Marie’s Matcha Green Tea Love
Hi, my name is Marie. I drink matcha green tea every single day all day.
It all started in 2004 during a trip to Kyoto, Japan. I stayed in a ryokan, a traditional Japanese “bed and breakfast” type of inn where you sleep on a tatami mattress on the floor and you can soak in a super hot communal bath (I am sure it’s great in the winter – not when I was there in 90 degree heat and 90% humidity!)
In my room, I found a traditional bamboo container, a bamboo spoon, a little bamboo whisk, cute little tea cups and a hot water pot. I didn’t actually know what was inside the bamboo container but could see a bright green powder. I put a small amount using the bamboo spoon into a little cup and poured in some hot water. I used the whisk to stir it up.
I took my first sip. My immediate reaction was, “Wow! What IS this??”
I couldn’t believe how much I loved what I was drinking! I also felt the strong yet smooth effect that filled my body. I later found out I was drinking a premium grade ceremonial matcha green tea. I enjoyed the very nice high feeling as well as the unique taste unlike any tea I ever tried before.
The next day I search tea shops to take home some matcha. I brought home what I could afford, which was not ceremonial grade, but still very satisfying. I’ve been enjoying matcha ever since. Even as I write this, I can’t believe I have been drinking matcha for 19 years now… wow!
Why I Want to Share My Matcha Green Tea Love
Now more than ever, there more people enjoying matcha green tea. And as a result, there are now SO MANY choices for matcha green tea enthusiasts. There are great options for pure matcha powder for making traditional tea, and now you can also find matcha powder for smoothies, matcha blended products, and even matcha as an ingredient in an array of products.
For me, matcha as a tea gives me a good feeling and energy. Plus, there are great health benefits, which is an added bonus if you drink it because you love it. There are many kinds of matcha available online and I’d like to share with matcha drinkers my experience having tried so many.
Why Matcha Green Tea Love?
Because there are so many you can buy online, I’ve tried quite a few. With my decades of exploring matcha, I hope I can help matcha drinkers make the best choices in their quest for the best matcha that fits their tastes,

Peace, love and matcha!
