A finely-ground green tea used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies, our Ceremonial Matcha is shade grown and slowly milled to retain its distinct emerald color and fresh, creamy taste. Our finest grade of Japanese Matcha.
HOW IT TASTES
High quality organic Matcha is finely-ground in specially-designed sealed production rooms, using only the flesh of the green tea leaf. The milling is very slow and kept at cool temperatures to retain the fresh rich taste of the tea. The bright green color and distinctive taste-fresh, sweet, and grassy-are completely natural. Look for the signature 'umami' of the tea, a savory and satisfying depth, augmented by the frothed texture that Matcha is known and loved for.
Our Organic Matcha comes from Kagoshima and Shizuoka in Japan, plucked from bushes that are intentionally shaded from the sun during the spring first flush, a process that enhances the amount of chlorophyll and theanine (a beneficial amino acid) in the leaf. Originally used in Japanese tea ceremonies, Matcha is now making its way from the traditional tea house into beverages, foods, and confections.
