“I’ve tried several ceremonial grade matcha from Amazon and this one has the best color, flavor and consistency.” – Jnelson

A certified organic matcha that is truly vibrant green, delicious and all-rounded. This matcha is made with the First Harvest tea leaves from the hilly Kirishima region just outside of Kagoshima city. The result is a smooth, rich creaminess with deep umami and pleasant notes of cacao. Enjoy a flavorful matcha latte, matcha tea usucha or mix it into your smoothies or your favorite baked goods recipe.

We recommend 1 tsp (2 grams) to make a cup of matcha tea or half a cup of matcha latte. Our 40g tin makes at least 20 cups of tea.

To prolong freshness, keep refrigerated once opened. We recommend finishing the tin within 1 -2 months after opening for the best experience. 

Matcha Latte

2 tsp matcha, 2 oz water, 7 oz milk. Mix matcha and water first, add to milk. 

Sweeten to taste (we like using brown sugar).

Matcha Tea

1 tsp matcha, 6 oz water. Mix using a milk frother.

Not the traditional preparation, but a great intro for those keen to explore a real matcha experience.

$25 really expensive for just over 1 oz of tea!

1 serving is actually only 2 grams (0.07 oz), and we hear that some people prefer to use just 1 gram to make tea. So a little matcha really goes a long way. 

Where is your tea grown?

Our products are made from tea that is 100% grown, harvested and processed in Japan.

I’m concerned about radiation and heavy metals in matcha! 

Short answer: there is no need to be. Each crop of tea is rigorously tested for different sources of contamination (including radiation and heavy metals), and the Japanese government also conducts their independent tests. Thus far, there is nothing to worry about. If you’d like more details, read them here.

Is your matcha organic?  

Yes, this matcha is certified organic by the Japanese Agricultural Standards (JAS), which is also recognized by USDA. 

What are the other ingredients in your matcha?

Just 100% matcha green tea powder. We call them “blends” because the tea master selects and blends together different tea leaves to achieve a specific taste outcome.  

Is this gluten free?

Our matcha only consists of tea leaves that are milled into a fine powder :)

Matcha that tastes good

Bad tasting food is rejected no matter how healthy or beneficial it may be. That is why our biggest priority is to make sure all the different matcha we offer tastes good and that you actually enjoy drinking it. 

Each type of matcha we offer is specially blended from different tea leaves to achieve a specific end result and use case. One type have a bolder, vegetal taste so that it pairs nicely with milk, others may have interesting notes like hazelnuts or asparagus or sweet peas when you prepare it as tea. 

Better energy and focus, without worry

Whether you enjoy matcha as a better coffee alternative, for relaxation, for general wellness or just love the taste, we would like you to do so with peace of mind. 

Each crop of tea used to make matcha is put to a rigorous set of tests to screen out any toxins and heavy metals, and the facilities used to pack the tea in Japan are certified to FSSC 22000, the gold standard in Food Safety Management Systems. 

Matcha from different Japanese tea regions

We work closely with producers from different tea regions in Japan (Uji & Kyoto, Kagoshima, Yame, Nishio) to find the best match at each price point. That means you get a variety of matcha to choose from and the best price-to-quality ratio for matcha available online.

As a traditional usucha preparation, the umami and vegetal notes are closely linked together and can be difficult to tell apart, but the finish is long and this is where the umami becomes clearly pronounced. The umami is strong and unlike any matcha I’ve tasted before.

For those who specifically ask for good Matcha on Amazon, go for Naoki. It’s hard to find good Matcha there in between so much ‘Matcha noise’ and cheap quality ones.⁣

They are one of the few companies selling matcha on Amazon that I would actually buy from.

It is very creamy, and has a good umami taste. But it is nevertheless sweet and has a long aftertaste. Of course, it isn’t bitter at all. I consider it to be a very smooth matcha. It’s hard for me to explain, but the taste is quite original.
