(Product Review) Midori Spring Ceremonial (GOLD) Matcha Green Tea

Midori Spring Ceremonial (GOLD) Matcha Green Tea was something new for me. I have enjoyed tea for as long as I can remember, but had never drank this type of tea before. I love the bright green color of this tea, and was curious to try it. I didn't have a matcha bowl or anything special to make this tea, so just made it in a tea cup. They recommend 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoons of the powder to 2 ounces of hot (not boiling) water. I found that the 1/2 teaspoon was plenty for me because this tea is stronger than the other teas that I am more accustomed to drinking. Rather than mix it in the ceremonial tea bowl with a bamboo whisk, I put mine in a tea cup and stirred it with a small whisk. It mixed up rather well and was ready for tasting.

The tea comes in a metal can with a screw on top. Under the lid is a ring pull, so you know it is well sealed and protected. This tea is a bit more bitter than most of the other teas I have drank in the past, but not too bad. I think it will be an acquired taste, but I think I will enjoy it more once I become more accustomed to it. I've read that matcha has a lot of health benefits, so I will continue drinking it and probably learn to enjoy it more. I find that the health benefits of drinking this tea are worth the slight bitterness and recommend that you at least try it. If the bitterness is a problem you can always add a bit of honey to your drink. I didn't find it necessary though. 

Although I got this product at a discount or received a complimentary sample in exchange for my honest review, all thoughts and opinions on the products I review are always my own and have not been influenced by any discounts or samples which may have been provided to me.
