Master Ceremonial Matcha
Enjoy our delightful Master Ceremonial Matcha which is our very best matcha, cultivated in the hills of Uji, in the Kyoto region of Japan. With just a dash of sweetness, this single origin matcha is grown using age-old traditions that date back over 800 years and we believe this to be the best possible matcha available.
Use this matcha for traditional matcha tea, Usucha and Koicha. Additionally, this ceremonial matcha is ideal blended into a matcha latte. Our quality matcha boasts a bright green colour that comes from the first harvest (known as “Ichibancha'', the first flush tea harvested from late April until early May). Ichibancha matcha has the very best reputation and is rated as top quality tea. Expect only the best for our ceremonial grade matcha tea which was enjoyed by Zen monks and Samurai warriors in times gone by.
