Commercial Description

Traditionally used in the Japanese tea ceremony, this top quality green tea powder is hand-made from the youngest Gyokuro leaves. In addition, only the finest, youngest leaves are hand-picked for Matcha.

Brewing Instructions: (from Teavana)

Use 1/2 teaspoon of tea per 8 ounces of water. Heat water to 165-175 degrees, which is hot, but not boiling. Pour over tea and wisk powdered tea and water into froth. Use more tea for a stronger taste, if you prefer.

An acquired taste for some although I like it - not the cheapest tea to buy and not really worth it if youre not into it. Can understand that as the color is not initially appealing to new tasters. I find it better than economy greens which often lack flavor

So overpriced - but very good Matcha - with a bright green taste - a bit grassy but not bad. Elegantly packaged as is Teavana's Style - you pay for all that packaging.
