There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter. If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times.
Below are general steeping instructions. For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle. When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.

I made it using 8 ounces of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and 1/2 tsp of the Matcha, blending it with an electric whisk. Never had Matcha before but this was really good. It was very light in flavor and it paired well with the almond milk. Can't to try other things out with it!
It's smooth and it mixed up really nice. As for taste, most any green drink you have will taste like a green drink. I am quite happy with my purchase. I drink it once a day in the morning for sustained not to jittery clarity through the 6 hours of boost it gives you. Would not suggest more than once a day and not closer than 6 hours apart.
Loved adding matcha to my hemp cacao smoothie this morning. It added a hearty, earthy element and game me focused energy. No caffeine crash, like coffee!
