Matcha refers to the way in which the Green Tea is processed. The leaves are grinded using stone mortars in the traditional processing way known as “Matcha”. This ancient technique does not use any heat which could damage the living nutrients contained in Green Tea.

It has a sweet and full-bodied aftertaste, far from astringent and bitter like other green teas.
It has a beautifully bright-coloured and outstandingly excellent flavour.
Most Matcha available in Australia comes from China, but ours comes from Japan where it is cultivated by local farmers using the same traditional methods they have used for centuries. It is certified organic and guaranteed to be the best quality Green Tea available in Australia.
