This stuff is GOLD.
Love this stuff! Matcha has been a wonderful substitute for coffee, as coffee tends to upset my stomach. The great thing about this is that it also includes Lion's Mane which is a wonderful medicinal mushroom. I find that the combo of matcha and Lion's Mane gives me the energy and mental clarity I need to start my day or pick me up in the afternoon without any stomach upset or crash later. I could not recommend this stuff enough! If you're already drinking matcha, there is NO reason not to start using one with the additional benefits of mushrooms.

Stable Energy, Improved Focus and Memory
I love this blend of ceremonial grade matcha with lion's mane from Four Sigmatic. I was manually mixing lion's mane powder in my matcha before this product and this drink is perfection - it contains just the right amounts of both. Matcha provides a gentle energy boost, with antioxidant properties and lion's mane helps improve my focus and memory. I love starting my day with this and it makes a noticeable difference when it is missing. I prepare this just like I would any other matcha and sometimes top it off with frothed nutmilk before drinking it. You don't have to be all fancy like me with my matcha whisk. My husband just mixes it with a fork and it also does the job. :)

I love this mushroom matcha!
I just purchased my second tin of this. I really love it. I have made it with hot water and hemp milk and also have tried adding a little egg nog during the holidays to spice it up. It it great any way you mix it! I will continue to purchase this in the future.
Previous review: I am fairly new to matcha, but am a big fan of Four Sigmatic products. I could not wait to try this when it arrived today and was not disappointed. I really enjoyed the taste and it mixed easily. I look forward to trying some of the recipe ideas mentioned in other reviews.

Earthy Matcha from a great company
I really enjoy the coffee with the cordyceps and chaga as well as the lion mane and chaga from four sigmatic. However my body doesn't love coffee everyday so I decided to try their matcha with lion's mane and ginger. I love the taste of matcha and I trust four sigmatic as a company to provide me with a safe quality mushroom product that contains the medicinal qualities that I'm looking for and this product does not disappoint. Great level energy after drinking it...
The taste is really different but yummy... there is an earthiness to the flavor and not as sweet as other Matcha that I have had.Â I mix in a little bit of cream with hot water and it is the perfect start to my work day. I am also gonna try some in a chai smoothie as I think the flavor profile would go well with that.
Only negative is the bag inside the tin is a little difficult to open and when I opened a corner using the small indentation in the bag the product exploded on my shirt and face and the bag ripped more than I wanted it to.

Matcha + Mushrooms = Winner!!
After I developed GERD, I could no longer enjoy coffee without it triggering symptoms of acid reflux. Then I discovered mushroom coffee and I was able to drink it without getting acid reflux or feeling jittery. I've been reading about the health benefits of matcha tea, so when I saw that Four Sigmatic came out with a matcha tea that also has mushrooms, I couldn't wait to try it! It did not disappoint. It is very easy on my stomach, I don't feel jittery at all, and it makes me feel energized and calm at the same time. Matcha has a bit of a bitter taste that takes some getting used to, but if you continue to drink it you start to acquire a taste for it. Now I can't go one day without having my cup of mushroom matcha tea! Highly recommend.

Quality Products Specially Blended
I tried matcha powder as a way to reduce my coffee intake, especially in the afternoon, since the acid bothers my stomach. I love the fact that Four Sigmatic's products including this fabulous matcha powder, are often combined with other potent ingredients such as Lion's Mane or immune building astragalus. For about $1.65 a serving (much less than my normal coffee run) I am feeding my body something healthy and I still get the afternoon boost I am seeking. I have tried several products from Four Sigmatic and I can attest they not only taste good but the company truly cares about providing a quality healthy product. Do yourself a favor and research them, you will be glad you did.

This is a delicious matcha! I drink lions mane daily however I was skeptical at first about incorporating it into a matcha, thinking the flavor wouldnâ€™t be right. But itâ€™s AMAZING!! Iâ€™ve actually replaced my morning coffee with a mushroom matcha latte. I highly recommend it, along with all of Four Sigmaticâ€™s products!

I try to get away from coffee on a daily basis, and matcha has been a super beneficial way for me to do that! So to find a good quality matcha with the added benefits from mushrooms and ginger is a wonderful gift. The ginger adds a nice kick and is a great way to start or end my meals to ease digestion.

Great energy and focus
I'm a huge fan of Four Sigmatic! I have noticed a huge boost in energy and overall functionality since I began taking their Lion's Mane elixer and this Matcha product if I want a bit of caffeine as well. Their Reishi elixer has helped me mellow out in the evening and reduce a great deal of my anxiety, of which I am grateful. To top it all off, they give a lot of free products to cancer patients out of the goodness of their hearts. They are very involved with their customers. I can't say enough good things about Four Sigmatic :)

If you can stand the taste, the results are awesome
My main goal with this product was to benefit from all that it has to offer. Improved digestion, cognitive boost, etc. In that area, Four Sigmatic delivers. However, this stuff really tastes bad. Yes, as others have said, "Grassy" is a good way to describe it. I was able to choke down about 75% of the drink on my first try - but even then I could feel a difference. So I do believe the stuff delivers on its promises in terms of its positive effects. But man, what we need is a website dedicated to the ways to make this stuff more edible. Now the website talks about putting it in ice cream and even baking it into cookies. So I am going to experiment a bit with this. Maybe make some brownies with this in it and see how it goes. The taste is the only reason for the loss of a star - but if you are someone who is already very comfortable with the "grassy" type flavor, then in your case, this probably deserves 5 stars.
UPDATE: Ok, I have the low down for folks that want the effects but don't enjoy the taste. First, Ice Cream. This works extremely well but make sure to thoroughly mix the powder into the ice cream. To be honest, I did not test with ice cream. I went with gelato and some yogurt ice cream and it worked great in both cases. Now, if you are like me and you want to use this in the morning , which might be an odd time of day for ice cream, I have also tested it with coffee. More specifically, a Venti Starbucks Mocha. This works extremely well. The only downside is that it is difficult to bet it blended as it does tend to clump or adhere to the side of the container it is in. However, that is general issue with this super fine powder that you would have to deal with in any case. Changed my review to 5 stars since the taste is no longer an issue for me!
