Don’t know matcha? You’re gonna love it. Energizing, detoxifying and dreamy as a latte, matcha is made from finely ground green tea leaves – so with every sip, you’re consuming all those full-leaf benefits. It’s surprisingly fast and easy to make. And from Matcha Boosted loose leaf to sophisticated Ceremonial, there’s a matcha for literally everyone.

Get the scoop on the benefits of matcha
Ever tried a green tea latte? Then you’re already a matcha fan. This superstar green tea powder is popular for lots of reasons – think fresh flavour, energizing kick and bigtime benefits for your mind, body and mood. Because you’re ingesting the entire leaf, you get every last nutrient and antioxidant green tea has to offer. And matcha is super versatile. We especially love it on its own, as a green tea latte, added to cakes and smoothies and sipped as a fresh and fruity iced matcha. Whether you like yours sweet or neat, matcha is one trendy superfood everyone can get behind.
The story of matcha
Matcha is just now becoming popular in North America, but it’s actually ancient – Buddhist monks first brought it to Japan thousands of years ago. Green tea powder was traditionally prepared and sipped as part of zen tea ceremonies to aid in meditation. Turns out those monks were onto something – scientists have since discovered that green tea leaves contain large quantities of L-Theanine, a rare amino acid that promotes feelings of calm and mental alertness. Even if you’re not into the whole traditional tea ceremony, we love the satisfying ritual of making our own matcha and savouring every sip – it’s like a delicious exercise in mindfulness.
The best matchas ever
All of our matcha is sourced from Nishio, Japan – the region known for producing the world’s finest matcha for the past 800 years. It’s a labour of love that starts with shading tea plants for up to three weeks before plucking, which increases chlorophyll and gives the tea leaves a vibrant green colour. The leaves are then steamed, dried, deveined and carefully stone-ground to a fine powder – ready to be whisked into hot water and enjoyed.
And because we believe there’s a matcha for everyone, we offer a range of grades and flavours, from sweet Vanilla Matcha to fruity Peach Matcha to ultra-premium Ceremonial Matcha, the exquisitely creamy version used in traditional tea ceremonies. Our flavoured matchas are made with a sweet base of cane sugar or coconut nectar – perfect for green tea lattes with a little burst of flavour. Prefer to keep things simple? Try classic Matcha Matsu or go luxe with Grand Cru Matcha or Organic Ceremonial Matcha.
