Our 100% GRADE A Premium Usacha Matcha Green Tea Powder is imported from Shizuoka, Japan. Matcha is the tea used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies.

Matcha is a high-quality green tea powder with a fine texture. Its tea leaves are grown only in Japan and are shielded from sunlight several weeks before harvest. This causes the leaves to darken and produce higher levels of amino acids. After the best tea leaves are picked, they are dried out and ground manually to a fine powder on a stone mill to protect the nutrients in the leaves.

Matcha tea powder was first cultivated by Japanese Zen priests, who developed rituals incorporating matcha. During Japanese tea ceremonies, participants prepare matcha green tea in a series of choreographed steps to achieve beauty, tranquility, and enlightenment. Matcha is the only tea used in these ceremonies, which can range from formal to social.

Matcha For Your Health

Many people drink green tea for its health benefits or to lose weight, but matcha does much more than this. Matcha green tea powder contains more antioxidants than virtually any other food, including acai berries and pomegranates. It also contains high levels of L-theanine, an amino acid which lowers stress levels but preserves alertness. The L-theanine counteracts the caffeine in the tea, making matcha ideal for creating a mental state of relaxed alertness.

Since matcha leaves are grown in the shade and protected from sunlight, matcha boasts the richest source of chlorophyll compared to all other teas. Chlorophyll is a powerful cleansing and detoxifying agent that helps rid the body of heavy metals and other toxins. It is also responsible for the powder's signature verdant color.

Green tea is a uniquely rich source of catechins, a group of antioxidants that protect cells from disruption by free radicals. The oxidative damage caused to normal cells by free radicals has been linked to chronic conditions like cancer, heart disease, and degenerative diseases related to aging. The most prominent catechin found in matcha tea is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), an even more potent form of antioxidant than Vitamin C or E. Matcha powder contains a more highly concentrated form of EGCG than its loose leaf tea counterpart.

Taste and Uses

Due to its high levels of amino acids, matcha green tea has a deep and complex taste, initially bitter but with a sweet aftertaste. Aside from tea, matcha green tea powder can also be used for making green tea yogurt, green tea ice cream, or any other desserts or treats that call for green tea.

To make matcha green tea, simply blend 0.5-1 teaspoon of 100% matcha powder and a small amount of hot water with a spoon to make a smooth paste. Add more water and sweetener as desired. Or, using a traditional bamboo whisk, put 0.5-1 teaspoon of 100% matcha powder in a large cup or a drinking bowl and add a small amount of hot water. Whisk in a quick, light zig-zag motion until a layer of green froth appears on the surface. Add more water if desired. 100% matcha powder can be used for thin or thick matcha. The ideal water temperature for 100% matcha green tea is 150-180 degrees Fahrenheit.

“My order was shipped the next day and received 3 days after I put the order in. THAT WAS FAST!! This is the first time I've ever received an e-mail that said "Hip hip hooray! According to the galactic
delivery powers that be (aka UPS), your order has been delivered. Yippee!"

WHAT A GREAT MESSAGE!!!! I was definitely amused and impressed. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. THANKS”

“You guys are amazing! After reading all the positive reviews I finally bought some almond flour and I will never go back to buying it from my local grocery store. Your almond flour is ten times better than what I've been buying. I just made some matcha green tea macarons using the matcha green tea powder that I purchased from you guys as well and it came out perfect. I didn't even have to whip out my food processor to grind up the chunky bits of almond flour, because there were no chunky bits! Again, you guys are amazing! I will definitely come back for more. And thank you for the gift of chia seeds. I have been eating it every morning with my bowl of honey granola and milk. Love the texture. Will probably be my next buy. Keep up the awesome work, NUT Family!”
