Matcha is the star of the centuries-old Japanese tea ceremony. The tea is prepared traditionally in single portions, whipped to a frothy green with a bamboo whisk. Now, we humbly offer it to our citizens in round, unbleached tea bags. Enjoy the ease of "everyday ceremony" as you drink to your health and please your palate.
We’ve married the exquisite organic Japanese matcha powder with fine, organic green leaf tea. We invite you to sip the fresh, springtime-grassy flavor of this jade hued cup. This tea’s smooth character makes it a good partner with sweet or savory foods. This light and crisp infusion is clean, smooth and refreshing. Enjoy hot or iced!
As you open this tin, you may notice a faint green cloud, a wisp of powder. This is the beauty of matcha which comes from tencha leaves, a green tea that lives under shade three weeks before harvest. Its pure dried leaves, minus their fine veins and stems, are then ground into a fine powder. This powder, which seeps a bit from our tea bags and finds its way to the bottom of your cup, is meant to be consumed – just as in the Japanese tea ceremony. With it, you are sipping the healthful antioxidant benefits of this smooth-tasting favorite.
