About Pure Matcha

Tea Type : Green Tea

Tea Forté’s Pure Matcha is an exceptional tea experience, offering the healthful joy of spring-harvested, shade-grown, stone-ground green tea. Its enlivening, earthy flavor comes as a surprise to those who are experiencing matcha for the first time, and its smooth richness is pleasing and familiar to those who love the ancient green powdered tea.

Stronger when prepared with water and more mellow when prepared with frothed milk, this matcha is not a blend, but rather, a single-ingredient offering. Its distinct flavor opens with the unmistakable lushness matcha is known for and rounds off into a vibrant green note as it swirls across the tongue. Because matcha powder is made using the entire green tea leaf, it carries a host of health benefits.

Matcha dates back to the Tang Dynasty in China, when it was dried into bricks from which people could break off small pieces and stir them into hot water for an invigorating natural beverage. In the 12th century, the father of Zen Buddhism introduced the concept of matcha to Japan, and it was incorporated into traditional Japanese matcha ceremonies over the centuries to come. Today, matcha is enjoyed around the world, due in part to its distinctive green color and in part to its status as a superfood, packed with antioxidants.

Pure Matcha may be prepared in a variety of ways. It may be served hot or cold, mixed with water or frothed milk. True tea enthusiasts may wish to prepare the ancient drink using our Ceremonial Bowl Set which comes with a traditional bowl, whisk, and ladle.

    For hot matcha, blend one Matcha Single Steeps® (or 1 teaspoon) into 3.5 ounces of near-boiling water. Whisk thoroughly until rich and foamy. For best results, use a traditional bamboo whisk or frother.

    For a matcha latté, blend one Matcha Single Steeps® (or 1 teaspoon) into 3.5 ounces of warm milk. Thoroughly mix with frother until tea becomes rich and foamy.

    For iced matcha or an iced matcha latte, blend one Matcha Single Steeps® (or 1 teaspoon) into 3.5 ounces of cool water (or milk for a latte). Mix thoroughly and add ice. For best results, use a traditional bamboo whisk or frother.

      Matcha Made in Heaven

      I know. Corny headline, but it is so true. I start every morning with a sublime cup of matcha deliciousness. It's replaced my coffee ritual as it provides the same powerful energy but doesn't cause jitteriness. It's perfect and I love it so much that I'll never go back to drinking coffee.

      rich and delicious

      I find the flavored matchas (coconut & chocolate) a bit sweet for my taste, so I mix with this pure matcha to cut down the sweetness level

      Excellent matcha!

      I love being able to make my matcha lattes at home now. With the pure matcha I can add a complimentary flavor or leave it straight and my cup is always a beautiful shade of green!

      Green tea

      Matcha is green tea you say...yes this matcha has the bitterness of a green tea steeped to long or in too hot a water. Though it's fine for adding to smoothies or drinking cold, this matcha is not top notch for sipping. Granted, it is affordable, but for the brightness and smoothness of an excellent matcha, you'll have to go elsewhere.

      Matcha Tea

      I thought I would try this item. This was not as bad as I thought it would be. It was actually very mild in taste. And with its additional health benefits, it was a win/win for me.

      Best Matcha

      I have several varieties of Matcha from various vendors and this is definitely the best. Smoothest, bright green, dissolves easily.

      At last a Matcha that I love!

      I have gone through many various pursuits for top quality Matcha. I have had to stop drinking coffee for allergy reasons (mold toxins found in coffee beans), and though that loss has been hard, discovering Matcha has been wonderful! Ceremonial grade is what I have discovered to be the best over culinary grade (bitter). Tea Forte's Pure Matcha had me at first latte sip!!!! Talk about WOW and happy dance! So much so, I got the other matcha canisters but face it 1 oz won't cut it for everyday enjoyment. I have to keep this stash stocked! You know its good when you worry you are running out! LOL I love the 4 oz pouch because honestly its my new "coffee" and I LOVE IT! Trying out different recipes to find the perfect cup...I am a self proclaimed coffee connoisseur (don't judge me) as I have traveled the world in pursuit of its best coffee, I have since given that up and have begun to really enjoy all the benefits of a quality Japanese Matcha. I still drink coffee occasionally because I just love a good cup. I digress. Try the Pure Matcha! If you like almond milk, I have found that Trader Joe's unsweetened vanilla almond milk with this matcha and your sugar free sweetener of choice (and for decadence if you like Starbucks sugar free vanilla) makes a heavenly party in your cup on ice or hot. An outrageously delicious cup! So good. BUY IT. TRY IT! It's worth it! I'm not paid to give this review but when you invest a lot of time trying to find the best quality, the reviews matter. Sure its my opinion, but when you spend $30 on a 2oz or less matcha that tastes like bitter dirt, you get upset. This Pure Matcha and their spicy Chai matcha is bomb.com. Better than anything I have found on Amazon and local health stores in terms of taste and quality and more importantly PURITY. Tea Forte is amazing. Period. Enjoy!
