Our Standard Grade Matcha is from Isa Bay in Mie Prefecture Japan which has 800 years of history for producing high quality tea. This Matcha is made using finest hand-picked tea buds. Suitable for home baking and smoothies.

Matcha is made from shade-grown tea leaves also used to make gyokuro. Tea bushes are covered up to 3 weeks before harvest to prevent direct sunlight. This slows down growth, and causes the production of amino acids. Matcha is stone ground to a fine powder through the use of specially designed granite stone mills. It can take up to one hour to grind 30 grams of matcha.

The flavour of matcha is dominated by its amino acids. The highest grades of matcha have more intense sweetness and deeper flavour.

Recently Match has been used cooking mainly to make cakes, sweets, ice cream etc, and this grade of Matcha is perfect to try out your own recepies.

Researchers found that concentration of the antioxidants available from drinking matcha is 10 times greater than the amount of EGCG available from other fine green teas. Matcha is also said to boost metabolism and help reduce cholesterol levels when it is drunk regularly.
