What’s different about matcha from Matcha Blend Tea?
In one word; Quality. Matcha Blend Tea does not source tea from China. The main reason for this is the lack of quality. Tea plants absorb a high rate of pollutants from the air, so even if the plants are raised as organic, lead and other heavy metals are sure to be present. If you do decide to buy a Chinese green tea ask the retailer about the levels of lead and other heavy metals content. Studies have shown that they can be above safe levels, even though they may be certified as organic.

Our Matcha Super Premium is the highest quality ceremonial Matcha produced in the Uji, Kyoto region of Japan, the traditional home of the world’s finest green teas. Each leaf for this special matcha is selected and carefully picked by our farmers’ skilled hands. Even in Japan, tea leaves of this quality are difficult to find, so we are very pleased to be able to offer you our Matcha Super Premium.

Matcha Super Premium is very smooth and mellow, with a deep taste and excellent noble aroma. There is no bitterness and it’s very suitable for koicha (thick and strong matcha, the special way in tea ceremony) or usucha (thin and weak matcha, the standard way). Made from 100% powdered green tea of ‘Samidori’ and ‘Asahi’ breeds, and only from the shincha harvest (the first tea of the year).

Shaded for 20 to 30 days before harvest by the traditional way of ‘Tana’, which requires skilful technique and great care. Once picked the leaves are dried then ground with a traditional stone mortar and pestle, called a Hikiusu, ensuring you are provided with a rich, vivid green powder. Our Matcha Super Premium is a Matcha Tea of rare quality and purity, even in Kyoto, Japan.
