Matcha Green Tea?

So recently I've discovered a craving for green tea (lattes), such as the ones from Blenz. Does anybody know where I can find matcha green tea powder for a reasonable price? I went to teaopia at Richmond Centre today and it was like $28 for a tiny carton..

Thanks!

Matcha has different qualities, so $30 for a small tin is about right for the good quality stuff.

FYI, there is no need for the "green tea" after Matcha, as "Matcha" means green tea.

Not sure about powder, but Costco has very good matcha tea bags. There is also powder in the wrapping so you have to turn it upside down and shake as well.

Not to be annoying but how would you rate it and what brand? Does it taste okay (rich/sweet), how many servings, etc?

It tastes fine to me.. rich-ish?
Uhh.. comparable to the green tea you can buy at boosterjuice for $25. (I use it to make my own Matcha Monsoon )

The label says: Ujinotsuyu - Matcha Hagoroma green tea powder.
Contains 40g. Servings really depends on how much you use, 40g is quite alot for just $6.

edit:
Oh they have a website too:
www.ujinotsuyu.co.jp

Awesome, thanks for the heads up! Do you think I'd be able to make drinks like green tea lattes with this? Or is it just for adding for mixes, shakes, etc?

That's the same stuff I get. It's cheap and is pretty damned good.
I get mine from a place in Landsdowne mall. It's like this place that sells dried chinese snacks and sauces, right by the farm market.

Not sure if you can find it at every Walmart locations.

Try Landsdowne mall in Richmond . There's a tea place . You have to look around for it since I don't really know where it's placed .

That's the store, right near the coffee shop. I haven't actually been there in a couple months so it's quite possible that have stopped carrying it.
As RCubed mentioned, T&T stocks it as well, you might want to check there.

That's hella expensive. Sounds like very high end stuff, I should make it a point to head into blenz and try their matcha stuff then.

Went to T&T today and got the small carton like you guys suggested, my god the pictures are quite deceiving, the carton was tiny! Haha oh well, it well probably last me a while. It was $5.99 +tax. I also got this other one called Jardin Green Tea Latte powder for $5.99 (20 packets).. Let you guys know how they are soon

Not sure if you're a hardcore matchaa fan, but if you get ceremonial tea from Blenz served in a bowl, whisked until there's no chunks, roughly the same price as the matchaa latte (i think?) you get a hella good energy from it. Never had a crash since there's no sugar just strictly matchaa tea with hot water
