  • Green Tea with Matcha Tea Bags

    Our Green Tea with Matcha Tea Bags (Matcha-Iri-Tea Bags) are a concentrated sencha grown in Kagoshima Prefecture. A combination of loose leaf green tea and powdered sencha (not tea dust), this tea bag comes in the form of a triangular, nylon mesh bag, and will not affect the taste as traditional paper tea bags are known to do. This is an strong green tea, and is especially recommended for iced tea or for use with a larger sushi teacup. For iced tea, we recommend one tea bags per liter/quart. Simply add the tea bags in the water, and refrigerate.

  • Uji Matcha Manten

    • A Tsuen Tea!
    • Rare!

    Expensive? Yes, it is. However, if you are in search of the absolute best matcha available anywhere, online or off, your search is over! Until we started carrying Uji Matcha Manten back in the mid 2000's, this product had never been sold outside of Japan and it is still offered online exclusively by O-Cha.com. A few words about this item...

    The first thing you will notice about this matcha is its wonderful aroma. Extremely aromatic!

    The grower has an extremely small production, and is currently supplying only the local market with this grade, so the supply is extremely limited. O-Cha.com will have this item in stock as supplies are available, which will can be very hit and miss.

    Because of limited space and the age of the tea plants used for this item, the grower will never be able to increase his production.

    The typical customer in Japan who purchases this matcha are the tea ceremony instructors - because they know it to be the best.

    In the Uji area where this tea is grown, the grower is well known and has written a book on the art of growing Tencha (the tea leaves from which matcha is derived.) He has won numerous awards for his Tencha from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

    The taste of Manten is very distinctive and there is no competition for this grade - this is a connoisseur's class matcha. O-Cha.com is the first to carry this matcha outside of Japan. Koi-cha (matcha which is served thick) is sweeter, more milder tasting than regular usucha. Because twice the amount of matcha powder is used to make a thicker consistency, a milder, less bitter product is required, and this usually comes from plants that are at least 30 years old. While you can brew a thick matcha in the normal "thin" manner, the opposite is not true and there are really very few matcha green teas which one can make a true think style matcha. Manten, however, is one of those.

    If you wish to brew this in a thick manner, you may want to consider obtaining a tea whisk made especially for koicha

  • Matcha Tea Whisk

    • Handcrafted!

    Consisting of 65-72 prongs, this whisk is handmade in Nara, Japan and should not to be confused with imports from China that you will commonly encounter from most tea shops. There are over 120 different types of Nara tea whisks that vary according to the type of material used, shape and number of splines which will vary  according to the school of tea, the kind of matcha (thick or regular thin type) which will be served, and various other factors. We chose this particular chasen for general purpose matcha drinking. 

    About our bamboo tea whisk suppler (view detailed images) - Sabun Kubo Born 1940 and started making tea whisks in 1964. He is an artisan very keen on protecting traditional crafts.

    Differences between Japanese and Chinese tea whisks... The vast majority of tea whisks encountered on the market are copies made in China, not Japan. There is almost no market for matcha whisks within China itself, nearly all are exported abroad and surprisingly, even to Japan. Japanese craftsmen start the whisk making process using a sharp knife to chip the end of the bamboo, giving it a clean sharp break, whereas in China it  tends to be done with a file. Because of this, the tip of the whisk prongs of Japanese whisks are known to last longer. The bamboo used in Japanese whisks is superior and is dried for well over a year before use, no fungacides are used when producing Nara tea whisks. A real Japanese whisk will cost 2 or 3 times more than a Chinese whisk, naturally. It certainly is possible to make matcha with a Chinese made whisk but for long term reliability, we recommend that you invest in the real deal.

  • Uji Matcha Taiko-San

    • A Tsuen Tea!
    • Rare!

    We didn't think we would ever be able to offer another matcha comparable to the famous Manten we currently carry; yet it has come to pass! Like Manten, we realize Uji Matcha Taiko-San is an expensive matcha and we make no bones about it - this is about as an exclusive matcha as you will ever find. If you are in search of the absolute best matcha available anywhere, however, then your search is over! Until O-Cha.com obtained this gem from Japan's oldest teashop, this matcha had never been sold outside of Japan.

    A few words about this item...

    The farm where Taiko-San is grown is known as "Taikou-tsutsumi" and is located not too far from our supplier Tsuen tea's shop in Uji Japan. The area is both a tea farm as well as an archaeological site. The matcha is produced in this small field by the river beside an ancient levee, which is being studied for its construction methods. The grower, Mr. Fukui, farms several strains of tea in this plot and he adjusts the blend every year according to the plants condition to create the specific flavor. As with Manten, the plot is small and the yield is limited.

    This handpicked tea has an abundance of umami, which has been described by Tsuen as sweet with a hint of bitter and having a fresh green smell. The color is a rich and dark, very intense green froth. Compared with Manten, this matcha has a more masculine taste. Again, the grower has an extremely small production, and is currently supplying only the local market with this grade so the supply is extremely limited. O-Cha.com will have this item in stock as supplies are available, which may be very hit and miss. Because of limited space and the age of the tea plants used for this item the grower will never be able to increase his production. There is no competition for this grade - this is a connoisseur's class matcha. As with matcha Manten, O-Cha.com is the first to carry this matcha outside of Japan. Koicha (matcha which can be made thick) is sweeter, milder tasting than usucha (the normal matcha which is made in a thinner consistency). Because twice the amount of tea powder is used to make a thicker tea, a milder, less bitter product is required. While you can brew a thick matcha in the normal "thin" manner, the opposite is not true and there are really very few matcha green teas which one can make a true thick style matcha. Taiko-san, along with Manten, however, is one of those.

    If you wish to brew this in a thick manner, you may want to consider obtaining a tea whisk made especially for koicha

  • Cooking Matcha - From Uji

    After much consideration, O-Cha.com now offers a higher quality of cooking grade matcha than what is usually encountered on the market. Because we are based in Japan, we are also able to do so at a very reasonable price.  As will all of our products, it is freshly packaged and does not spend weeks in ocean transit or sit for months on a shelf in a warehouse. Unlike many of the cooking grade matcha you may see offered online which are actually grown in China and not Japan, our matcha originates from Uji Japan near Kyoto. Further, we offer this in a 300 gram package.

    Here’s a sad fact - Just because your matcha was produced by a Japanese company does not automatically mean it was actually grown in Japan. There are some Japanese companies who grow some of their matcha in China, import it into Japan, and then re-export it again.  This is particularly the case when it comes to cooking grades of matcha.

    Matcha comes in many quality levels but is basically separated into ceremonial grade and cooking grade matcha. While it’s true one could use any of our ceremonial grade matcha for cooking and as a food ingredient (and would in turn be especially magical), authentic, Japan-grown, ceremonial grade matcha is expensive and can make the price of a matcha based product prohibitively expensive. There is a reason why truly ceremonial grades of matcha are usually sold in 20 - 30 gram cans and not by the kilo. 

    To see what goes into product a high quality ceremonial grade of matcha, do check out this matcha leaf video

    We realize there is a real need for a matcha that while may not be suitable for the tea ceremony, is still needed to be of a sufficiently high enough quality to be used in lattes, smoothies, ice cream, baked goods, etc. Know that careful consideration went into our choice of cooking grade matcha because until we offered this product, we refused to sell anything less than ceremonial grade. We wanted real, authentic Japanese matcha.  Not powdered sencha, but matcha. Not grown in China, but grown in Japan. We wanted as high of quality as possible while still making the price reasonable. While this cooking grade matcha will not compete with the quality of our ceremonial grades of matcha, it's actually better than what many are offering online as supposed "ceremonial" matcha!

    As with all of our products, this product You cannot get this kind of fresh product from outside of Japan.

  • Organic Gaba Tea

    • Rare!
    • Unique!

    We are pleased to announce the introduction of a rather unique variety of green tea -  ORGANIC GABA tea (known as ギャバロン茶 in Japanese) or Gabaron Tea. As we are aware that many of our customer's main motivation for drinking green tea is for it's many purported health benefits, when we come across something unique and special health-wise, even though it may not be a traditional green tea we will always take a second look at it. The purported health benefits of this tea were too much to pass up.

    GABA is tea that was developed in Japan for it’s special purported heath benefits using a unique fermentation process which produces high levels of GABA  (gamma-Aminobutyric acid) in tea leaves. Through experimentation, Japanese scientists found that fermenting green tea in an oxygen-free, nitrogen-rich environment for six to ten hours produced a green tea with very large amounts of GABA.

    While green tea is (especially gyokuro and matcha) is known for it’s high levels of L-theanine, it also has other amino acids one of which being GABA.  Typically green tea has about 400mg/100g of GABA.  However, due to the unique fermentation process this special GABA tea has almost 50 times that amount!

    Before you decide to purchase this tea, understand that the one drawback to the high levels of GABA amino acid was it produced a rather unusual taste that is not typical of sencha you may be used to. It seems the process that produces high amounts of GABA affect the taste greatly and it’s not easy to produce a GABA tea that also tastes great. Fortunately our producer not only manages to do that, but also is able to produce a total organic product at the same time. But know up front that it doesn't taste like regular sencha.

    So what can you expect this tea to taste like?  If you are a regular green tea drinker, understand that your first encounter with GABA tea is going to be “different".  It has a rather unusual aroma. You may be hesitant to try it and your first smell of this tea will probably  give you a bit of a pause.  So with the understanding that although it may look like most sencha but that it's actually a different tea altogether, once brewed you will be pleasantly surprised upon drinking it.  It has a very nice nutty, buttery taste and is quite delicious. Our experience was that we were initially resistant to it based on the initial aroma, upon drinking it is quite  pleasing.   

    Since we here at O-Cha.com are not research scientists and cannot make claims of the health benefits of this tea, we provide it for you to try and enjoy and we will let you do your own research on the matter. We can say that if you are seeking more GABA in your diet, it would be hard to beat this natural product! With a bit of online research you will most likely easily find quite a few scientific studies of the purported health benefits of GABA-cha, a few of which are said to include: 

    • Reduction of blood pressure in experimental animals and humans.
    • Reduction of insomnia and stress.
    • Improved concentration
    • Fatigue relief
    • Muscle growth
    • Fat loss
    • Lower sensitivity to pain

    We look forward to hearing your reactions and experiences with this new and unique product, won't you try some today?

    Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package!
