Tea Story

Our organic ceremonial matcha green tea imparts a mellow and deep flavour - which stems from the high concentration of healthy amino acids - with subtle hints of sweetness. This matcha powder is meticulously produced by talented tea experts from the Ise Bay area of the Mie Prefecture region in Japan. Farmers in this region have been producing high quality green tea for over 800 years. Our Ise Bay colleagues make use of ancient knowledge, as well as state-of-the-art technology, to create the most sublime green teas.

This premium organic matcha tea makes the perfect healthy drink and can be enjoyed in the traditional way or used as a natural flavour enhancer in smoothies and juices as part of a healthy breakfast.

Our organic matcha tea is made from shade-grown tea leaves from Camellia Sinensis bushes. Only the finest handpicked tea buds are used. To prevent direct sunlight, the tea bushes are covered in the last 20 days before harvest. This process is known as ‘shading’. Shading slows down growth, increases the intensity of the natural green pigment and causes an escalation in the production of healthy amino acids. Our matcha tea is stone ground to a fine powder through the use of specially designed granite stone mills. It can take up to one hour to grind 30 grams of matcha.

Matcha Health Benefits: Researchers have found that the concentration of antioxidants available in matcha tea is 10 times greater than the amount of EGCG available in other fine green teas. EGCG can help to prevent cellular and genetic damage by neutralizing unstable molecules - also known as ‘free radicals’. Matcha is also said to boost metabolism and help reduce cholesterol levels when consumed regularly.

Brewing Guidance: See the matcha page for quick and easy brewing methods.

Matcha can be prepared to different liquid consistencies. For thin tea, use approximately 1.75g of matcha powder with 75ml hot water. For thick tea, use 3.75g of matcha powder with 40ml of hot water. To prepare your matcha tea, place a small amount of sieved matcha powder into your matcha bowl using a bamboo spatula. Add 70℃ hot water. Whisk the mixture using a bamboo whisk until the liquid has a uniform consistency. Finally, when enough foam has formed on the surface, beat at medium speed to produce finer bubbles.

Other Uses

Matcha is very popular for use in cooking - mainly to make cakes, sweets and ice creams. Our ceremonial matcha powder is perfect for making delicious desserts and for infusing into spicy coconut curries.

Matcha tea is also known to help ward of colds and infections, and is particularly great to implement in a musician's diet, aiding the voice. Read more on how Matcha can benefit the voice in 360 Artist Development's blog here.

This was my first cup of matcha and it was exceptional!
The quality is fantastic. I'm an excessive tea drinker so wanted to introduce something with great health benefits on a daily basis. This matcha is a little pricey for daily consumption so I use now Mighty Matcha - also ceremonial grade, but what a difference in quality. It doesn't compete so as they say, you pay for quality and this matcha is indeed the finest quality!

Great quality and keeps me alert throughout the day!
Friday, 13 November 2020  |  Reema

This is my go to for organic Matcha. The quality and taste is just superb. I only need it once a day as part of my healthy lifestyle and I feel it sure does make a difference, especially as I do not get enough sleep. I take a teaspoon in a cold mixture of coconut water and almond milk.. sometimes with a touch of cinnamon.. a delicious and healthy treat for me!
