ORGANIC MATCHA GREEN TEA, powder, superior grade
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Botanical Name: Camellia sinensis
Origin: Japan, Nishio region
Production: Matcha is known to be the finest green tea in the world. Shade-grown (to enhance chlorophyll content) and hand-picked, it is made from the finest whole tea leaves. After stems and veins have been removed, the leaves (aka Tencha) are carefully stone ground on artisanal granite mills to produce a very fine (5-10 microns) powder which means you are consuming the entire leaf when drinking Matcha.
There are many different grades of Matcha, ranging from ceremonial grade (most expensive and primarily used for tea ceremonies in Japan) to Ingredient/Food grade (more affordable as it is blended with older leaves, resulting in a stronger flavor). This Superior grade Matcha is an excellent choice for a tasty and healthful drinking Matcha with a rich and delicate flavor.
Qualities: Matcha drinkers receive 100% of the benefits of the whole green tea leaf, enjoying and benefiting from its high levels of antioxidants (including the powerful EGCg), amino acids, vitamins, minerals (such as selenium, chromium, zinc, and magnesium), chlorophyll and fiber. Some studies have shown matcha to assist in reversing cancer and boosting metabolism.
Classic Japanese Matcha tea preparation:
- Place appx 1/2-1 tsp of matcha into a small hand sifter over a teacup or bowl
- Sift the Matcha into the cup/bowl to avoid clumps from forming in the tea (optional, but strongly recommended)
- Add 2-3 oz. (less than 1/3rd of the cup/bowl) of pre-boiled water (~180F/80C)
- Using a bamboo (or other whisks), whisk the tea briskly in an "m" or "w" motion. This whisking process aerates the tea, creating a nice frothy layer on the surface
- Gently rub the surface with the bamboo whisk to rid the froth of any large air bubbles.
- Add up to 6 oz. of hot water to taste (optional)
- To make a matcha latte, add some milk to taste (optional)
Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place. Light exposure will fade the powder and lower the quality!

Matcha Green Tea
I just recently started liking matcha green tea although I like matcha desserts in the past. I decided to be much healthier with a bit of cheat treats. I learned that matcha should be in a superior grade or a ceremonial grade in order to consume all the health benefits from it. I must say that I like the matcha green tea that I got from Om Foods because it is really a superior grade and the amount that they provided for a good price is perfect.
Matcha snob and loved it
Matcha snob, have always bought the grand cru or ceremonial matcha as it's always been the smoothest. This one from OM mixes very smoothly. I use it in my milk frother and it's delicious. Will be switching to this for sure now.
