Green Foods Organic Matcha Green Tea -- 11 oz
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.

excellent health benefits
This was my first time trying Matcha tea. I was pleasantly surprised in the taste. It was smooth and delicious. I will be ordering it regularly as I have been reviewing the health benefits and believe this will be an added bonus to my health regime. Great price for the amount of tea you get. I have seen other tea go the more with less ounces.

I have paid an arm and a leg for Matcha that was 1/3 of the size of this!!! It has a great taste and help keep my energy level up through out the day! I have been using 2 teaspoons a day and so far its lasted me well over three months.

Superb grade of green tea for medicinal use!
I have found this product to be superior in quality, taste, & usage. I have used it to make tea and to supplement my daily green smoothie. A great booster to work in harmony with other supplements for good health.
