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.

Green tea, like all teas, is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. The leaves are picked, withered, and then heated to lock in the freshness, vibrant taste, and green color. Because of this very short processing time, green tea has a higher concentration of chlorophyll, polyphenols, and antioxidants than other tea types. For this reason, green tea has earned a reputation over the past 5,000 years for its health benefits.
Polyphenols are compounds that have been linked to a host of health benefits such as bolstering immune systems and reducing the formation of certain cancers and cardiovascular diseases. Polyphenols are found primarily in plants and notably in very high concentrations in green tea. These potent compounds are best known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may help us live our healthiest lives possible.
Green tea is also rich in L-Theanine, an amino acid associated with improved mood and focus, as well as reducing stress and anxiety-like symptoms.
