MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI once dated a guy who claimed it was a super health food. I never heard of it prior to dating him. Reluctantly, I eventually believed him. But after three months of buying a good brand (through amazon.com) and consuming it daily there were no noticeable improvements in my blood work whatsoever.
I believe I saw it in a Whole Foods, in Boca Raton, Florida. My only time in one of those places, Kathy Lee Gifford was there for a book signing, which we were buying as a gift for one of her fans we know.
Seemed like Whole Foods had a big selection, and I wondered what the stuff was. Now thanks to this thread, and especially "Last Humanity", I know. It did cost more than some other teas, but not a lot more, relatively speaking, given that many things in Whole Foods appear to be high-priced. I'm not real keen on so-called organic food.
But this discussion had gotten me interested in Matcha, if only for the flavor aspect. I've got a couple of teapots with infusers, so I could use this tea whether loose or in bags. And I do love tea. So I may go to our local Whole Foods and look for some.
