Matcha green tea powder is a special type of green tea produced with exceptional care and tradition. All our matcha is hand-picked and stone-ground to produce an extraordinarily smooth, high-quality matcha powder. Freshly ground for us right before being packed in air-tight tins and shipped from Japan, our 100g tins of Matcha Wakatake are packed with nutrients, antioxidants, Matcha Wakatake is a vibrantly green tea powder with that characteristically sweet and fresh grassy taste associated with premium matcha powder.
Traditionally prepared hot in a bowl with a chasen (bamboo matcha whisk), matcha has become most recently popular prepared in other forms (including our locally famous iced mango matchas!). If you are looking for matcha to enhance smoothies, baking, or cocktails; as a matcha latte; or to shake up as an iced matcha at home, we recommend using the Matcha Wakatake. We recommend our Matcha Wako and Matcha Unkaku ceremonial grade matcha powders for traditional preparation.
Our producer of Matcha Wakatake, Marukyu-Koyamaen, first began producing tea in the Genroku period (1688-1704) in Ogura, Uji. Over the centuries, Marukyu-Koyamaen has stayed true to their tradition and their mission of growing and producing exceptionally high-quality Ujicha (Japanese green tea). Still family-owned, Marukyu-Koyamaen remains highly esteemed and now ranks among the foremost producers of fine teas in Japan, winning many national prizes.
Matcha Wakatake comes in a 100 gram tin, or about 50 servings. Refill this tin for 10% off in store.
Matcha green teas have a special brewing method - see our Matcha Brewing Guide for brewing instructions for hot and cold matcha teas.
