Yes Matcha tea is so much better in so many ways than that crap called Coffee.
I've been off coffee for about a year only drink matcha everyday and wow just wow.

I have a tin at home but don't drink it. I also have matcha latte in powder form at home just bought from T&T, imported from Japan.

I get the 9 oz cans of organic matcha powder from Costco, prefer the tatse to the conventional green tea I was used to.

Can you take Chinese tea leaves and ground it to a fine powder to use? Saw a YouTube video where they used green tea leaves and processed.

The ones you buy pre ground is very expensive.

Well, considering how bad [spam removed] has become, at least in most coffee shops I know, I am thinking of experimenting with tea, so thanks for the tip.

Costco online or in the warehouse? I've never been able to find just matcha... I've found the green tea bags with some matcha added in the bag but not the pure powder. I know I can get it online in the huge bag ($90 I think it was... >.>) Would prefer a can & in person purchase though.

Depends some grades are higher than others so the price goes up.

I stopped buying from David's tea. I mean its great for starters to matcha but once I started getting mine from http://www.hibiki-an.com I stopped messing with David's tea's. Like litterally had some of their house matcha and the day I took some I was hyper to the point it was scary.

David's tea actually encourages that I stick with their "Buzz tea" line of teas if I really want to be awake. (including Electric lemonade, Chocolate rocket, etc)
More than anything Matcha.

I've only seen it at the Etobicoke Costco in the GTA, this exact same one but $20

Thanks for the link. I've been wanting to get more ever since I visited Uji a month ago.
