Matcha Green Tea Powder - Japanese Ceremonial Grade
40 grams in Miron Violet Glass
What is Matcha Green Tea Powder?
Matcha refers to powdered green tea leaves which have been carefully prepared to provide a potent superfood that is much more nutritionally dense than regular green tea. What makes our matcha truly special is that we source it directly from Japan’s Uji province, in area that is famed for producing some of the highest quality organic green tea leaves in the world. The whole matcha leaves are slowly stone-ground into a smooth vivid green powder that’s full of goodness and ready to be enjoyed.
What Are the Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea?
Early uses of matcha green tea date back to the Tang Dynasty in China when it was steamed and made into tea bricks. Matcha was also traditionally used by Japanese monks in Zen monasteries to aid mental alertness during long periods of meditation. Nowadays, science has revealed that it’s the presence of the ‘feel good’ amino acid L-Theanine in matcha green tea that helps to stimulate alpha brain waves, aid concentration, and produce feelings of calm alertness.
A study published in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition revealed that the catechins present in green tea reduced LDL cholesterol levels. A 2011 Cochrane Review Study also suggested that regular consumption of green tea helped to lower blood pressure. Matcha gets its beautiful green color from a high concentration of chlorophyll, and it is also loaded with fiber, antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.
What Does Ceremonial-Grade Mean?
Matcha is graded into several categories based on factors such as its growing location and conditions, as well as the quality of the leaves. Common types of graded powders include cooking, kitchen, and culinary-grades which are designed to be used as an ingredient and added to foods and drinks. Ceremonial-grade is a label reserved for the highest quality tea powders which are used in special Japanese tea ceremonies. It’s distinct because it’s made from stone-ground young green tea leaves, has a brilliant spring green color, and a delicate naturally sweet and smooth taste.
What is Miron Glass?
Our matcha green tea is packaged in Miron violet glass, which is a high-quality container that shields the powder from the harmful effects of UV light in order to maintain its freshness. The beautiful glass container is reusable and recyclable, which helps to make this green powder green-friendly too.
How Do I Use Matcha Green Tea?
Just add a quarter to half a teaspoon of the powder to a bowl or cup and pour over hot (never boiling) water. Use a mini kitchen whisk or traditional bamboo implement called a chasen to make a delicious frothy and silky smooth drink with a delicate taste. Tip: if you don’t have a whisk to hand, you can also froth it up in your blender. You can add a dash of coconut milk and refrigerate the liquid to make an iced green tea latte which is perfect for sipping on in the Summer. Matcha’s other culinary uses are only limited to your imagination, as this versatile powder can also be added to ice creams, smoothies, juices, elixirs, cookies, energy balls, sauces, and other delectable treats.

This is my first time trying matcha. The color is a beautiful emerald green and the froth it forms is almost creamy. It's the way it should be from all I've read. The color is electric just as it is in the photos. This is an excellent company, the product arrived before the tracking information was listed! FAST shipping. I can't wait to try other products.
