By Tea Guru August 28th, 2019
Matcha Green tea
Organic Matcha available in 16 different flavors
Matcha tea is made from finely ground tea leaves, typically green tea. Tea connoisseurs often spend a lot of money on premium grade matcha, sometimes known as ceremonial grade. This grade uses very select leaves from shade grown plants, giving it a rich and grassy flavor.
How much caffeine is in green tea matcha versus just plain green tea?
A typical 8 ounce cup of green tea has around 20-30mg of caffeine. The Matcha equivalent is 60-70mg.
Matcha Lattes and flavored matcha
When you want to try beverages such as matcha lattes, smoothies, shakes or even incorporate matcha into baked goods or desserts, there is no need to spend a huge amount of money on ultra expensive matcha that will get masked by milk, flavors or smoothie ingredient. You just want a good quality, organic green tea matcha.
Choosing a flavored matcha
Many matcha varieties are sold in tins and bags, committing you to a larger quantity. Single serving sachets offers added convenience by allowing your matcha to remain fresh in individually sealed pouches. Now with more flavors of matcha available, the question is - what flavor will you choose?
If you are not sure, we recommend purchasing a single serving matcha variety pack. Here you can try 16 different samples of matcha to find out your favorites. Each matcha sachet holds 3 grams of matcha, allowing you to make a full 16 ounces of tea.
Farm to cup direct sourcing
We source our organic matcha direct from a family owned tea farm that has many decades of experience. Each matcha is flavored with natural extracts preserving and unleashing the flavor and aromas from the original ingredient.
There are many ways to prepare matcha, both hot, cold, as a latte or in a smoothie. Traditionally, Matcha is whisked. But another method is to use an electric frother. This tool is great if you are looking to whip up the milk into a nice foam.
