ORGANIC MATCHA GREEN TEA, powder, superior grade
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!

The best of the best!
I've tried quite a few brands of matcha tea now, and can honestly report this is the finest one so far. Drinking it daily has increased my metabolism, added TONS of extra energy and improved my mood at the same time. It's an interesting feeling of getting a lovely buzz, with super clarity.. and yet remaining calm at the same tiime! The color of mine is a bright emerald green, as it should look. It's fresh and super tasty, with only a hint of bitterness (due to the fact I add 1.5 tsp. to my bowl). I feel wonderful whenever I drink it, and have no shame in saying that's 2 -3 times a day now. Combining this with OM's fantastic mushroom blend in the a.m, and a multitude of other healthful products they sell, I'm good until bedtime now. No more "sleeping sickness" due to eating junk food and too much sugar for me!
This matcha is very good quality, very good tasting.
