For this MatchaDNA review we tested Organic Ceremonial Matcha Green Tea Powder which is the highest grade available from Matcha DNA.
MatchDNA Ceremonial Matcha Green Tea Powder is a premium matcha green tea powder made from finest young leaves from organic tea farms in the pristine mountains of Fujian province in China.
The first thing that you may notice about this matcha is that it comes from China and not Japan.
We generally prefer Japanese matcha, but we felt that this Chinese matcha deserved our attention because of all of the favorable Amazon Reviews.
There have been concerns of high lead levels in matcha from China, but Match DNA lead protocols ensure a safe lead free product.
MatchaDNA is lab tested for lead and heavy metals to ensure a lead free product.
It is also USDA certified Organic, Kosher and Parve.
It is also certified to the highest standards of the NOP, and EU.
I should also add that MatchaDNA offers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, so you can be assured of receiving your money back if you do not like the product.
Now that we are aware of the Matcha DNA lead facts, let's move on to the MatchaDNA Review
MatchaDNA Review Of Color and Grind
For this MatchaDNA review we probably should have split up the color and grind review, so we will review them separately here.
First the Good:
The grind of the MatchaDNA Organic Ceremonial Matcha Green Tea Powder was very fine and high quality. This is exactly what we are looking for in a high grade ceremonial tea powder.
The color of the of the MatchaDNA Organic Ceremonial Matcha Green Tea Powder was one of the worst that we have seen.
It was a very dull almost muddy green color. Not the vibrant green color that we are used to in super premium quality ceremonial matcha.
You can see the poor color in the photo below.
The aroma of the MatchaDNA Organic Ceremonial Green Tea Powder was quite pungent. It was very strong and earthy, almost barnyard like.
I know that doesn't sound good, but if you buy it and smell it, you will understand what I mean.
Next Step for the MatchaDNA Review is to prepare the matcha green tea and rate it on taste.
MatchaDNA Review - Taste
This was the big surprise in the Matcha DNA review!
We were expecting a strong, pungent taste from this matcha green tea, because of the smell of the powder, but the matcha tea was surprisingly mild and mellow.
In fact, it was a very enjoyable matcha green tea to drink.
Would I recommend MatchaDNA Organic Ceremonial Green Tea Powder?
There are way too many really good matchas out there today that I would recommend long before Matcha DNA, but if you are adventurous, give it a try!
