100% Certified Organic Matcha Green Tea
I used to mix this into lattes or mixed drinks. at home I mix a small amount with hot water, honey, and a little white chocolate syrup. I put it in my mortar to ground it up and then add almond milk and ice cubes. Sooooo good. the price is great too. it is a small amount, but that just means you should buy all 3 that are available. it should last about a month and a half if you drink it daily like me.

On a whim I ordered this to try and it was a huge hit ! Even my young children love it ; we just add a little local , raw honey. It's smooth , energizing and refreshing and it tastes the way green tea should taste - and the versatility is great because it could be used in recipes if desired. I hope Swanson continues to carry it.

Green Tea Powder
Excellent quality and fine grind green tea powder. I used it to make green tea ice cream. Used 4 T instead of the 2 that was recommended and it produced the finest green tea ice cream anywhere. No grit, very smooth. However it does have a very high caffeine content so beware of using too close to bedtime if you are susceptible to caffeine.

GREAT Matcha of most I've had!
Usually, I am pretty picky about buying generic brands of matcha tea, but this was on sale, so I thought I would give it a try. WOW ! I'm surprised! It is excellent. Swanson has truly outdone themselves with this. Plus, I only need 1/4 tsp. for a major calming and energizing boost. I love that it has no fillers and is strictly matcha tea. It's excellent! I love that this brand is almost $20 cheaper than another I previously loved, and it works just as great. This brand also blends pretty easy in some hot-to boiling water, but I don't recommend using boiling water to preserve as many nutrients as possible. Also, it foams up nicely, just like real matcha does, which is a sign it's a keeper! It has a warm, malty taste almost that's slightly earthy and creamy. I will definitely order again!

Green we drink
Intrigued by any green, I discovered this exotic tea by chance. Unlike the common green tea, it comes with a package of whole tea leaves in the form of fine powder. So you drink " tea" , along with "eating" the leaves. I see it as a sort of instant green soup made of whole food.
It tastes mild, but fresh. It is now a welcome guest!

Swanson Organic Matcha Tea is well worth your money. It is around a months worth of tea and for 5000+ orac units of antioxidants per serving you really can't beat the value. For people who have never had matcha tea it taste very similar to a combination of green tea and spirulina. It has a beautiful green flavor, that you can drink without sweeteners. Try it, if you dont like it swanson always gives you your money back.

green tea boost
I use this in my green shake in the morning. It gives me the boost I need to get going.

First off the container is too small. I lost at least one scoop full just opening thing. They fill it to the rim so a little larger container would be a plus. As far as any health benefit I haven't felt any so be your own judge.

I am really pleased with this matcha. I add it to my green smoothie every morning and it dissolves in a little cold water easily. The enclosed scoop is a bonus with this product!

Swanson's matcha green tea powder is high grade and very good. It is not bitter and mixes well with cold/hot beverages. I think this is an excellent addition to my healthy protocol!

Good Green Stuff
This powder tastes quite good; I add a dash of vanilla to make it even better!

I thought I would give this a try even though some of the reviews were not good. I have a green drink every morning so I am used to drinking something that may not taste wonderful. This was really hard to drink. I won't order it again.

My daughter asked me to buy.She loved .

First time using matcha. Liked it!!

In my opinion, it is good matcha. I can't say I've tried a lot of kinds but the color looked fine to me, the taste was good, and nothing seemed off. I bought at B1G1 free, but I'm not sure I'd buy again at full price because the price seems high for such a litle container.

pretty good value
Matcha tea is usually quite expensive. This seems to be a better than average price for a tasty tea.

Superior form of green tea
I used to make special trips to an Asian grocery to buy matcha, for its superior qualities compared with ordinary green tea. I now get Swanson's organic matcha for a little more than I paid for the conventionally grown product. Green tea is an essential component of my diet and this product is excellent.

I cant live without my matcha green tea and by far swansons organic matcha green tea powder is my favorite. You get so much more for your money and the quality is the best ive tasted yet. I've gotten so many friends hooked on this stuff. I love it Iced.

I like this because you can have a cold drink. It doesn't have to be hot.

Enjoying this every morning
It can be difficult to find quality matcha powder, so I was pleased to find this organic option. This tea has a nice flavor (not bitter). I have read that matcha tea is not only high in anti-oxidants, but also boosts your metabolism. I like to start each day with a cup of this deep green tea.
The little scoop that comes in the package is quite handy.
I only wish that there were sizes larger than 1.76 oz. available.

I use Mtacha daily in my green smoothie and Swanson's offering is a wonderful example of their value for dollar.

This was my first time to try Matcha Green Tea, so I didn't know what to expect. The tea has a grassy taste, with that in mind it is a good product. I was happy with price and quality.
