Quality matcha is aromatic and offers various taste profiles from bright and grassy to deep, rich and creamy with umami notes. With a high grade matcha, it will generally exhibit less astringency and you will also notice subtle flavor undertones.

We source our matcha direct from family farms in Kyoto, Yame and Kagoshima in Japan.

We recommend using the Bonsai Cha Chasen for a perfect cup every time. Simply add 1/2 tsp. of your favourite Bonsai Cha matcha, blend and serve. It is recommended to enjoy ceremonial matcha on its own, but you can drink your matcha any way you like it!

Matcha has about 30 mg of caffeine per 1/2 tsp. However, matcha provides clean and focused energy without the jitters you typically experience with coffee.

All of the establishments we work with ensure that regular testing of soil, air and water are conducted to meet the stipulated requirements.

Matcha is very delicate and should be stored in a cool, dry place away from light and heat. We recommend refrigerating matcha to preserve quality and freshness and to prevent oxidation.

With proper storage, matcha is best consumed after 1-3 months after opening. (But you'll love it so much you'll drink it all before then!)
