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.
Our organic matcha tea is produced by an organic farm in Uji, Kyoto. As matcha tea is only harvested once per year, and not many farms use organic practices, this tea can be difficult to get a hold of. We suggest you stock up on this matcha while it’s still on our shelves!
All the matcha we sell is packed in the tin immediately after production, ensuring the freshest and highest quality flavour. We also don’t sell any matcha that was produced more than 6 months ago, as we know how superior the taste of fresh, bright green matcha tea is.
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 small whisk, for about 15 seconds until smooth and slightly foamy.
- Relax and enjoy!
