The first time I tried this matcha tea, it did taste a bit strong and bitter for me. You can add a little bit of sweetener if you feel like it is bitter to you. The matcha tea is in powder form, so I would say to be careful when you open the packets up. You get 25 packets in your box. The bamboo whisk makes it easy to blend the matcha powder with the hot water. I usually make my tea hot, but you can choose to make a cold matcha tea drink as well. There are different recipes like a matcha bowl with fruits or coconut matcha latte that you can make from the guide book using the matcha powders. All of the recipes look and tastes amazing for sure. You can be experimental and make up your own recipe using the matcha powders. That is always a lot of fun.
There are so many benefits that matcha has. These matcha powders that you are getting in these packets are organic green tea leaves directly from Japan. They grind the green tea leaves to make the matcha powder so that it is more concentrated. It is packed with antioxidants to help protect the body. It helps with your energy, immunity, weight loss or maintaining your weight, and better digestion. I know that matcha green tea has always helped me maintain my weight. Now, the loosing more weight is what I am still working on by trying to go exercise and eating better more.
Overall, I personally really enjoyed Your Tea's matcha tea. It can be a bit strong just by itself when you put the hot water and the whole bag of powder, but you can make something else with the powder too. I am definitely getting more matcha tea or I might even try purchasing their other teas. There are a lot of good tea selections I really do want to get soon.
