Tasting Notes:

At The Tea Spot, we're committed to bringing you the finest quality teas from around the world, and our Japanese Ceremonial Grade-A Matcha green tea powder is no exception. Matcha tea is a unique type of Japanese green tea that is made by grinding shade-grown green tea leaves into a fine powder. When you drink matcha, you're consuming the whole tea leaf instead of steeping it, making the health benefits more pronounced.

Our Matcha is sourced from Japanese tea farms in Yame, Japan, where the green tea leaves are carefully selected from the first harvest of the season to ensure the highest quality. The leaves are then ground into a silky smooth powder using traditional stone-mill methods that have been perfected over many centuries. This A-Grade Matcha is the highest grade of ceremonial matcha available and is characterized by its intense emerald green color, which breathes freshness into every sip.

Matcha has a unique flavor profile that is distinct from other types of tea. When whisked with hot water, our matcha produces a frothy and smooth beverage with a naturally sweet umami flavor. You'll also notice a fresh and rich aroma that's reminiscent of freshly cut grass, as well as a vibrant green color that's visually striking.

The flavor of matcha is often described as complex, with layers of subtle flavor notes that are revealed with each sip. In addition to its natural sweetness and umami flavor, you may notice hints of vegetal notes, nuttiness, and even a slight astringency. This complex flavor profile is one of the reasons why matcha has become so popular among tea connoisseurs.

Matcha is a great coffee replacement that won't make you feel jittery, as you might from a cup of joe. It's a popular choice for those looking for sustained energy and calm focus, because the combination of caffeine and L-theanine in matcha provides a calm, focused energy that lasts longer than coffee without the crash.

To prepare your matcha for drinking, we recommend using a bamboo whisk and Matcha bowl for the traditional Japanese tea ceremony experience. Simply add a teaspoon of matcha to your Matcha bowl, and then add a small amount of hot water (about 2 ounces) that's just below boiling point. Use the bamboo whisk to vigorously whisk the matcha and hot water in a "W" motion until the mixture becomes frothy and smooth. Add more water (about 6 ounces) to the bowl and continue whisking until everything is well combined.

Matcha lattes have also become a popular way of drinking matcha, and our Japanese Ceremonial Grade-A Matcha is the perfect indulgence for tea lovers looking to elevate their tea-drinking experience. Simply whisk your matcha with a small amount of hot water to form a smooth paste, add your favorite milk such as almond milk, oat milk, coconut milk, or any other milk alternative, sweetener of your choice, and continue whisking until everything is well combined. Shop now and discover the taste of pure, authentic Japanese matcha straight from Japan!

NOTE: Upon first use, when the inner lid is popped open a puff of matcha occurs — proof of the air-tight seal. Use the outer lid to maintain maximum freshness between use.

Amazing

This is the best ceremonial matcha out there....trust me. I've tried them all - from influencers' brands to other tea companies... and nothing compares to this. It's bright green, super easy to blend, and overall just soooo tasty and yummy. It's grassy, but naturally sweet too. Definitely get this one, doesn't get any better than this.

Best Ceremonial Matcha!

I've tried quite a few ceremonial matchas, and none of them come close to the flavor of this one. Many of the others I've tried have been bitter and require some sort of sweetener to be palatable, but this one is smooth and sweet with a beautiful umami flavor without any interference from extra ingredients. I won't buy any others after trying this one!

Best tasting Japanese Matcha I have had

The title says it all: this truly is the best matcha I have had. I honestly wasn't expecting much as most tea houses and distributors love touting the deliciousness of their "high-grade" or "ceremonial grade" matcha. They all end up just tasting good enough. I was genuinely surprised by how tasty this matcha was though. I honestly can't say for sure if I have ever had true ceremonial matcha from Japan before (I have had so much matcha over the years), and I don't trust what the labels or sellers say. However, based on the descriptions, this matcha is how I would imagine true ceremonial matcha would taste. It is so creamy, smooth and froths very easily. The astringent notes are miniscule. My wife and I enjoy drinking this matcha just as it is which I can't say about other matcha. Even when made as a latte, this stuff is supremely delicious. I think this is truly the first time I have ever been "wowed" by a top quality tea. The price is very much worth it in my opinion. I actually wish I could buy it in higher quantity.
