Have you ever had matcha powder before? This was my first time. It seemed a little expensive to me but considering 1 glass has the benefit of 10 glasses of green tea, I’m coming around. You can use anywhere from 1/2 teaspoon to 1 full teaspoon per 8 ounces of water—using a smaller serving will help stretch your dollar even further.
