Sipped for centuries in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, ceremonial grade matcha is the highest quality green tea powder available. It is made from the youngest shade grown tea leaves, with the stems and veins entirely removed. The leaves are stone-ground, which makes the matcha suitable for a thick-style tea. It is the perfect choice to use in the Japanese tea ceremony.
This premium grade matcha is vibrant green in color with a smooth, refreshing, slightly sweet and mildly rich flavor, with a silky texture. It makes a delicious tea!
