For those completely new to matcha

Versatile, easy to appreciate flavor profiles and budget friendly

If you’re new to matcha and you’re not sure where to begin, choosing a matcha that is all-rounded, easy on the palate, and budget friendly is the perfect pick for starters. This gives you the freedom to dip your toes into the world of matcha by exploring and appreciating its complex flavors through a variety of matcha preparations.

The blends we recommend are low in bitterness, have a smooth mouthfeel alongside a well-balanced flavor that is bold enough to stand through the milks and sugars. When made straight with water, the nuanced flavors are also pleasingly easy for you to appreciate.

Each of the blends we recommend have their own unique notes, but all of them will serve you the perfect cup of traditional usucha, lattes, and various iced matcha drinks.

For those looking to make desserts and baked goods

Vibrant green color with strong matcha flavor that stands out

When it comes to baked goods, it often involves baking the matcha in the oven which can result in the matcha burning and turning brown in color as it is sensitive to heat. However, it’s still possible for you to yield a vibrant green, delicious matcha flavored baked goods with quality matcha. 

Our recommended matcha blends are vibrant green, and they pair really well with heavy ingredients such as heavy creams, milk and sweeteners. So you don’t have to worry about its matcha flavors being lost to other ingredients in your baked goods.
