Tasting Notes and Use: Our organic culinary grade matcha is a robust, high-quality green tea powder that is wonderful for matcha lattes, cold brew, smoothies, baking, and cooking. Our Culinary Matcha has a bold flavor, smooth texture, rich vegetal notes, and a vibrant green color.
Size Bags + Serving Size: For this grade of matcha, 1 teaspoon equals approximately 1 serving. 1 serving equals a 4-8 oz cup of whisked prepared matcha. This matcha is offered in two size bags:
- 100 gram (3.5 oz) approximately 50 servings
- 227 gram (8.0 oz) approximately 110 servings
Origin and Cultivation: Culinary matcha is harvested during the mid-Summer, which is later in the growing season, and is ground into a coarser powder than ceremonial matcha power. The result is a robust and bold matcha that stands up well to other ingredients for lattes and baking.
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.
