Maybe it would help if you could tell us what Matcha Tea is and what it does for us.

I've added a link and some info off of another website. There is a company that imports this type of tea, and they sell it in boxes of 10 Sleeves. 1 sleeve per cup. It typically sells for @$14-16 a box, and 2 boxes do not come even near what 1 kilo would cost.

The Tea I am looking at comes from Japan. it is organically grown. Normal grade is $28.50 a kilo, and top grade is $56 a kilo. 1 kilo = 2.2 lbs. Top Grade has a better taste and a slight sweetness to it, while normal grade tastes closer to grass. The Matcha Tea from Richi, that I've been drinking is closer to normal grade than top.

10oz. of Matcha Tea from Amazon Prime is $22.80 10oz. of Matcha Tea from Amazon Prime is $22.80


Matcha - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The health benefits of matcha tea exceed those of green tea because when you drink matcha you ingest the whole leaf, not just the brewed water.

One glass of matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content.

For maximum nutritional benefit, matcha tea is unparalleled.

A cancer-fighter, a fat-burner, and much more, matcha leaves other green teas far behind

Every day, countless people throw away valuable antioxidants and minerals. While seemingly unimaginable, thats exactly what happens when you brew a cup of green tea because water can only extract a fraction of green teas benefits. The majority actually remains unused, trapped in the tea leaves. In reality, the only way to truly take advantage of green teas full potential is to consume the entire leaf. But that doesnt mean you need to start eating tea leaves. The simplest solution is to just enjoy a bowl of matcha. Because matcha is straight, stoneground tea leaves, matcha provides you with green teas powerful arsenal of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids in a way no other green tea can. In fact, to even begin to match the potency found in a single serving of matcha, you would need to drink at least ten cups of brewed green tea. When it comes to helping you achieve and maintain optimum health, matcha is without equal.

Amongst its many benefits, matcha...
Is packed with antioxidantsincluding the powerful EGCg
Boosts metabolism and burns calories
Detoxifies effectively and naturally
Calms and relaxes
Enhances mood and aids in concentration
Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium
Fights against viruses and bacteria
Is rich in fiber
Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar
Does not raise insulin levels

WOW I guess I'm just an ignorant "good ole boy"-----I mostly drink water or sometimes when it really gets hot I will drink a beer (or two).

But that's just me.

The fun part about shopping on the Chinese network for Matcha Green tea is once you start piddling around and asking different sellers about their tea, they come out of the woodwork to help you.

A lot of them have a set price on the website, when you start sending inquiries the prices change. They try to get the best price they can, like any good sales person, but when you call them on it they usually come back down. The whole trick is to catch them at the right moment to get them to come down far enough for it makes it worthwhile for you.

I already found three distributors and order tea from all three to find out who has the best price, and the best tea. But I'm guessing it's a small community, because now I'm getting inquiries from other dealers. Shopping online is so much fun.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That said does anyone else have an iPhone 5? I've used the same website for iPhone 5 accessories. When I bought Diane and I iPhone 5's for our anniversary they only came with one cable for charging and a plug for the wall. They didn't have anything else available or cases. I went to the same website and bought extra cables and adapters and cases for a 1/3 of the price I would've paid going to Apple.

WOW---you obviously are a connoisseur as to all things tea. I bow to your lead here. I must admit that I only drink Iced Tea when it is warm outside. I never really was brought up around any drinking of hot tea. Your facts were very interesting & I wiil now explore the "other" tea.

Thanks Focks

David, I'll tell you what, when I get all of the tea's, I will put together three sample bags and send them out, then you can try them. it would be good to get a second opinion on them.

In fact, I think I need to send a set to Dragon as well.

"The soothing and flavorful character of Organic Green Tea combined with the benefits of Organic Ganoderma. Ganoderma Lucidum is a rare mushroom/herb that has been in use by aristocrates in emporers for 2000 years." ....

The list of benefits is very long.. and probably a bit altruistic if the truth be known. However, I do drink the coffee version and I have to say, it's does give me quite a kick. My daughter sells them on her website. PM me if you're interested and i'll send you the link.

Cool

This thread has become most interesting to me. Truthfully, I never thought much of hot tea but it seems as there are definite benefits.

Thanks for showing this "old dog" a new trick...
