Ceremonial Grade Matcha
The Organic Ceremonial Grade Matcha is perfect for sipping as a tea, making frozen lattes, adding to your salad or adding to your Greek Yogurt!
The primary difference with matcha compared to other green teas is that it is shade-grown. This process increases the amount of cell-food chlorophyll in it, which gives it its bright-green color.
Matcha is produced by grinding the green tea leaves into a powder leaving you with a concentrated version of green tea. Our high-quality matcha contains a specific set of organic compounds known as catechins. Among antioxidants, catechins are the most potent and beneficial. Scientists have found that Matcha Green Tea contains over 100 times more of the EGCg catechin than any other tea on the market.
Amongst its many health benefits, Matcha...

- Boosts metabolism and burns calories

One glass of matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content.
There are many ways to prepare matcha, from latte form to smoothies and in food.
Here is the most traditional way, as described here:
- Bring water to a boil in a kettle, then let it sit for at least 5 minutes or until it is between the temperatures 165°F and 180°F. You don’t want to use boiling water to make matcha.
- Measure out ½ teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of matcha, and sift the tea with a fine-mesh strainer to get rid of any clumps. You can sift the matcha into a round mug or a small bowl.
- Add about ½ cup of hot water to the matcha and whisk away. The final product should be clump-free, bubbly, and creamy on top.
