This savory, jade-green matcha is made from highly-flavorful Kamairi (pan-roasted) tea leaves, stone-ground to silky perfection.

Matcha's health benefits far exceed any other green tea type. When you drink matcha, you ingest the whole tea leaf in powder form, not just the brewed water.

Make a traditional cup of matcha, or a delicious cup of matcha latte. You can also make "matcha zhio" — a traditional garnishing for your vegetable dishes, seafood, chicken, steaks, and eggs, or as a rub to season poultry, fish, and meats. See below for the how-to.

About Kamairi Variety

To make Kamairi, fresh tea leaves are parched at high heat for ten minutes, after which they are rolled and dried in a four-step process. The result is a smooth tea with a sophisticated, rich flavor.

Producing Kamari is labor-intensive and requires skill. Kamairi teas are rare even in Japan as they account for about 2% of all Japanese tea production.

How to Make Matcha Latte

cup of matcha latte

Ready In: 10 Minutes
Recipe Makes: 1 cup (240 ml or 8 oz)

  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder (about 1 - 1.5 grams)
  • 1 cup of unsweetened, plain soy milk (or milk if you prefer dairy)
  • Sugar or honey as needed
  • Sift the matcha powder into a mug cup using a fine-mesh tea strainer.
  • Add sugar to taste. If you wish to use honey instead, do it after adding the soy milk (or milk) in the steps below.
  • Warm up the soy milk
  • Add a small portion of warm soy milk to the mug. Using a tea whisk (bamboo whisk), whisk the mixture in a quick “M” or “W” shaped motion till matcha dissolves entirely, and all the lumps are gone. If you don’t have a tea whisk, use a small spatula or a fork and whisk/stir briskly.
  • Add the remaining soy milk and mix well. If you wish to add honey instead of sugar, do it after you mix in all the milk.

How to Make Matcha-Zhio (Matcha Salt)

  • Mix well in a small bowl
  • Use as needed and store the rest in a shaker

    Great taste but a bit pricey

    Posted by Jordan on 19th Mar 2023

    So I’ve been on this matcha train for a while now and I gotta say, this one’s a winner in terms of taste and texture. If they could bring the price down a bit, it’d be 5 stars from me, no doubt.

    OMG, this matcha is everything! I’ve tried a bunch but nothing comes close to this one. The color, the texture, it’s all just perfect. It tastes amazing and it’s organic too, which is a total win-win. I’m hooked and I can’t start my day without it. If you haven’t tried it yet, you’re missing out big time!

    I LOVE TEA... I LOVE TEA...Tea is healing, tea can wake you up, calm you down and heal you. This is the brightest green, most beautiful creamy Matcha I have ever tried. Just buy some and compare it to any other you have purchased and see the difference! To fully enjoy its flavor, I recommend you learn how the Matcha needs to be prepared. It is worth doing a little research on how to make a cup of Matcha tea properly. Youtube it! You can make it hot or cold! Learn how to make it the beautiful traditional Japanese way with a sifter and a bamboo whisk, and Matcha bowl, and I guarantee you will feel just the process of making this special tea will be something you look forward to. It is a beautiful way to serenely start your busy day or a calm way to end your day. WAWAZA THANK YOU for my favorite tea!
