Matcha, the focal point of the Japanese Tea Ceremony, is a fine powder made by grinding green tea leaves. Only the finest, young, shade-grown gyokuro tea leaves are used to create Matcha. The leaves are plucked and laid out flat to dry. Veins are removed and the leaves, now called tencha, are carefully ground in granite mills until they become the precious powder. Easy preparation is achieved by placing 1 teaspoon of Matcha per cup (or to taste) in a cup, adding a few drops of hot water (160-180F) and stirring with a spoon until a paste forms. Add the rest of the water and stir. Our Matcha is a Samidori cultivar from Uji, Kyoto. It is a high-grade Spring (first harvest) tea. The 2oz tin will make about 24 8-ounce servings. Steep at 170°F for 2 minutes

      I really like Adagio’s matcha. They are of excellent grade. I do much prefer the flavored ones though.

      I was never a matcha fan. Ever. Until I stumbled across this gem. Now I can love and appreciate the flavors of a GOOD matcha! Definitely my go-to!

      This is my go-to matcha. I love to combine a good amount of sugar and matcha, add a little water, then fill the cup with milk, froth it, and voila!- a 30 second matcha latte. This is definitely the best matcha for that because it’s not too bitter.
