What is Matcha tea?

Matcha is a finely ground specialty green tea. Considered the highest quality green tea and the centerpiece of Japanese tea ceremonies. It’s insanely healthy, tastes earthy and mild, and provides a mild stimulant affect. A perfect remedy for the afternoon blues commonly associated with the coffee crash.

I quit coffee cold turkey 1.5 years ago and still going strong 🙂


The Basics

Where is the tea from?

Aichi and Kagoshima, Japan

$24.97 for a sealed 1 ounce canister. Price is  fair since there are quite a few servings in an ounce. (1 tablespoon per cup)

After opening the canister, I found the matcha to be an almost impossible shade of green. Even the cat wanted some!


I personally love the sleek little 1 ounce canister. Feels good in your hard and very easy to travel with.



Creamy and smooth with a subtle earthy/alkaline finish. Very enjoyable. After giving it a good mix, the tea would turn a beautiful frothy green.


Midori Spring Organic Matcha tea is very healthy! Check out the nutrition facts...

My Experience

I usually enjoy one cup of this delicious and healthy tea each day. I start my morning with a strong pu-erh tea and then after a few hours of work I head back into the kitchen for a cup of matcha.

I also really enjoyed the combined effects of both matcha and pu-erh. They contain slightly different chemical stimulants which compliment each other nicely.






• Very tasty
• Incredible nutrition profile
• Can be used for tea, baking, smoothies, etc
• Mild caffeine content provides a calm and focused affect



• Harder to prepare than I hoped. You really need to use a wisk in order to break up all the small clumps
• Expensive compared to consumer grade tea (Midori Spring is ceremonial grade)



Final Thoughts


If you’re looking for a high quality matcha, (and can stomach $30/ounce) I think Midori Spring is a great choice. Very healthy, great taste, sleek packages, easy to travel with.
