Matcha, the focal point of the Japanese Tea Ceremony, is a fine powder made by grinding green tea leaves. Only the finest, young, shade-grown gyokuro tea leaves are used to create matcha. The leaves are plucked and laid out flat to dry. Veins are removed and the leaves, now called tencha, are carefully ground in granite mills until they become the precious powder. 

Our matcha comes from Uji, Kyoto, Japan, and is a first harvest, spring tea. A Samidori cultivar, it is considered a high grade for everyday consumption.

Serve hot, any time of day.

Ingredients

Matcha

How to Brew?

Suggested ratio of tea preparation is one teaspoon of leaves per 8 ounces of water. However, light and voluminous teas will taste best with twice the leaves. Experiment and enjoy!

Use boiling water when preparing black, dark oolong and voluminous teas, and cooler (180F) water when steeping green, light oolong and white teas.

Do not steep your teas longer than recommended or it will turn bitter. The rule of thumb is 5 minutes for most teas, and only 3 minutes for green and light oolong.

Tasting Notes

Our Smarty Pants tea is authentic to matcha's process, leading to a powerfully unique aroma. The strong grassy notes are true to this historic tea, with strong notes of lemon refreshing you before you even make the tea. 

Smooth and silky, our tea brings a vibrant grassy flavor with sweet, nutty notes and a contrast of light bitterness at the back of your palate, all brought together with matcha's signature umami taste and a refreshing squeeze of lemon. 

Pairings

Our tea's smoothness is bolstered with a nice helping of milk and its flavors are lifted by a sweet spoon of honey. The light flavors of cucumber and refreshing mints also pair wonderfully. 

 Matcha has historically been paired with savory foods with flavors like mushrooms and soy sauce, but its unique taste also works with tart and sweet fruits. Being a powder also makes it easy to add our tea to whatever fruit smoothie you want to make.
