FAQ

What is matcha?
Matcha is 100% pure ground green tea leaves. Nothing else. 
What does matcha taste like?
Matcha tastes fresh and green – similar to green tea, but more earthy and robust. The flavour strikes an appealing balance between subtly sweet and mildly bitter.
Does matcha contain caffeine?
Yes, all tea contains caffeine naturally. One serve of matcha (2g) has roughly 70 mg of caffeine compared to 100 – 200 mg of caffeine in a single cup of coffee. Matcha also contains the amino acid L-theanine, famous for its calming and relaxing effects. For this reason, matcha is considered both a relaxant and a stimulant. And, unlike coffee, matcha shouldn’t leave you with the jitters you can get from coffee.
Is your matcha organic?
We offer a range of both conventional and organic matcha.
Shouldn't all matcha be organic?
Great question. We covered this question in one of our blog articles. Read it here.

Do I really need a whisk (chasen) to make matcha?
For a traditional preparation we recommend a bamboo whisk. It enhances the whole experience and also produces more frothy goodness. If you’re looking for a more modern approach, why not try one of our electric matcha whisks.
Why is matcha more expensive than other tea?
Matcha is serious business. The process from farm to cup requires significant expertise, care and knowledge, involving traditional cultivation processes which date back more than a century. The leaves are shade grown, hand-picked, steamed, de-stemmed and slowly ground into an ultra-fine powder at a rate of only 30 grams per hour. Additionally, most of the matcha produced in Japan actually stays in Japan, with less than 10% exported, which makes demand higher than some other teas.
How should I store my matcha?
Matcha should be stored in an air-tight container in a cool, dark place — like your refrigerator.
