Green Foods Organic Matcha Green Tea -- 11 oz
So good and so good for you!
I was searching for a source for Matcha after being introduced to it by a friend and was astounded by the prices I encountered in local shops. This product is so delicious and exactly what I was looking for. I should also tell you that my friend who first shared Matcha with me, is a Japanese national and confirms that this is a very high quality product!
I tell any friend who can benefit from knowing about Vitacost. Superior selection, great prices and easy site navigation make Vitacost my first choice!

actually it's 80% rice
I should have read the reviews more closely before I bought this. The label says service size is 5g. Then further down, it says a serving contains 1g of green tea. I guess I'll be reading matcha tea labels very closely in future.

Great instant tea with benefits
In morning I make this up and take with me. Good taste, with benefits of powerful green tea.

Chemical Smell & "Brown Rice Filler"
I was excited to open my new matcha powder. However, upon opening the container, I was overwhelmed by a harsh chemical smell coming from the bottle. I thought maybe it was the plastic container, so I put some of the matcha powder in a small bowl... BUT it was the MATCHA that smelled! I don't know if this was a faulty batch or if all of their matcha smells like this. I've had other brands of matcha that don't have a chemical smell -- yuck! I will be throwing away this product and purchasing a different brand in the future.
Also, I don't eat grains and when I saw the addition of "brown rice filler" my heart sank. I didn't read the ingredients thoroughly enough before I made my purchase. Lesson learned.

I love drinking this in the morning especially. Just enough caffeine for me. Gives me more energy than drinking coffee. Love that there are so many health benefits. It tastes very good, much better than bag green tea. I was drinking the kirkland Japanese green tea which is bag tea with a tiny amount of matcha. That stuff is OK, but this stuff is far superior.
