Vitacost Certified Organic Pure Matcha Green Tea Powder - Non-GMO -- 1.75 oz (50 g)
Great Protein Shake Addition
Wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I actually really like the flavor of this in protein shakes and chia pudding. I don't find it overly bitter, it is mildly grassy and green tea tasting and the price is good.
My favorite way to use this is paired with vanilla extract and peppermint flavor in a protein smoothie. The same flavors go well with chia pudding (especially when layered with chocolate chia pudding (!!). The matcha flavor also goes well with pistachio.
Really perks up boring diet foods, and will definitely be a pantry staple for me. Can't wait to try more recipes.

great product...messy though
I love the tea...it tastes a bit bitter, but that's normal. My only complaint is that it gets really messy trying to use the small scoop that it comes with. So I just use my own measuring spoons.

Matcha Green Tea - by Vitacost
Got this to try as there was a great BOGO free offer. I like the taste, however there is some grittiness at the bottom of the cup if you don't stir it before you take a drink each time. I add some Nunaturals Stevia to it to sweeten. I don't notice any benefits from the green tea, but I do like knowing that it is good for me, and I will continue to use this product as I haven't found anything better.

This tea is so refreshing and soothing! It does have a slighty bold taste but you will get used to it. I believe my appetite is curbed as well. The best part of all....this is one of the best food items you can drink! It's healthy in so many ways. Do your research! I drink it warm every morning with coconut milk. Delicious!

nice taste, easy to make
Frankly, I'm not a fan of the flavor of green tea generally. But this Vitacost macha green tea has a much milder, less bitter flavor than traditional green tea. Just a dash of sweetener (stevia or whatever) and it tastes great! Also, being in a powder form, it couldn't be easier to make.
