Matcha Ceremonial Organic Tin

  • 2900


Tasting Notes and Use: This ultra-premium ceremonial matcha has a vibrant green color, is ground super-fine to facilitate incredible frothing and foam, and has a smooth flavor with a lovely crisp finish. Vegetal notes, such as sweet peas, linger with the rich grassy matcha notes. Since this matcha is incredibly smooth, savory, and sweet, it is our ideal choice to drink on it's own or in a premium latte.  

Size of Tins + Serving Size: For this grade of matcha, 1/2 teaspoon equals approximately 1 serving. 1 serving equals a 2-4 oz cup of whisked prepared matcha.  This matcha is offered in two size tins:

  • 29 gram (1.02 oz) approximately 29 servings
  • 80 gram (2.82 oz) approximately 80 servings

Origin and Cultivation: Our organic ceremonial matcha is shade grown and made from the most tender and premium hand-picked young leaves of the Saemidori cultivar. It possesses a complex, smooth, savory, and sweet flavor.

This organic matcha is harvested early in the growing season, during the First Flush in early springtime, which creates the smooth and complex flavor that is never bitter. Our ceremonial matcha is stone ground very finely, allowing the matcha to whisk and froth easily.

Both the culinary and ceremonial grades of our organic matcha are cultivated from shade grown tencha*  tea leaves at a tea garden in Shizuoka, Japan; they are then stone ground into the green tea powder at the same garden.

 *Tencha refers to the fluffy, minimally-processed tea leaves that are specifically grown and prepared for matcha production. Tencha is what the leaves are called once they have been harvested, steamed, dried, and baked but have not been be stone-ground or finely milled yet. Once the tencha leaves have been ground into a fine powder, tencha transforms into the final product — matcha.
