Traditionally in Japanese culture, Monks drank matcha before meditation to increase their mental focus, and Samurais drank it before going into battle because of its energising properties. So, it would seem that they knew of the advantages of this potent green tea powder long before us.
For us, matcha is a strictly Japanese tea, synonymous with an ancient tea culture that dates back to the 12th century. Green tea powder brands that cost significantly less are probably not true Japanese matcha.
Our matcha is sourced directly from organic tea growers in Uji in Kyoto. The tea produced in this region has a deeper taste and aroma and a more noble colour than the tea produced in any other region of Japan.
