If you are looking for drinking matcha we offer a great choice that caters to all budgets. With so much choice on offer it can be hard working out where to start. Tea is a lot like fine wine in that you get what you pay for. The difference between fine wines and teas though is that you do not need a refined pallet to be able to appreciate the finer qualities of the higher grades of tea. Even those new to tea drinking will detect the sweeter notes and the lower levels of astringency found in the higher grades of tea. If you are trying matcha for the first time we recommend that you start with the premium matcha and decide from there if matcha is for you or if you feel that you would benefit from the higher grades.
Having the right accessories is vital if you want to get the most out of your brew. Our hand-made Matcha Whisks or Chasens are handmade from bamboo and have been designed to ensure that you can whisk your tea to make the perfect laver. We also offer matcha scoops and matcha tea bowls.

We had great fun turning things green with matcha during the St. Patrick day celebrations. You would be surprised just what you can use it in, we had green spaghetti, green cup cakes, green chicken, green pizza, various kinds of green smoothies and then washed it all down with a green beer.

What is Matcha?
Matcha tea is ground, steamed shade grown tea leaves. The preparation for making matcha starts weeks before the tea harvest. The tea leaves are covered to prevent direct sunlight reaching them. The picture below shows one of our shaded tea gardens. This shading process turns the leaves darker and causes changes in the chemical composition of the leaves that results in the formation of amino acids and higher levels of caffeine than found in other teas. These leaves are then dried, de-veined, de-stemmed and ground into matcha.
