Our finest quality, wholly organic matcha powder comes from organic green tea farms from Uji, Kyoto. The tea grows on healthy soil packed with beneficial microbes, and is in rich in tannin, the naturally occurring antioxidant.

We work with a group of farmers in Uji, who have been dedicated to organic farming for decades. They are certified by various organizations:

  • JAS organic certification(HOAS)
  • EU organic certification
  • USDA National Organic Program
  • Canadian Organic Regime(COR)
  • U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") 

Here is Tomo san and his beautiful family! We visit them every time we go back to see our family in Kyoto!

Unlike common matcha, which is ground by high-powered machine, our ceremonial-grade matcha is stone-ground using traditional granite grinders – the process is ultra-slow but minimises the oxidization of the active components, thereby retaining the maximum nutritional benefits and giving the tea such a vibrant colour.

Healtholicious Japanese Organic Matcha

There are many different grades of matcha: we stock 2 grades, both of which are affordable, one is more suitable for drinking casually/baking, and the other is more suitable for drinking it alone. We differentiate them as CULINARY and CEREMONIAL PREMIUM grade.

What is the difference between CULINARY and CEREMONIAL PREMIUM grade?

Grades are determined by the quality of tea leaves, although both grades we stock are by far more premium than matcha produced in other countries. Cheap matcha grinds all kinds of usable green tea leaves in a commercial ball mill. High temperature destroys many potent chemicals and make it more oxidized. 

All of our matcha powder is stone-ground using traditional granite grinders – the process is ultra-slow but minimises the oxidization of the active components, thereby retaining the maximum nutritional benefits and giving the tea such a vibrant colour.

Culinary grade: matcha is made using the first few leaves collected over two harvests. The inclusion of more mature leaves makes the tea less mild, but the medicinal potency is just as high as the ceremonial premium quality.

Suitable for: casual drinking (matcha latte), baking, etc.

Ceremonial premium grade: matcha is made only using the shoot of the first harvest, which yields much milder, rounder taste.

Suitable for: making matcha alone

How to drink

Individual preference dictates how you might prefer to drink yours, but we recommend starting with a small dose - 1/4 teaspoon per cup. The powder will not completely dissolve so, if not drunk immediately, is likely to set.

Moderation is key: while it may be delicious, consuming large amounts of matcha may upset your stomach and is not recommended.

How to store

We recommend that you place the matcha in an air-tight container in a cool place to ensure that the powder does not get exposed to oxygen. This will help ensure it retains its freshness and taste.

High quality matcha

I have this matcha almost every morning in lieu of coffee now. It has a nice earthy fragrance to it and a lovely vibrant green color. Not bitter at all (to me). Agree with Mustafa A. that matcha doesn't give me the jitters like coffee did!

Magical drink: Matcha!

I was an addict to coffee but with side effects. I switched to Matcha and I am super happy! So focused and no jittery feeling that coffee used to cause
