Best Quality Matcha
of organic Matcha
Matcha is finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea leaves, traditionally consumed in East Asia. It is special in two aspects of farming and processing: the green tea plants used for matcha are shade-grown for three to four weeks before harvest, and the stems and veins are removed during processing. During shaded growth, the plant Camellia sinensis produces more theanine and caffeine. The powdered form of matcha is consumed differently from tea leaves or tea bags, as it is suspended in a liquid, typically water or milk.
The traditional Japanese tea ceremony centers on the preparation, serving, and drinking of matcha as hot tea, and embodies a meditative spirituality. In modern times, matcha is also used to flavor and dye foods such as mochi and soba noodles, green tea ice cream, matcha lattes, and a variety of Japanese wagashi confectionery. Matcha used in ceremonies is referred to as ceremonial-grade, meaning that the powder is of a high enough quality to be used in the tea ceremony. Lower-quality matcha is referred to as culinary-grade, but no standard industry definition or requirements exist for matcha.
Blends of matcha are given poetic names known as chamei (“tea names”) either by the producing plantation, shop, or creator of the blend, or by the grand master of a particular tea tradition. When a blend is named by the grand master of a tea ceremony lineage, it becomes known as the master’s konomi.
Read what Get my Matcha customers have to say about the product.
As a daily matcha drinker for more than 5 years, I have tried more brands of matcha than I can count. Matcha from Matcha Powder Tea is simply one of the best that I have ever tried. It is very rich, smooth and creamy. I simply cannot get through my day without it. Try it and you will not be disappointed.
A wonderful way to start the morning or get a leg up on the afternoon — refreshing, but supportive. Leaves you serene but awake.
I absolutely love Matcha and look forward to my daily cup (or two!). It has a divine, velvety mouth-feel and an incomparable taste — definitely the best matcha I have tasted anywhere.
