Japanese Ceremonial Matcha

Japanese Ceremonial Matcha Loose Green Tea


Regular price $27.49
($2.20 per cup)

A top-grade organic matcha loose leaf tea, sourced from Wakohen garden, in Kagoshima Prefecture.

Crafted from just the tender first flush of the Saemidori cultivar.

Made from precious Tencha - shade-grown green tea, the leaf is de-veined and de-stemmed and ground using traditional ceramic stones to a fine powder. This meticulous crafting results in a tea of great depth and intensity.

This is ceremonial grade matcha for whisking; it can also be enjoyed as an iced tea or added to cold-pressed juice and smoothies. We recommend whisking to a smooth paste with a little cold water first and then diluting for an iced tea or to add to your juice. Cold extraction takes about 1 hour, use 4-5g per litre of cold water.

Wakohen Garden

He checks the tea every day to assess the amount of bugs that eat the pests that eat the leaf, against the amounts of pests that eat the leaves.

If the bugs that eat the pest out number the pests, then he just lets the ecosystem do its thing.

When the number of pests that eat the leaves is higher he uses the Hurricane King to clear the leaf.

The result is natural, sustainable and delicious tea.
