When I got the opportunity to review this item I did have a key member of my family also to give it ago "my dad"
You my ask "why" well he is very much into his green tea/gunpowder teas and uses them day to day so thought it would be good to test them out together.
You can go on-line and downloads lots of different recipes from - http://www.matchateafactory.com/recipes-1-w.asp
Comes in a vacuum sealed zip-lock plastic pouch that is 4 oz
Started off by using 1 teaspoon of Matcha into a glass then added water to mix to a paste. Then add hot water,but not boiling water,mixing vigorously.
This is a very simply recipe we did you can also do another as we made another one with line & honey for us it tasted better as it the first one had a slightly bitter taste so we sweetened it up to give it that edge.
The powder has a amazingly light but fresh aroma to it yes sometimes you look at the colour and think how is that going to taste nice its just our minds as we think of certain foods.
Comes in a very handy bag you will need to keep matcha away from light, moisture and heat.
