Artful Living - The Best Matcha Brands to Try in 2021

By Kate Nelson for Artful Living 

Anyone who knows me knows I’m a matcha fiend. What’s matcha, you ask? It’s a finely ground powder made from specially grown and processed green tea leaves that’s been consumed in East Asia for centuries. Devotees love the antioxidant- and chlorophyll-packed tea for its purported health benefits, like increased focus and energy, immunity and heart health support, and more. And there’s no better time to adopt a healthy habit than the New Year — or National Hot Tea Month (going on right now).

But I have a confession to make: Before the coronavirus outbreak, I didn’t know how to make a matcha latte. I relied on Minneapolis spots like Penny’s and Fairgrounds to make my beloved beverage for me. So when many of us adopted a work-from-home lifestyle, I realized I needed to learn how to make this everyday indulgence for myself. Along the way, I tried countless kinds of matcha to discover my favorites. Here are the 18 best matcha brands to try in 2021. 


The Tea Spot - Matcha

The Tea Spot  

This brand out of Boulder, Colorado, is spreading wellness through tea, inspired by founder Maria Uspenski’s recovery from cancer. As such, the company donates 10% of all profits in-kind to cancer fighters and community wellness efforts. The Tea Spot’s matcha collection includes ceremonial-grade powder, a Keep Fit loose leaf blend, and the like.
