If you like Kyo-green, to me this tastes similar. I was scared of a gritty leafy taste, but no! I used it with a can of diet ginger ale, then water to 16 oz., then a slice of lemon, and ice. It was delicious! Maybe place canister over napkin, paper plate, etc. so you don't waste any when opening, scooping,like I did. Then you can obviously bend the plate or napkin to pour that super-fine powder back into container or glass. This stuff is perfect! Plus, I totally trust anything with the Swanson label. Hard to do with companies I don't know, with stuff I am ingesting. Get this!

I have never been a tea drinker, coffee is my beverage of choice. I have to drink decaf or I get jittery. This Swanson green tea gives me the energy boost I was looking for without the jitters. Because I am not a tea drinker I use one scoop daily mixed in with my orange juice. The green tea powder is very fine and feels like chalk. I use a small whisk and it mixes very well with cold juice and water. Ordering from the website is simple and delivery is around 5 days. The price is much lower than a brand I purchased earlier from another vendor that had brown rice fillers and did not mix very well. I will continue to use this brand. Swanson's is a quality product.

This is the first ever Matcha I ever had. It tasted good and instantly gave me a boost. Like, wake me up right now! Doesn't upset the tummy like coffee though. I've read where people described it as tasting like mud but it doesn't. I didn't make it very strong. Just one heaping scoop. I made a second bowl right after. Next time I'll use two scoops.

This stuff gives me energy and focus! I have tried other brands from this website and this is the one I like the most by far. You can tell if it's quality Matcha tea if you put some on the counter top and it smears like chalk. Will continue to purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 Wonderful!
This is exactly what I wanted! It's great if you put a little stevia in it. I simply heated the water, stirred in a scoop of matcha with two stevia packets and viola! Perfect green tea! And I love the health benefits I've read about. I had lots of energy, even more than when drinking regular green tea!

This is my first time trying any Matcha. I make it using the instructions on the container. I also add a little stevia and almond milk. It's pretty yummy! I added it to my protein shake this morning and plan to do that more often.

You can make you're own S-bucks Frappe with this stuff, with a lot less sugar to boot. Mixes best in a blender added to a smoothie or protein shake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by consider8 Try It the Traditional Way
I place half a scoop in the bottom of a mug, then add about two teaspoons of very hot water. Mix with the powder first, til it looks like a smooth paste. After that, add the rest of your water and stir it around til all is dissolved. The traditional way is to use a small whisk. I ignore the directions on the label as that makes it granular and not half as nice as when mixed properly. The other thing about this pleasurable tea is that you may feel a lovely sense of energy without any hint of being hyper. I love this Matcha and enjoy two cups a day. Lots of healthy benefits.

This product taste absolutely horrendous & did NOT help give me any energy. My appetite was decreased ONLY because it made me sick to my stomach & I couldn't eat after ingesting it

This is not ceremonial tea. High grade Matcha is a bright green. This tea is a drab green. My wife and I did not like the tea at all. It tasted like plastic from the container it came in.

I love the idea of consuming the whole green tea leaf. Swanson's Organic Matcha Green Tea powder dissolves into a lovely, smooth tea with a nice fresh flavor. Organic makes it an even better choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Monday Great Stuff!
I love this tea when blended in my protein drink to get the health benefits it offers! Very satisfied with this product. After reading reviews most do not know since it is a fine loose powder form if you place the one scoop in a bowl add hot boiling water and whisk it, it will mix very well if drinking as a tea, (this is how it is suppose to be prepared) otherwise it does not mix well at all. It does NOT have a very pleasant taste, kind of tastes like grass (at least to me it does), although if it did have a great taste you would probably not be getting the quality and there would be way too many ingredients added to make it taste better. I would rather have the health benefits than a good taste. I mix in my protein drink and the taste is fine, otherwise I would not be able to drink it. I paid 9.99, though that was a little pricey and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, this is a geat price right now and I will be stocking up. I really like the scoop that comes with it. Thanks Swanson for a great, high quality product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by thedandelionroom wonderful taste
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MARGA5 Fantastic !
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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MillieLou 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Avovar 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!
