If you are looking for the most ethereal, surreally delicious matcha in Japan's domestic market, you have found it. The six matcha below come directly from Japanese growers who are obsessed with quality in every stage of planting, pruning, feeding, harvesting, processing, and final delivery to us. All seven drink more like fine wine than tea, and are extraordinary hot, especially served in small quantities in gorgeous bowls.
Differences between the six primarily reflect rarity and terroir. They become sweeter, have more umami, and are more refined with the higher numbers.
We've unearthed a dreamy and rare matcha that sets new records for extreme quality. If you ever want to know what pure umami tastes like, look no further. SHOP
Artisanal matcha doesn't get much better than this. The first thing you notice is the creamy body and smooth mouthfeel that resembles a perfectly pulled espresso. SHOP
It’s as if fresh cream, young grass, baby vegetables, and cacao were blended together to create an ambrosia unlike any other. This is the taste we’d like on our last breath. SHOP
Similar body and texture to Breakaway Blend 99, color is wildly vibrant. Mouth entry is wondrous and seamless. The tea is sweet, with no trace of bitterness (this is rare in the matcha world). Clean and harmonious. SHOP
A feisty, gorgeous matcha that's ready to slap you with its attitude. Racy. Fantastic color, heady aromas, intense "matcha" taste (think strong green tea ice cream), faint twinges of bitterness (which gives it its sass). SHOP
We've finally found it! For four years, we hunted all over Japan to find an organic matcha that merits inclusion into our hyperpremium lineup, and here it is, at long last. SHOP
