This matcha tea is produced by Koyama-en in Kyoto. Koyama-en is one of the most prestigious tea makers in Japan, they have been producing matcha tea since the 17th Century. We import this tea directly from Kyoto.
One of the finest matcha teas available outside of Japan. Eiju matcha has mild and slightly sweet flavours. This tea also has a more umami taste than Unkaku matcha. This tea is the top grade of ceremonial matcha tea that Marukyu Koyamaen produces. The great Tea Masters drink this tea for special occasions in Japan.
We recommend you prepare this matcha slightly thicker than other matcha teas, to best enjoy the exquisite flavour. This tea is ideal for a tea lover wanting to experience the best of matcha tea, or someone who is curious to try new flavours.

How to make Perfect Matcha:
We recommend you use not quite boiling water, around 80°C works well.
If you are using a chashaku (a Japanese bamboo teaspoon) we recommend 2 scoops, or 1 scoop from an ordinary teaspoon (approx. 1.5g)
- Add 2 scoops of matcha powder to your tea bowl or cup.
- Pour around 70ml of not quite boiling water into the tea bowl.
- Whisk the matcha with a chasen (Japanese bamboo whisk) or a small whisk, for about 15 seconds until smooth and slightly foamy.
- Relax and enjoy!
