Tea Lover’s Organic Ceremonial Matcha from My Matcha Life

Tea Lover’s Organic Ceremonial Matcha from My Matcha Life? Yes, please!

Let’s get right to it, shall we? Tea Lover’s Organic Ceremonial Matcha from My Matcha Life shows off a vibrant green, fluffy powder upon cracking the top of this matcha tin!

It smells like creamy green veggies! An aroma I absolutely adore! Tea Lover’s Organic Ceremonial Matcha from My Matcha Life didn’t froth up as easy as some other matcha tend to but that didn’t matter much to me. At least not today.

Tea Lover’s Organic Ceremonial Matcha from My Matcha Life is a very strong matcha, naturally! I found this quite impressive! It tasted like spinach at times but smoothed out nicely for a creamier end-sip!

Their matcha tea is grown in the fields of Japan in the Kagoshima Prefecture at the south-western tip of the island of Kyushu and on the island of Honshu near the city of Kyoto where matcha tea actually originated 800 years ago. I can understand why they chose THIS specific hearty matcha to feature as their ceremonial matcha! With the top-notch quality, the rich history, and impressive aroma and flavor you can’t go wrong!


Here’s the scoop!

Barista’s Matcha Tea from My Matcha Life #VeganMoFo2016

Today’s prompt for Vegan MoFo 2016 is “If an alien showed up on your door step, what would you feed them?” I feel like I would whip up a wonderful matcha latte for several reasons. 1- The general look of an alien is that they are green and matcha is a fine ground green tea. And 2- Matcha’s are typically vegetal in flavor and for some reason I want to think that the alien that would show up at my door would be one that would have a similiar lifestyle as my vegan one!

I don’t live in a big city. I used to live in a medium-sized city while I was a child but that was way before trendy coffee shops and Barista were terms used in daily conversation and life. Recently I have been sipping on Barista’s Matcha Tea from My Matcha Life and totally LOVING it.

I know I shouldn’t judge a Matcha by it’s name but there is something special about Barista’s Matcha Tea from My Matcha Life and it goes beyond the name and title of the green tea powder.

The vibrant green color of the matcha powder is impressive upon opening the tin but the deep dark forest green color once you add the hot water is what really drew me in. Barista’s Matcha Tea from My Matcha Life offers the full Matcha experience from beginning to end.

Barista’s Matcha Tea from My Matcha Life smells vegetal but tastes creamy and green. The froth comes into play but disappears leaving the rich green quality matcha in the cup for me to admire. The sip is just as – if not more – impressive. Barista’s Matcha Tea from My Matcha Life is a pure delight!

Taster’s Review:

It’s been a day or two since I had a bowl of Matcha so the arrival of this Barista’s Matcha Tea from My Matcha Life was timely!  Oh, sure, I have some Matcha on hand (always!) but I’m happy to try something new to me.

For my first sampling of this Matcha, I prepared it hot in my chawan.  I scooped out a couple of chashaku scoops of Matcha into my sifter and sifted the Matcha into my chawan.  Then I added water heated to 160°F and whisked until the powder was completely incorporated in the liquid.

How much water?  I’ve been making Matcha for so long that I just eyeball it, but the amount of hot water should be 2 – 3 ounces to every 1/2 teaspoon of Matcha powder.  You can adjust this to your own liking, of course!

And this Matcha is delicious!  The dry powder was a bright green.  Not quite as bright and vivid as a top-quality ceremonial Matcha would be, but it’s not that drab green either.  It’s a nice color.

The tea froths up nicely.  Most of the froth disappears pretty quickly, but I still had some frothy bubbles on the surface up until my last sip.  Not a lot … but some.

I did notice that the tea didn’t stay sustained in the liquid for very long.  Because this is a ‘barista’ Matcha, this is a Matcha that is intended for (and better suited for) smoothies and blended drinks like that.  But it is tasty enough to serve as a good everyday Matcha!

It has a smooth, buttery flavor.  Even though the Matcha didn’t stay incorporated, after I re-whisked the tea, I didn’t pick up on a gritty or chalky texture and that earns extra points in my book!

It’s a really beautifully sweet Matcha – no bitter tones which I do often experience with some “not ceremonial” quality Matcha so that also earns extra points with me.

For my second tasting of this Matcha, I decided to try it with my new and latest obsession – Maple Water!  YUM!  Seriously yum.  If you haven’t tried maple water + Matcha – you must!

I’ve spent some time perusing the My Matcha Life website and they have just about everything that a Matcha beginner needs to get started in their journey with Matcha!  They don’t have a chashaku (this is a bamboo scoop used to scoop out Matcha) but you can use a 1/2 a teaspoon measuring spoon!  And this Barista Matcha is a really good Matcha – it is one I’d recommend to those beginners as a starting Matcha!
