Matcha is widely considered to be the most unique (and nutritious) tea on the planet! Whipped into an intense frothy liquor, we call it the "espresso of tea." Matcha is creamy, oceanic, fragrant and potent. It's the strongest of any tea providing a healthy boost for mind and body with its powerful vitamins and minerals. Our matcha is ceremonial grade, stone-ground, organic-certified, shade-grown matcha tea prepared in the traditional Japanese way. Not messing with a good thing, our matcha contains no fillers, sugars or other additives. Pure. Delicious. Matcha.
Studies have shown matcha to have over 10x the nutrients of standard green tea. It's reported to contain 70x the antioxidants of orange juice and 9x the beta carotene of spinach. It's highly energizing and calming at the same time. It is often used to boost metabolism, awaken the mind and uplift your mood. With its fresh bittersweet intense green tea taste, matcha is as much about how it makes you feel as it is about rich, vibrant, green flavor.
Our Certified Organic ceremonial grade matcha is made using tencha leaf grown on a single-estate in Kagoshima using the Saemidori cultivar and is custom ground and packaged for us in Shizuoka, Japan. Our ceremonial grade matcha is produced using only the finest leaves of the tea plant picked in spring (first flush). After meticulously removing the stems, the freshly harvested leaves are carefully ground to a fine talc-like powder based on centuries old practices passed down through generations of tea masters. Our Japanese providers have been producing this tea agrochemical-free since 1994 and became USDA Certified Organic in 2004.

- How to Make Matcha:
- Matcha is best when whisked up to a frothy liquor using a small bowl and a bamboo whisk. For best results, sift 1 gram (about 1/2 teaspoon) into bowl. Add 2-3 ounces of 170-180 F degree filtered water. Briskly whisk using a "W" pattern until frothy.
