The traditional powdered ceremonial Japanese green tea, matcha has recently gained popularity in the west as a "super-food". As opposed to other teas where an infusion of the leaf is drunk, with matcha, the whole leaf is consumed. This, of course, means more antioxidants and more caffeine.
Our Matcha Wako is enjoyed in thin tea preparation and is the second highest of the ceremonial grades (usucha, thin grade). It arrives vibrantly green and freshly sealed in airtight 20 gram tins which yield 10-12 servings.
