Details

  • Perfect for making traditional hot tea ("Usu-cha")
  • Excellent for daily drinking
  • A balanced, sweet flavor for tea lovers

As Aiya’s most popular grade of Matcha, this Ceremonial Grade offers a beautiful jade green color and a mild, natural sweetness. The slight Matcha astringency (from tea catechins) perfectly balances the sweetness (from L-theanine amino acids), making it ideal for Usu-cha, or thin style tea. We call it our “ceremonial” grade because the quality is high enough for formal Japanese tea ceremonies.

All of Aiya’s Matcha is produced in the Nisho region of Aichi prefecture, Japan, where the finest Matcha has been grown for over 800 years.

Each 100g (3.5 oz) bag is good for approximately 50 servings.

Been drinking it for years I used to work at a tea bar in downtown Vancouver that carried Aiya products years ago and I have been hooked ever since. When the tea bar closed down, I started ordering the ceremonial matcha online. I order cperiodically every 6 months. The bag lasts me that long when kept in the fridge!

I love whisking it up in my matcha bowl and drinking it traditionally, or add a small spoonful to a pot of sencha for an extra kick.

A great product that makes me nostalgic for my days working as a tea slinger.

Lovely tea This matcha tea has a smooth, subtle flavor with a hint of sweetness. No bitterness at all. Personally I prefer stronger taste so I use more per serving than instructed. The prepared tea has a vibrant green color. I have tried a variety of brands of matcha tea and this is amongst my favorite. I do wish they had bigger packages but will just order two packs at a time. I like the radiation test report and would like to see flouride testing in the future if possible. Great tea, if you like matcha, you will certainly like this one. For me, I love the taste but also using this for health purposes (reducing fibroid tumors). An added benefit is that it offers a calm alertness that seems to brighten my day and makes work a little less stressful.

This is how Matcha should taste! I have tried nearly every brand of matcha sold in the USA and found them bitter, flat or downright undrinkable. Until I found Aiya. Brilliant green (suggesting its high antioxident content), not bitter, and with the sweetness of chlorophyll on a bright spring morning, this tea whisks up to a thick, silky foam with tiny bubbles. It lifts my spirits, and has replaced coffee as my morning brew. Don't let the price stop you. Yes, you can get matcha for less, but this is one time you truly get what you pay for. One taste and you'll never go back. If I could tell my fellow Americans how Matcha should taste, I'd tell them "It should taste like Aiya Matcha!"
