“This matcha is far superior to some of the other standard brands I drink, and so the slight increase in price is justified. It produces a rich and creamy matcha that isn’t bitter. In the future when I’m looking to treat myself, I’ll definitely splurge on Naoki’s seasonal harvests.” – Michael
This matcha is proudly made by a respected matcha producer in Uji city using tea from the Kyoto region. A blend of different tea cultivars (notably: Uji Hikari, Gokou), this refined tasting matcha boasts a mellow flavor with a gentle sweetness and a lasting umami note. Pick this blend for a truly refined matcha experience at home.
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.
1 tsp matcha, 2.5 oz water. Whisk with a bamboo whisk until frothy.
1 tsp matcha, 1.5 oz water. Carefully whisk with a bamboo whisk until frothy.
$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?
This matcha is not certified organic because we think non-organic tastes better. However we have organic options too. If you’d like to know more, we invite you to read this article.
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 :)
Suitable for usucha and koicha

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.

Not all matcha is made equal, and that’s why we spent years building relationships with some of the best tea estates, processing plants and tea masters in Japan so that we have access to some of the best tasting matcha around.

This matcha is one of the best I’ve had! It creates such a beautiful foam, and is so flavorful. I’m going to need to buy it often, I keep reaching for it over and over. Also, shipping is very fast and I find the packaging very simple and pretty.
The Chiran Harvest —
This blend is absolutely outstanding. I’m convinced it’s not necessary all matcha has to come from Uji Kyoto. It’s nice to change it up. Plus I’m not a single malt scotch kind of guy. So I enjoy the complexities of Multi-estate blends. The Chiran umami blend is just so. It casts a warm tonal. Vegetal to nutty, rounded. This smooth blend made it to my go to’s. I hear it is rare with a few kilos a year. I hope Naomi keeps it in their product line up/ portfolio. Excellent palate’s from Naoki.
