Product Code: matcha3
The darkest color in our Matcha, responsible for bitterness.
Also good for cooking.
If you like slightly sweeter, Grade AA is recommended.
|Ingredients||Green Tea Leaves|
|Country of origin||Uji-shi,Kyoto Prefecture,Japan|
Matcha is grown in the shade just like gyokuro, but after the leaves are steamed, rather than being kneaded, the dried “tencha” is ground into a powder on a grindstone. Besides being used in ritual tea ceremonies, the powder is also a common ingredient in sweets. Matcha is mainly produced in Uji, Kyoto. Matcha has everything you could want in a tea with its combination of sweetness, savoriness, and bitterness. Since the leaves are consumed as well, it is also a good source of vitamin C, fiber, and other nutrients found in tea leaves.
For the frequently-asked questions about the grade A~S, each grade is mainly defined by “Production area x Tea farmer x Crop quality in the season”.
Tea fairs are held in Japan and the tea grades such as aroma, a liquid color degree of a leaf color, and flavor in each season are decided as comprehensive evaluation by the most professional among professionals. Thus, please understand that the grade A~S can be decided in order from the best for each season. There is no grading system by light-steam, normal-steam, and deep-steam as often mentioned. Instead, normal-steam primarily created by Souen Nagatani is original as green tea. Because a tea processed for deep-steamed tea was not a good quality tea due to a strong taste of bitterness and astringency, a deep-steamed production process was developed. As indicated by the Japanese word “WabiSabi”, the pronounced flavor of green tea (even a plain-flavor appearance like a local cuisine of Kyoto) will be preferred in Uji as a main tea growing center.
As described above, since a tea quality does not depend on production process (e.g. Level of steam), it is not always true that a tea would be good if paying for higher value so determining a tea quality can definitely be difficult without a distinguishing insight for tea contents. It will be the best if our insight with the Uji history can assist you to absolutely select and enjoy a delicious tea.

This is a lovely tasting Matcha, I can definitely taste the difference from the cheaper Matcha I have tried before. I drink Matcha almost everyday at work (instead of coffee) and it is both refreshing and makes my brain work again in the afternoon. =) I haven’t had time to try it in baking yet, but I plan to. Thank you so much Wabi-Sabi for your lovely tea!
I love Matcha Facial Masks! It’s amazing! I’ve sought a good matcha a few years, but I couldn’t find my matcha to make facial masks. It’s doing good things for my insides! Thank you, wabisabi!
I've been using this in my morning smoothies for a couple weeks now and it gives you a healthy kick of energy without the crash. Amazing. I have yet to make a green matcha latte.
I’m hooked on matcha. I have tried to find my matcha at store or online in the past. But all of them I found was BAD. The color and taste were awful. Even though I spend a lot of money for it. The other day I’ve heard of this online shop from my friend who visited Japan. He received a business card of this online shop from this company. I looked it up on the Internet, but it was a little expensive for me! I was thinking whether to buy it for a week. I decided to buy it after a week. I was worried about the taste, though. After placing an order, I received it within a week! It was very speedy service. The color is very green, and the taste is awesome! This is the best matcha I’ve ever had! It was a little expensive, but definitely worth it! I’m very glad to find this website. I have to thank him.
I really like this matcha. I drink matcha everyday, so this is a good addition to my collection. It is 3 ounce for $32. A little bit expensive, but it’s worth to try it. I’ve bought matcha A in this time. I think there are 3 grades for matcha, and I would like to try to taste next level. It’s very easy to make something desserts with it. I highly recommend this matcha.
