  • Too many matcha brands to choose from.

    Feeling confused because you are a first-time matcha buyer? –Totally agree, they vary widely in quality. The first important thing is always make sure you are buying 100% pure matcha green tea powder, no added sugar or any artificial. Next step, the most significant distinction lies among the grades. Our premium ceremonial grade is made from the first harvested and youngest tea leaves and has a mellow flavour. Best for if you plan to drink in tradition way–with just water. Also read our matcha grade guide where you can discover how to recognise the different types of grades. Lastly, but not less important, always chose organic! You can find the organic symbol on the tin only if it's 100% organic and certified by the relevant authorities like our matcha tea.

 

  • The fresher the more flavour and benefits.

    Matcha usually lasts about two years in the original package, however once you open it, we strongly recommend to use it within 2 months for the best flavour and to assure you can benefit completely from its nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants.

  • Helpful tools, that’s what you might need.

    Making a cup of matcha it's as easy as 1,2,3... if you know how to do it! Making a cup of matcha withouth the right instructions may result in a tea full of clumps with a rough consistency, especially if you just stir it with a fork or a spoon. You can solve this with a traditional bamboo whisk (chasen). Which is particularly designed to break up clumps and will help create a frothy layer of foam on the tea. Alternatively you can use a milk frother. More detailed instructions and tips.

 

  • Sweeten the taste. 

    As matcha has an intense grassy, umami flavour, a taste you may not be familiar with, sometimes it can be challenging for beginners to start with a pure Matcha. If you are new in getting all the benefits from drinking matcha, don’t hesitate to add unrefined sugars or natural sweeteners. Alternatively you can find more inspiration from our recipes.
