Not until they've released all of the Final Fantasy VII remake, surely. You should be good until about 2031.

Best matcha is generally accepted to be "ceremonial grade" from "Kyoto Uji" (or just Uji). You'll see "ceremonial grade" all the time, I'm not sure it means anything. I found one product that my local tea co carries that is sourced from Uji, so I just get that.

The trick is in brewing it properly. It can get very bitter if you're not careful. Water should be no more than 170F (just below boiling), and I find it's best to make a quick slurry (all the powder, with just a bit of water) before pouring in the rest of the water. And then I also add about a Tbsp of good quality (unrefined) coconut oil, for some healthy fat and to take the bitterness off. Dairy is known to interfere with the antioxidant benefits, so I skip that.

trag, are you doing this as a coffee alternative? and do you get results similar to spike, ie. alertness and reduced anxiety?

pretty sure spike just meant what kind is good from Whole Foods or Trader Joes, not "what part of Japan should I special order from"

Kind of both? I do two cups of black coffee with breakfast, then matcha in the afternoon.

At least wine lovers are smart enough to understand that alcohol free wine is called grape juice. Alcohol free beer is not beer, it's part abomination and part marketing. Drink if you want but don't fool yourself into calling it beer please.
