We import some of the finest Matcha from the Aichi prefecture in Nishio Japan. The tea leaf is shade grown, hand picked, devained, and slowly milled on granite grinding stones. It takes one hour to mill 30-40 grams of Matcha powder. The granite milling preserves its rich emerald green color, intense flavor and nutritional value. It has the highest antioxidant content that you can get from the tea leaf; Matcha contains higher antioxidant levels on a per gram basis than any other known natural fruits or vegetables. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to add a high antioxidant “live food” source to your diet in: Smoothies, Lattes, Cocktails, Pastries, or the Japanese traditional Matcha preparation using the ceremonial handmade clay Matcha Bowl and hand froth with our hand made Bamboo Wisk. A little bit goes a long way. Use 2 grams (1/2 tsp) per 8oz cup.
