For this Tenzo Matcha Review we are evaluating the organic, ceremonial grade matcha from the Tenzo Tea Company.
The Tenzo Tea Company was started in order to make a difference in the world by sharing better energy and products with people all over the planet.
That's great, but is the matcha any good?
Tenzo Matcha Overview
We have negotiated a Tenzo matcha review discount with Tenzo Tea.
Use discount code - CONNECTION15 to receive a 15% discount on your order.
For this Tenzo Matcha Review we purchased the Tenzo Matcha Starter Kit, which comes with 60 grams of Tenzo ceremonial grade matcha, a tin storage container, a stainless steel 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon and a power mixer/milk frother, complete with its own stand.
We really like the starter kit!
It is perfect for those that are looking to try matcha for the first time and we loved the milk frother for mixing our matcha green tea.
The stand for the milk frother is also awesome and keeps the frother handy on the counter instead of lost in a drawer somewhere.
Here is a video showing showing you how the Tenzo Tea Company was concieved and what they are all about.
Now that you know the Tenzo Tea story, let's get on with the Tenzo Matcha Review!
One thing we found about the Tenzo Matcha is that It is packaged differently than most of the best matcha powder.
We are used to seeing a tin with a pop top similar to a soda can, but the Tenzo Matcha comes in a foil pouch, along with an empty tin can which you can put the matcha powder in, as you can see in the photo below.
They do this because they have a subscription available if you prefer, where you keep the tin and they send you refills monthly.
This is strictly an option, you can also purchase just the match one time.
It is cheaper if you subscribe however,
Once we opened the can of Tenzo Matcha, and poured it into the tin, we could smell that classic grassy aroma that all great matcha powder has.
Tenzo Matcha Review Of Color and Grind
The Tenzo Matcha has a very fine grind, which did make it a little clumpy, but that did not affect the emulsion when we used the milk frother.
When using the milk frother, as opposed to a matcha whisk, you can make your matcha green tea without having to sift it!
The color is a rich emerald green, that says high quality matcha!
You can see the color and grind in the photo below.
So far, we like what we see. Tenzo Matcha has everything that we look for in the finest ceremonial grade matchas.
Next Step for the Tenzo Matcha Review is to prepare the matcha green tea and rate it on taste.
Tenzo Matcha Review - Taste
This is where the Tenzo matcha really shines.
Tenzo was without a doubt, one of our favorite matcha powders that we have tried yet,
We prepared the Tenzo Matcha green tea with the milk frother that we recieved in the matcha starter kit.
After we had tasted the matcha green tea on its own, we prepared a matcha latte with the tenzo matcha powder.
Tenzo Matcha has a creamy matcha green tea taste, with earthy undertones and a slightly grassy taste.
We usually like a bolder tasting matcha, but we are very impresssed with the creaminess of the Tenzo matcha.
We really loved the Tenzo matcha latte!
Here is the recipe below!
We just have to say, WOW!
We are so impressed with the Tenzo matcha and all that the company stands for.
It is by far our favorite tasting matcha and if you are new to matcha, the starter kit is an awesome way to start your matcha journey.
It is slightly clumpy, which could be an issue idf you were making it with a matcha whisk.
You would have to sift it.
That is not necessary if you use the milk frother.
Tenzo offers a subscription which can save you quite a bit of money, but you can also just buy matcha powder anytime.
As matcha continues to become the new coffee, Tenzo matcha will be carving its own piece of the matcha market.
