For this Pique Sun Goddess Matcha Review we evaluated the Organic Ceremonial Grade Japanese Matcha Green Tea Powder from Pique Tea.
Sun Goddess Matcha is the Organic Ceremonial Matcha from the Pique Tea Company. It is quadruple toxin screened for heavy metals, pesticides, toxic molds, and radioactive isotopes to ensure its safety.
Pique Sun Goddess Matcha Overview
For this Pique Sun Goddess Matcha review, we ordered directly from the Pique Tea website and we were very pleased with the ease of ordering and the quick delivery.
We received the order in a couple of days and we were quite intrigued with the packaging, which is very unlike most of our choices for best matcha powder.
Pique refers to the packaging as matcha sticks.
We really like the concept of single serve matcha, both for the convenience and also the powder should stay fresh longer because each packet is individually sealed.
Of course the downside is that more packaging is not better for the environment.
You can see the packaging in the photo below.
We should mention here that Pique Tea is known for there innovative tea crystals. They have a process by which they brew tea and then create crystals that can be mixed with water to make tea.
This is not what they do with their Sun Goddess Matcha.
The Sun Goddess matcha is real matcha, which if very finely ground, young green tea leaves that have been shade grown for long periods in order to develop the L-theanine and antioxidants that good matcha is known for.
Here is a video from the founder of Pique Tea.
One of the things that we look for when reviewing any matcha brand is a money back guarantee and in that regard Pique tea does not disappoint.
Here is their money back guarantee:

That is the way it should be! A company that stands behind their product 100%!
Another impressive fact is that they have over 15,000 5 star reviews!
Very impressive, but let's get on with the Pique Sun Goddess matcha review of the color, grind and taste.
Pique Sun Goddess Matcha Review Of Color and Grind
We were very impressed by the vibrant green color of the Pique Sunn Goddess Matcha and the grind was ultra fine.
We usually sift our matcha to alleviate any clumping, but the Sun Goddess matcha comes out of the packet ready to mix. No sifting is needed.
It also has a wonderfully earthy smell that indicates we are in for a treat with the taste test portion of our review.
You can see the color and grind compared to other top rated matchas in the photo below.
So far, Pique Sun Goddess Matcha has everything that we look for in our quest for the best matcha powder, but we still have to review the most important trait.
Next Step for the Pique Sun Goddess Matcha Review is to prepare the matcha green tea and rate it on taste.
Pique Sun Goddess Matcha Review - Taste
We prepared the Pique Sun Goddess Matcha green tea in the traditional method, with a bamboo whisk and bowl.
This produced that beautiful froth on top of the matcha green tea that we look forward to when preparing the finest ceremonial grade matcha.
Pique Sun Goddess Matcha has a classic rich matcha green tea taste, slightly more bold that some matchas, but still smooth and creamy.
We really like the taste of the Pique Sun Goddess Matcha, and it is going to replace some of our top rated matchas here at Matcha Connection!
The single serve packaging really seems to lock in the freshness and preserves that slightly sweet taste with grassy undertones.
I must admit that when we started this Pique Sun Goddess matcha review, I was concerned that it would not be very good simply because they did not use traditional matcha packaging, but I could not have been more wrong.
I am very excited to add Pique Sun Goddess matcha to my favorite matchas and I recommend that you do the same.
The only negative thing that I see with this matcha is that the single serve packaging is not very environmentally friendly, but it makes this matcha so convenient and I believe it also contibutes to its freshness and locks in the flavor.
