Matcha is a special form of powdered green tea that comes from the same plant as regular, whole leaf green tea. The difference between matcha and green tea lies in the unusual cultivation and processing methods, making it the king of greens.
Matcha’s recent rise in popularity in the West is in part due to a better understanding of its incredible health benefits. Recent research has shown that one cup of matcha has 100 times the antioxidants compared to green tea (and green has about double the levels found in black tea). Matcha also contains various compounds that are associated with improving health, reducing stress and increasing alertness. It’s the perfect brew for our over-stimulated busy world. It is also being used as an alternative to coffee.

it taste great and smells amazing the aroma is earthy yet rich I must have this daily it part of my routine now and it will remain that way.
I tried the Supreme Matcha Green tea along with my family. This tea has great aroma while brewing, which makes it all the more enticing! However, I found the tea to be bitter in taste. Usually it happens when you over cook/boil the tea or if you add more tea than necessary. In my case, for the usual quantity (1 teaspoon) of tea with one glass of water, the tea seemed bitter in taste. I will definitely give it a go one more time to see if my concerns are genuine.
best tea hands down, I enjoy the tea and the packaging it just taste so good, it also gave me the right amount of energy that i needed. i told a friend at work about it and she went to find it on target after i have gave her a sample.
The tea it great. Really love the taste . Not to overpowering. Great to include if you are dieting or if you just want to relax and enjoy the great essence
I’m a tea drinker, from childhood. I haven’t seen Pukka here but I’ll keep my eyes open for this brand. There are so many brands these days that it’s hard to keep up. But I always have London Fruit & Herb teas at home and at the office, and PG Tips is a staple at home. I also have a brand from India and another from Tahiti (souvenirs from officemates). I live in tea country – we have free oolong, mugi and green tea at the office, and Japanese restaurants serve free kocha or hojicha. I don’t think I’ve met a tea I didn’t like (except for sweet/sugared tea but that’s not the tea’s fault).
