This tea is cultivated and processed under conditions that comply with the requirements for JAS organic certification, which is equivalent to the EU and USDA organic certification. Organically grown tea leaves are cultivated entirely through natural processes until harvested, so the size of the harvest and flavor of the tea vary from year to year. The difficulty of cultivating organic tea leaves of stable quality and quantity in challenging conditions makes them very rare. We think you will truly enjoy our Organic Matcha, which possesses the natural, strong flavor and fragrance that Ippodo demands.

Matcha is grown in shaded fields in order to reduce astringency and increase sweet umami flavor in the tea leaves. Starting around the end of April, the entire matcha tea field is gradually covered, until it is almost completely shaded by picking time. Knowing the right time to shade the field is vital, so cultivating matcha requires years of experience and wisdom. The tea leaves are picked and quickly processed, but do not become matcha until they are carefully ground into a fine powder in a stone mill.

The matcha that makes it onto store shelves after this lengthy process is a valued and cherished item. Savor it during special teatimes. A natural choice for pairing with Japanese sweets, matcha is also a nice fit with dairy products and goes wonderfully with Western confections. Matcha has a light taste that is easy to drink, making it a great after-meal beverage. It also has a distinct and rich fragrance that is relaxing.
