Red tea is the bet tasting of all teas without adding any sweetners
I tried some Matcha Green Tea that they had at my wife's recovery center and thought it was gross. If I had to choose between Matcha Green Tea and a beer, I'd take the beer even though I don't drink alcoholic beverages. Fortunately, there are other options.
It might be how it was prepared, @Ken Anderson. I make mine like a chai tea latte, but with the green matcha powder (and some powdered mint) added into it, and sweetened. It tases good to me, and I think I would like it either cold or hot.
However, you might not like it. Bobby drinks all of his coffee black, and also his tea plain; so I think he would not like the matcha tea either.
My daughter does macha tea, roasted. It tastes like the tea in Japanese restaurants. I especially like Egyptian Licorice tea. It is naturally sweet and I mix it with dandelion root, burdock root and chocolate mint we grow. It is quite good for us and yummy.
If anyone's interested I saw this article in one of my local fliers about Matcha tea. I rarely drink tea, I enjoy my cup of coffee in the morning, for me it doesn't matter the brand, I usually buy whatever medium toast is on sale.
Thanks for that, @Tony Page.
This line was interesting: "Matcha contains higher levels of anti-oxidants, amino acids, and caffeine compared to green tea, as the entire leaf is consumed."
Having no idea how tea in general is processed, I then found this: "Tea sorting is the final stage in tea processing. The process is vital especially in removing physical impurities such as seeds and stems."
So I guess when you drink Macha, you get the more tender green stems & seeds. Of all the green and black Chinese & English teas I've had (at last count nearly 20), I've never tried Macha.
I drink Lipton green tea Matcha on occasion with a slice of lemon and a tad of honey. It tastes good, but there probably isn't a speck of Matcha in those tea bags.
