    Really really nice. Enjoyed my first order and then signed up for monthly delivery. This is how I start every morning. I supplement on the weekends with the really special but non-organic matchas (e.g., Taiko-San Uji Matcha).

    Love this matcha! It's very green and has a pleasant grassy taste. O-Cha shipped it very quickly too- it was here in Canada after 4 days!

    Im half way through my first matcha container ever and must say; i like it a lot. Great replacement for coffee. I'm naturally no matcha expert, but must admit that it taste's great, and seems like high quality matcha. It's sort of bitter, but not at all overwhelmingly. It's the good kind of bitter like coffee. Tastes a lot like regular green tea but more potent and sweet (and a little greener taste like hint of pleasant nutrient rich greens). I also noticed the calm energetic effects of the caffine and L-theanine!

    Had no problem with the order and transport, but i did also use the most expensive transport option as i ordered it all the way to norway, will probably try one of the cheaper options in the future. Thanks a lot O-cha! Very satisfied.

    It's a rather good price / quality.
    The taste is good though light and a bit bitter (more than another ceremonial organic brand I tried).
    I would recommend it as it's organic.

    when it comes to ceremonial grade matchas at this price point, the kaoru supreme is definitely recommended. sift 3 grams with around 50 mL of water and it gives you a subtle earthy feel with a mildly acerbic finish with a decent amount of body and texture. this tea responds well to an extended whisk so incorporate a tad more air for a sweeter bite. i usually stay away from organic matchas and would steer anyone reading this review towards purchasing the chiyo mukashi. for a little more dinero, you can get a much more balanced, versatile and rewarding matcha with a creamier texture and excellent mouth feel. completely worth the few extra dollars. if the organic certification stamped onto this tin is crucial to your state of mind or well being, you will be making a fine choice.

    when comes the 2017 matcha kaoru supreme?

    I have still a can Match kaoru supreme with an expiring date sept. 2016?
    How long can the expiry date be overdue if the can was not opened till now?

    Kevin Moore

    Even though we advise not to use after the expiration, if it was unopened and kept in the refrigerator this whole time, it's probably still good. They will stay good for quite a long time under refrigeration.

    If it was not kept in the refrigerator, however, it's probably not good.

    It's normal for properly made matcha to be released in the fall, not spring because it should be aged a bit. You sometimes see it in summer, but it's not at it's peak yet.

    Good morning. I am interested in buying the Kaoru Supreme Organic Matcha. Can you please tell me if this matcha is tested to be radiation free? Also, is this ceremonial grade matcha? Thank you very much.

    This originates in Kagoshima prefecture, there has never been a positive test result for radiation from there that we are aware of. Regardless, this matcha is tested by the grower yearly.

    Yes, it's ceremonial grade, all of our matcha except for cooking matcha is ceremonial grade.

    I recently found a can of this matcha powder I bought a few years ago. It has a lot no. 050613, expiration 5/31/14. I know it would be too stale to use as tea, but Is it still safe to use for smoothies and cooking?

    The expirations we use are very conservative as we have fresh tea available to us at all times. So in reality expired products are usually good beyond the expiration date, but how far would depend on various factors: was ever opened, how it was stored (in the refrigerator?), etc. The date you mention is less than a year after expiration so it would just depend on how you stored it. My best guess is that you could still use it for smoothies and cooking without problem, but again, that depends on how it was stored and the condition of it - only you can make the final determination.

    Hi, I recently received this matcha. Using a kitchen scale, about how many grams should I use for usucha? And is 70mL of water at 70°C enough?

    Kevin Moore

    There is no hard fast rule, this takes some time and practice to perfect.  However, I just made a nice bowl of that using 2 scoops from a traditional Japanese bamboo teaspoon.  This came out to 2.5 grams. It took 55 mL of hot water to make it just right, so that would come out to 22 mL of hot water per gram of matcha.  That being the case, if you wish to use 70mL, you would use about 3 grams of matcha for that. 

    As  for the temperature, I think your temperature is a bit low.  I use 90℃ water to first heat my bowl, and also to pre-wet my whisk.  Then I dry off the bowl, add the matcha, then again I use 90℃  poured into a small teacup first to add to the matcha bowl. Of course the water cools down a bit from 90℃ as you transfer between vessels. Whisk vigorously, you should be able to obtain a nice green foam on top. If you don't, it probably means either you used too much water, you didn't pre-heat your bowl, or maybe both.  Practice makes perfect!
