Matcha & Powdered Green Tea

matcha

Matcha is a form of powdered, shade-grown green tea. Not to be confused with powdered sencha, matcha comes in large variety of quality grades - from lower, food grade "matcha" (often used in matcha lattes and smoothies) all the way up to ultra high quality ceremonial grade matcha - the kind we sell here at O-Cha.com.

 

Why you want to buy Japan based O-Cha.com matcha versus matcha from a source in your own country...

Due to transit time and storage requirements, you cannot purchase matcha as fresh from a company outside of Japan as you can from one inside of Japan.  We only keep a small supply on hand and ship directly to the customer within a very short period of time. When we need more, it is freshly packaged and sent to us within 24 hours. Our matcha does not spend weeks in transit and months in storage.

You cannot purchase matcha of the same quality and value from a non-Japan based firm as you can from a Japan based company. We sell and ship our matcha directly from Japan to the consumer for a very nominal shipping fee.

The matcha we sell is superior to non-Japan based matcha firms. We have matcha that is rare to find even in Japan.

It is also not uncommon to encounter lower grades of matcha at online auction sites or in online stores which have not been grown in Japan at all which are actually produced in China and imported by large corporations into Japan before being re-exported again!

All matcha and powdered green tea products sold by O-Cha.com are authentically grown and processed in Japan, we only deal with the finest, higher grade products - period. Several of our matcha products are of such high quality that it is virtually impossible to find them anywhere else either online or even in Japan.  Take a look at what we have to offer below!

    • 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.

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

    • 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.

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

    From Uji. Although it may look similar to matcha, this product is sencha and has different taste characteristics - it's a bit more astringent. However, because Uji Organic Powdered Sencha is grown under full sun it is poplular with those seeking maximum antioxidant levels from their tea. From the first harvest, the leaves used to produce this green tea are grown under full sun and are then ground into a fine, talcum-like. 100% certified JAS/JONA organic. No teapot needed with this item! Mix 1/4 teaspoon (included with package) in hot water and you will have an immediate supply of the healthy ingredients in green tea. Many add this to their shake mixes. Try it today!
