Your FAQs, Answered
For Tencha Matcha
How you intend to use the Matcha will dictate what type of Matcha to choose. If you enjoy your Matcha traditional style, consumed on it's own, prepared true to origin, then Ceremonial Matcha suits you best. If you prefer your matcha with steamed oat milk, or if you are baking with it, adding it to a smoothie, or a cocktail, then you can choose either Ceremonial or Culinary Matcha.
Matcha is grown in the shade to protect the tea plant from the sun, allowing for an increase in caffeine concentration and the exclusion of amino acids.
Yes, Matcha tea is one of the healthiest teas to drink. It is high in caffeine and an excellent substitute to drip coffee or espresso. However, if you are caffeine sensitive, we do not recommend consuming this tea everyday.
Tencha Matcha can be consumed as ‘thick tea’ (koicha [濃茶]), where only a small amount of water is added to the tea to make it liquid. ‘Thin tea’ (usucha [薄茶]) – better known as a 'frothy tea' - has a higher water to tea ratio. Especially in the case of koicha, the palate quality is of utmost importance with the tender, sweet leaves deemed to be the highest quality (most palatable).
