Looking for the best matcha powder in town? In Japanese, “matsu” literally means “pine tree.” But it’s also a term that indicates excellence. This detoxifying finely ground green tea lives up to its name. Bold in taste and aroma, this indulgent matcha powder is perfect as is, or as a base for your lattes, milkshakes and smoothies. Excellent.

What makes it great

  • Delicious sipped on its own or mixed into lattes and smoothies.
  • Matcha is a labour of love – it's made by removing the stems and spines of the tea leaves and then grinding the leaf into a fine powder.
  • Because you're ingesting the entire leaf, you get 100% of the benefits, plus an energy boost.

It used to be good quality dark green Match. The last batch a bought was yellowish which indicated the lowest quality matcha you can buy, its not even good for baking and is absolutely disgusting to drink. Match of this quality should be a third of the price. I bought a large amount of Matcha this time becuase I drink it everyday and had never had an issue with the quality. And now im stuck with this garbage since all the stores are now closed and customer service has 1 person working that is not responding to messages or answering the phone. I attached a photo. The matcha in the spoon is the color I usually get and the color in the bag is the garabe that was shipped to me. The color is muted in the photos so its a more pronounced difference in person. Waste. Until they can get the quality sorted DO NOT BUY</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2020-03-21</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2020-03-21" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="226661585"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">1</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">ConnieC</span> from <span itemprop="name">Calling this tea excellent is an insult to matcha</span> <span itemprop="description">I drink a lot of matcha so when davidstea came out with the matcha line, I knew I had to try it out. 1) First of all, the tea is stored in room temperature, in non airtight containers, which should never be done for good quality matcha. In fact, all the matcha at davidstea is stored this way, which really makes me question the quality of the even higher grade and more expensive teas. Matcha oxidizes quickly, and should be stored in the fridge for maximum longevity. At room temp, it will only last a few weeks before taking on bitter tastes. 2) Color: This was a light yellowish green. Good quality matcha should be a much darker, richer green. Of all the matchas I own, Japanese or otherwise, this was the yellowest one. 3) Taste: Very bitter, but also flat and tasteless. It has very little body or depth of flavour. It tastes like bitter green tea. Good matcha shouldn't be very bitter (again, questionable storage practices) and it should taste vegetal and almost grassy. Matcha matsu was very... undrinkable. Overall, you could use this in baking or in sweet matcha flavoured concoctions, but as a tea to drink? Definitely not. Even the lowest quality &quot;culinary grade&quot; Japanese matcha I own far surpassed this one.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-12-05</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-12-05" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="232506280"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">4</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Anonymous</span> from <span itemprop="name">Good Matcha</span> <span itemprop="description">Good quality, brightly coloured matcha. Needs a little care to avoid clumping, use a small amount of water at first, then add more once a paste has formed. Great in lattes and on its own, flavour is bitter and pleasant. Price is decent. Would like to have received 100g in one bag rather than 2 50g bags. The shipping packaging is excessive (particularly the air bags) for some tea (which isn't fragile) and feels wasteful so I'll be thinking twice about online ordering.

It's got a nice strong flavour -- grassy without being bitter, pleasant and interesting enough to drink without milk. It's a good, bright green. I think the quality is very appropriate for the price. I drink it every morning in place of coffee, and it's strong enough (both in terms of caffeine and theanine) to wake me up and keep me going throughout the day. Because it's so economical, I don't feel bad baking with it, and its great in chocolates and breads. I find you don't need very much of it. I have the perfect matcha spoon sold via David's tea, and if I use the entire thing it just clumps up at the bottom. I always use significantly less. It doesn't impact the taste at all, and it means the tea lasts forever.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2020-04-21</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2020-04-21" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="234044124"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">1</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Emma12345</span> from <span itemprop="name">How is this excellence exactly?</span> <span itemprop="description">Decided to try Matcha Matsu as I've never tried this one before and decided to try another Matcha from David's (I usually drink Grand Cru). What the heck is this? It tastes really bitter compared to any matcha I've had before... and I drink a lot of green tea and matcha in genera so I am used to the taste of green tea. This tastes really cheap. And yes, I follow temperature directions to the T (I have a kettle where I can adjust the temperature as I please - as an avid tea drinker, this is essential). So, no, it's not me not following seeping instructions. This matcha is just bad. At $16/50g, don't throw your money away, just don't buy this. If you like Matcha, you know this isn't good. Spend a little more and get good matcha instead... you're better off with the Grand Cru.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2020-06-24</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2020-06-24" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="221111779"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Mamaofone</span> from <span itemprop="name">Love it</span> <span itemprop="description">This is why I went to DAVIDsTEA in the first place and have tried other teas from them since but this is a staple as well as the grand cru matcha</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-06-15</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-06-15" /> </div> </div> <script type="text/javascript"> if (document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection')) { document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection').style.display = 'none'; } </script> <!--end-reviews--> <!--begin-pagination--> <ul id="bvseo-paginationSection"> <li class="bvseo-paginationItem"><a class="bvseo-paginationLink" href="https://www.davidstea.com/ca_en/tea/collections/matcha-collection/matcha-matsu/10123DT01VAR003986.html?bvstate=pg:2/ct:r">Matcha Matsu Reviews - page 2</a></li> </ul> <!--end-pagination--> <ul id="BVSEO_meta" style="display:none!important"> <li data-bvseo="bvDateModified">y_2020, m_10, d_26, h_16</li> <li data-bvseo="ps">bvseo_bulk, prod_bvrr, vn_bulk_3.0.12</li> <li data-bvseo="cp">cp_1, bvpage1</li> <li data-bvseo="co">co_hasreviews, tv_165, tr_61</li> <li data-bvseo="cf">loc_en_CA, sid_10123DT01VAR003986, prod, sort_[SortEntry(order=RELEVANCE, direction=DESCENDING)]</li> <li data-bvseo="diagnostics">clientName_davidstea</li> </ul> <!--end-bvseo-reviews--> <ul id="BVSEOSDK_meta" style="display: none !important;"> <li data-bvseo="sdk">bvseo_sdk, dw_cartridge, 18.2.0, p_sdk_3.2.0</li> <li data-bvseo="sp_mt">CLOUD, getReviews, 8ms</li> <li data-bvseo="ct_st">reviews, product</li> </ul>
