origin: japan matcha

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

Matcha, the focal point of the Japanese Tea Ceremony, is a fine powder made by grinding green tea leaves. Only the finest, young, shade-grown gyokuro tea leaves are used to create matcha. The leaves are plucked and laid out flat to dry. Veins are removed and the leaves, now called tencha, are carefully ground in granite mills until they become the precious powder. Easy preparation is achieved by placing 1 teaspoon of matcha per cup (or to taste) in a cup, adding a few drops of hot water (160-180F) and stirring with a spoon until a paste forms. Add the rest of the water and stir.

This is a Samidori cultivar from Uji, Kyoto, flavored with natural peaches. It is a high-grade Spring (first harvest) tea. The 2oz tin will make about 24 8oz servings. Steep at 170°F for 2 minutes

      Very nice peach smell when opened. I've had it both hot and cold and both were excellent.

      I am a huge match fan, and loved this! Wonderful peach flavor, blended well with little clumping

      Similar to the blueberry and raspberry matchas, this smells like peach but doesn't really taste like peach to me. It's not bad - it's still enjoyable, but I will probably just order plain matcha from now on since the flavors are not really coming through for me. It just tastes like regular matcha to me.

      Great matcha with subtle peach flavor. I'm glad that the added flavor is not too overwhelming

      I was pleased that this tera is not TOO peachy. It's quite discreet.

      Though the peach flavor is subtle, I like this matcha quite a bit. It’s excellent in my fruit smoothies to give me that extra energy boost to start my day!

      The peach is not too potent and the balance of the flavors is lovely
