Choose a tea based on flavor profile. Kama is our most premium selection made from the first picking of the season. The taste is grassy, vegetal and has no astringency. Morning Matcha has a similar profile with a distinct bitter note at the end. Sugar Destroyer is the most earthy and pungent.

Sift 1 tsp matcha tea into a tea bowl. Add 3 oz hot, not boiling, water (about 180 degrees). Whisk vigorously in a zigzag motion until a light foam covers the tea. Matcha is ready to drink. Adjust proportions to taste.
For the same reason bakers sift flour before using. The static electricity in the air encourages powders (be it flour, baking powder, cocoa, etc) to stick together and form clumps. The same is true with matcha green tea powder. Sifting matcha smoothes it out and lets it blend better into your drink or cooking recipe.
Water quality and temperature are important in making good tasting matcha. Begin with cool spring or filtered water and bring it to just under a boil (about 180 degrees). Boiling water will “scorch” the delicate matcha leaves and impart a bitter taste.
We sourced this matcha from the environmentally friendly hillside region of Nishio. In the late 1800’s a Buddhist priest introduced the varietal and production techniques of the Uji region used in matcha production. Soon Nishio became a formidable producer of matcha tea.
