Our organic Barista-Grade Matcha is a blend of heirloom varietals from multi-generational farms located in the Kagoshima prefecture of Japan, where the rich volcanic soil contributes to a wonderfully nuanced flavor. This blend combines the young, nutrient-dense leaves of the first Spring harvest with the most premium leaves of the second harvest. The tea is shade grown for a portion of the season, harvested in the spring and summer, and stone ground resulting in a vibrant green and deliciously smooth Matcha Green Tea.
Organic shade-grown matcha is considered a super food, rich in antioxidants, polyphenols, a range of beneficial vitamins and minerals, as well as the combination of caffeine and l-theanine that results in a focused and relaxed alertness. Matcha will give you a more balanced and jitter-free energy boost throughout the day, without a peak and crash commonly experienced with coffee.
Whisk in hot water for a traditional cup, add frothed milk for a matcha latte, add to smoothies, or get creative with drinks like matcha lemonade and matcha soda. Matcha can also be shaken vigorously in a bottle of cold water for a quick nutritious energy boosting beverage.
Makes approximately 40 servings.
Organic Green Tea Powder
Each tea is unique and can be brewed differently according to personal preference. We provide brewing instructions as a starting point, but we encourage you to experiment with each tea and find the quantity, steep time, and number of infusions that works for you.
1. Add1 tsp matcha powder into a bowl or cup.
2. Add 3-4 oz 175 degree (not boiling) water.
3. Whisk in a zig zag motion until well mixed and light froth forms.
4. Enjoy as is, or add hot water or steamed milk to taste.
Keep tightly sealed in a cool, dry location. Can be stored in the refrigerator to preserve freshness, as long as it is tightly sealed to avoid absorption of moisture.
I’m loving the matcha, iced or hot! It’s so smooth and delicious. And very healthy. It’s also helped me cut back on coffee! It’s my new addiction 😊
Matcha - Kagoshima - Single Origin
I found this matcha on a trip to Jacksonville Beach FL recently and decided to stop buying matcha from the grocery store. This is a totally different product, and the care that is put into it is deeply felt.
Matcha - Organic Ceremonial Grade
The foam did the trick for me with this tea! After a long time of trying different teas to change my coffee habit, this yummy foamy tea gave me the feeling of coffee in a healthier package :).
