Matcha buyers guide
Organic Matcha available in 16 different flavors
Matcha tea is made from finely ground tea leaves. Originally this was only green tea, but has been expanded to include other types of tea and now added flavors. 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.
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. To make a great latte, or to add flavors you want a matcha that is more neutral and less grassy tasting. This allows the matcha to pair perfectly with the milk and tea.
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.
