This is finest quality, O-Koicha-grade Japanese matcha (ceremonial). Handpicked in Nishio by venerable Japanese tea masters. It’s perfect for tea ceremonies and very special occasions. You can always spot proper Japanese matcha: the green should be luminous and vibrant, the texture silky and smooth, and the liquor should ping and zip around the palate. Japanese matcha is sweet and savoury, with a hefty whomp of umami, and very smooth on the finish. Matcha tea powder, especially high quality powder like this, contains up to 15 times more nutrients than loose leaf green tea. It’s packed with antioxidants like EGCg, plus fibre, chlorophyll and vitamin C.
