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 Raspberry comes from Uji, Japan, and is a first harvest, spring tea blended with natural tart raspberry flavor. A Samidori cultivar, it is considered a high grade for everyday consumption.

blended with matcha tea & natural raspberry flavor
Like all our teas, this delicate Raspberry Matcha is sugar free, gluten free, dairy free and FULL of delicious flavors with ZERO calories. Our superb spring 2020 harvest was freshly powdered into a fine matcha and scented with natural raspberry flavor to give you a taste of summer all year long. Oh, did we mention it’s vegan-delicious? Can’t resist a little more sweetening? Add healthful honey or agave to taste. Push the flavor envelope and whisk it with cold milk instead of water and pour over ice. Or, use an immersion blender to add additional froth.
