, but it tasted like forest river moss water to me. Again, maybe that is what all tea tastes like and I just am new to this world, but I will keep trying more.
