Where do you buy it or do you have a specific brand you recommend?
What do you do with it?
Make a drink out of it?

Do you use it for general health benefits? Where did you learn about it?

I enjoy it on occasion but only iced. I dont enjoy a hot matcha at all. I either get it as a drink at the local coffee shop or the boxed drinks at trader joes. I have bought my own powder but I had a hard time whisking it so it was not chunky so I gave up.

I buy online nowhere specific. I usually use it to make matcha flavored desserts(thus I buy baking quality matcha , you need to buy higher quality if you are drinking it). Health benefits aren't concern but I wouldn't use it/drink it while pregnant because high caffeine content.

You can get in a health food store. It’s tea leaves that were grown in the shade, so they have all the chlorophyll in it even after dried.
You can find very easy matcha latte recipes online.
I am very picky, and it tastes like grass to me. My sister loves it, though. She’s forever getting iced matcha lattes from Dunkin Donuts.

I buy it at Walmart. I add to my coffee. Gives me huge energy boost.

You just put some straight into hot coffee or do something else ? Is the taste ok?

You can put it straight into coffee. You can also make a matcha latte with it (same way you’d make a regular latte, but with matcha leaves instead of coffee granules).

I feel like hot matcha tastes like grass and I really dont like it. The iced has a different flavor and I like it actually. I wish it was cheaper lol.

Yeah the iced version tastes less herby. Still not for me, but Starbucks has an iced matcha lemonade which is even better than an iced matcha latte.

I would love if a kosher cafe made iced matcha or even hot- would love to try it!

I also have this strong urge to taste bubble tea. Watched an online tutorial and looks like way too much work to make at home as I have no idea if I like it!
