Honestly, I don't know what's the difference between Matcha Green Tea to just Green Tea. At the supermarket, I can only see Green Tea, but Ria told me this type of Matcha Green Tea was purchased at the PX Store in Clark - store known for selling imported goods, where goods are priced by US Dollars, and shoppers will have to convert it to the exchange rate that day in Philippine Pesos.
Being a noob about preparing tea, we just followed what was written on the packet - boil water and steep the tea bag for 15 seconds. Next step was something we weren't able to understand: cut the packet and pour loose tea, something like that (I threw the packet already, sorry). Anyway, we just took out the bag after 15 seconds or so - time to enjoy the tea!
Of course, it tasted like any regular hot cup of tea, but five minutes after we had a small cup of it, we felt its calming effect - like we mellowed or something. Funny though, tea has caffeine and it's supposed to make people alert and alive, yet we felt we wanted to sleep already!
I am not sure if I will have a chance to see this Green Tea brand, but if ever I see one, I'd surely buy it as I once tasted the Matcha Milk Tea and loved it.
