Ceremonial Matcha

+

Finely ground Japanese green tea for ceremonial use

Silky and smooth, our Ceremonial Matcha boasts a subtle sweetness with notes of banana and rosemary. Made of 100% pure tea leaf, its blend of deep flavors and earthy tones makes it worthy of the Japanese tea ceremony. Ideal for whisking hot or shaking cold.

Contents: Ceremonial matcha (green tea powder)

Origin: Wazuka, Kyoto, Japan

Tasting Notes: Umami, banana, rosemary, rich

During thirteenth-century Japan, Buddhist monks, who had long been drinking matcha to remain alert during meditation, introduced the tea to samurai warriors as a pre-battle beverage for increased energy and endurance.

The sophistication and solemnity of the ritualistic Japanese tea ceremony aligned perfectly with the noble way of life of the Samurai and provided yet another method to discipline the mind and body – an essential component to becoming a successful warrior.

Today, matcha continues to be revered worldwide for its abilities to enhance one’s focus and countless health-promoting nutrients.

Our premium-grade Ceremonial Matcha is made by stone-grounding the tender leaves of shaded tencha from the first harvest of the year. A delicate sweetness and subtle notes of banana and rosemary balance well with its blend of deep flavors and earthy tones.


After falling in love with tea while working as a part time farmhand in college, our partner grower made the decision to devote his time to mastering the art of tea farming. Since then, he has spent more than 15 years becoming one of the most respected growers in the Kyoto region. He, along with his co-founder, now manage four acres of previously abandoned tea fields that are now productive and contribute to the local economy.

Though the foundation of our partner grower’s farm is tea production, it also functions as an agricultural social venture that aims to: share quality Japanese tea with the world, contribute to the local and global community through tea, and generate interest in agriculture locally through education.

Tea is packaged in Japan in a heat-sealed foil bag and then stored in a recyclable design tin.
