Matcha Green Tea
Not Pure Matcha
I purchase matcha all the time. I decided to try this particular brand since the price was a bit better than my previous purchases. I was very surprised this contains "brown rice". Brown rice is not bad, but when you are thinking of purchasing pure matcha and you get one with brown rice filler, it is very disappointing.

NO MATCH FOR MATCHA
This Green Foods Matcha Green Tea is really unbelievable. Until you've tried it, you just won't believe how awesome it is. So I highly suggest you give it a try. It'll getcha. You'll be hooked, as I am. I was amazed and delighted from the first time I had a glass.
I put 1 tsp of this Matcha Green Tea powder into a glass, add a couple of tsps of Swanson's Xylitol granules or Y S Eco Bee Farms Tupelo Honey (also bought from Swanson Health Products) if I want my super-duper Matcha Green Tea sweet that day, then I simply add pure water and stir it up. I make mine with room temperature water, because I drink it instead of just another glass of water during the day. However, hot or cold works fine. One of my daughters has it "on the rocks" for an Iced Tea booster. Whatever way you have it, I think it will put a smile on your face.
Also, I frequently stir in a tsp of Vitamin C crystals and a couple of Amino Acid powders (like Arginine, Glutamine, Glycine, and Lysine) that I keep on hand and use regularly. But that's just me. I find this Matcha Green Tea is a good base for a quick, power-packed Amino Acid cocktail like that. I especially like to do that after a workout, or when I'm about to dive into a big thinking / writing / creative job.
The thing I found that is so awesome about this Green Foods Matcha Green Tea is how satisfying and sustaining it is. From the very first time I drank a glassful just plain by itself, I was amazed at how tremendous I felt. No downside. . . . Well, except for the fact that it's a tad on the pricey side. But you get what you pay for with this high quality product, and this particular Green Foods Matcha in this size jar is the most practical buy. Works for me.

I put this product in my morning shake and also make Iced green tea with it. I think green tea is a wonderful supplement. I don't drink hot tea often and did not want tea bags. This product is a little hard to mix in cold water but I stir it well and wait a few minutes before I drink it. I sometimes make it half and half with black tea,

I am particularly happy with the flavor of this powder. It is remarkably mild, which is important when taking it, and when putting it in smoothies. I am a big fan of green tea and its health benefits, and this form enables me to get a bigger dose with no problem.

Not too tasty, but good with honey or something to reduce bitterness. Have to admit I began feeling better immediately.

NOT PURE MATCHA- Brown Rice solids
This is tasty- but it is very mild/weak. And although it says no "fillers" on the packaging it lists brown rice as one of the ingredients. NOT PURE MATCHA. That being said- if you dont mind than this product will surely suffice. there is nothing "wrong" with it- but it is gritty like a very fine sand- dissolves but settles. and it does taste fine- just very mild in flavor.

Wonderful! Good for you tea
We saw Matcha Green Tea on Dr. Oz. We decided we should give it a try. I figured my husband wouldn't like it, being a male, and generally not thrilled with supplements... I was wrong! He loves it! The product is tasty, very easy to prepare, and tastes great! especially when you add coconut palm sugar which is also good for you! He says he even likes it better than hot chocolate. For him, that is saying A LOT! :o)

Best Matcha Green Tea
This is the easiest to use Green tea powder. It mixes well in smoothies, hot teas, cold drinks. The taste is amazing. Since it is a powder it can be added to almost any food or drink. I even tried it in soups and gelatin. It is my go to Green tea.

Best Green Tea
I've only been using for a short while. I drink one cup in the mornings. I like the taste I add a pkg. of stevia to sweeten it a bit. It gives me lots of energy and I feel really great all day...I like the benefits it provides.

I make a blended drink every morning using macha tea and ginger. I recently missed having it for 5 days due to a trip and I definately noticed a bit of a sluggish feeling. By the 3rd day of getting back on it I was feeling great again.

I had seen this tea promoted on the Dr Oz show and was anxious to give it a try. I have just finished my first full container and am happy to say it really kicks my energy into full swing in the morning. I will continue to purchase from Swanson (as there price is better than the local vitamin store) and plan to continue enjoying a cup of this each morning.

I make a cup each day. Good tasting and it gives me a slight lift. Lots of flavor and richness in just one teaspoon. I would certainly recommend this tea.

Great Green tea!
I buy this one for the quantity and value when Swansons' brand isn't on sale.I am aware of the brown rice solids that are added but since there isn't a percentage value on the label I would guess its minimal;I've yet to call the company to inquire...but with that said the rice solids seem to make this sweeter than pure Matcha so I use less Agave.It also is great in cold smoothies and baked items!!

I tried hot and cold water it remaining grainy. It settled to the bottom. Not thrilled.

I try to drink 4-5 glasses of green tea a day and with the hot summer I like to drink it cold. This convenient powder form is great. When drinking green tea you want it the powder form and from the matcha plant. Mix very well in cold or hot water. Add a little stevia and peppermint extract and you have a refreshing ice tea. This give me everything I want in a green tea. Organic is a plus. Wished the price was a little better, but I'm a cheap person so cheaper is always better. Love Swanson though, order from them at least once a month.

I heard from a friend that if he was trying to lose weight that he would be drinking Matcha tea. I tried it and did not have any change in my appetite. I will continue to drink it for its antioxidant properties. I'm just trying to reap health benefits any way I can, so I will continue to buy it.
