Matcha DNA's black matcha tea is an organically-grown powered tea that can be used as hot tea, in lattes, or baking and drink recipes. The practice of drinking powered tea in tea ceremonies dates back over 1000 years, starting in China and then carried on in Japan as a pillar of Japanese culture. This organic black matcha is made in China and has a smoother, less bitter taste than Japanese matcha.
Organic Black Matcha Tea is really easy to use - just add 1/2 teaspoon of powder to your cup, add hot water, then whisk or stir and sweeten to taste. This matcha has a nice, smooth flavor that I enjoy even without sweetener, but I do add a bit of stevia to mine sometimes. It can also be mixed with milk, put on cereal and ice cream, mixed into smoothies, or baked into food. The Matcha DNA website offers recipe ideas for using matcha. I've only used mine as a hot tea or in a green smoothie, but I really like it and I think the mild flavor lends itself to all sorts of different food and drinks.
Matcha has about half the caffeine content of coffee, but more than regular tea. It provides 4-6 hours of energy and focus, and has ten times the amount of antioxidants than brewed green tea. Of the different kinds of matcha I have tried, I like this black matcha the best. The 10 oz. package is rather large and will last quite while considering you only need 1/2 teaspoon for each cup.
Matcha DNA's black matcha is high quality, certified organic, and made by a reputable company. I recommend it.
