100% Matcha Green Tea Powder
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.

“Even with the Thanksgiving holiday, I received my order within two days after purchase. I ordered the 100% Matcha Green Tea as well as the Green Tea Powder Mix. I have only tried the powdered mix and it is delicious! I highly recommend Nuts.com. Not only are they fun people (I can only assume) with a fun website, but they are also very reliable. I will definitely be back with more orders, thank you Nuts.com!”

“I love Nuts.com, everything I've ordered from them has been really high quality stuff and I'm always happy with my orders. I usually get the 100% organic matcha powder and a few spoonfuls of it in some water makes me feel like I could wrestle down a bear. I just tasted their supreme roasted cashews and the taste hit me like a ton of bricks, good lord sweet Jesus there's flavors in there I've never experienced in other cashews, they're absolutely sublime.
The prices are fair, the shipping is extremely fast, the site is easy to use and the products are amazing. They even give you generous samples of their other products with every order. I can't recommend Nuts.com enough.”

“This matcha powder is fantastic! It's better quality than I've ever acquired locally (even at the tea shop), and is beautiful, vibrantly green. I mix the matcha powder 2:3 with powdered sugar, mix it in a cup of almond milk, and shake it up for bubble tea. My husband loves not having to go to Starbucks for great tea frappuccinos, too.”
