This affordable Matcha Versatile is suitable both for drinking and for culinary use. This is blended with Ichibancha (the first tea of the year) and high grade Nibancha, the second tea harvest of the year, and is grown in the shade for 20 to 30 days before harvest by the "Jikagise" method. Though the taste is somewhat bitter and the color is less bright, this has the mellow taste that is characteristic of Matcha.
Of course, this is suitable for drinking. This Matcha has a mellow taste, though a little bitter. You can fully ingest the healthy beneficial constituents like Catechin as with other higher grade Matcha.
This is also suitable for culinary use, such as smoothies, lattes, sweets, and so on. We highly recommend this for foods which do not require baking. The bright color and mellow taste of Matcha are usually weakened by heating during high-temperature baking.
If you know anyone who hesitates to try Matcha due to the price or another reason, would you kindly share this by clicking the email or Facebook button below the Cart button on this page? They will certainly be pleased with the value and price.
In order to keep Matcha in good condition, the package is zip lock (re-sealable) style. When you close the zip lock package once opened, please remove the air from the package as much as possible, in order to preserve the freshness of the Matcha. If you have the metal container from our 40g / 1.41oz Matcha, or airtight container from our tea ware ("Matcha Bowls / Accessories") category you also can use it to preserve Matcha. The small pull-top can and the airtight container are superior and useful for storing Matcha.
