Got this tea as a gift. The tea is a yellowish-greenish color and came sealed in a clear glass container. The tea had a very smooth taste, with a slight bitterness. I did add a little Truvia that gave it a some sweetness towards the end, It also has very similar characteristics to Dragonwell green tea. I think this is a great "first green tea" for those first exploring the variety.

The purpose of RateTea is to encourage people to develop their appreciation of tea and promote sustainability in the world of tea. RateTea was founded in 2009 by Alex Zorach, and is owned and managed through Merit Exchange LLC. RateTea launched to the public on Sep. 18, 2009.
They keep a database of teas indexed by brand, style, and region. Although it is not the largest database on the web (Steepster currently has a larger database), the site claims to be the most detailed database available. Single-region teas are classified to the level of provinces, states, districts, or counties, when this information is available. Rather than classify teas broadly (black, green, etc.) they identify particular varieties of each of these broad classes of tea, both to help people discover the vast richness of tea traditions, and also so that teas can be compared against truly similar teas.

I usually like to have green tea lattes in the morning but this evening I was just in the mood.
Here is my easy recipe. All you need is a teaspoon of matcha green tea, milk (I prefer almond milk) and a little sweetener.
Mix the matcha power in 6 oz of hot water. Stir until dissolved. Add 6 oz of almond milk plus sweetener (I prefer Truvia). Stir again. Pop into microwave for 30 seconds and enjoy!
Did you know that one glass of matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content.
You can probably tell by now that I really like Matcha green tea. Here a great video from my friends at Matcha Source on how to sift, whisk and enjoy Matcha green tea.

1 spoonful of Matcha green tea
Directions - Blend, drink and enjoy the weekend!
