What is ceremonial grade Matcha? Posted on 17 Jun 13:25 , 2 comments

In Japan where Matcha was invented, there is no such grade. Historically Matcha was enjoyed in tea ceremonies. So in Japan we have only two types of Matcha. Matcha (authentic matcha) and culinary grade Matcha (very low grade Matcha or powder of Sencha). Depending on green tea cultivar, how young leaves to use, etc, there are so many grades and depending on the grade, the price for the matcha is determined by its producer. So in Japan we don't use the name "ceremonial grade" for high grade matcha. Higher grade matcha has higher price than lower grade one. 

So why we see so many matcha brands selling ceremonial grade matcha?

The answer is very simple. Because there are so many people outside Japan don't know about matcha well still. If you see "ceremonial grade", you might think that it is a high grade matcha and you would buy it. So this is a matcha seller's trick to sell low grade matcha with a high price tag.

Why is it difficult to find good matcha?

Matcha is becoming very popular worldwide. This means that so many people are trying to make money from matcha business. Matcha sellers can make big profits from selling low grade matcha as a ceremonial grade matcha. And the partial of the profit goes to bloggers who run affiliate programs. The bloggers promote the low grade matcha irresponsibly. What you can find on search engines is that if you see matcha on many bloggers post, the matcha seller offer big commission to the bloggers. 

Thanks for reading!

 

 

 


5 of Important Things You should Know Before Buying Matcha Green Tea Posted on 01 May 22:31 , 1 comment

High Quality Organic Matcha from Kyoto, Japan - Grace & Green

Matcha Green Tea is becoming popular worldwide. You can find so many matcha brands out there but you might have to think like "Is this brand really offer high quality matcha"  This is a very good question to avoid buying low quality matcha with very high price.

As one of Matcha Lovers, I'd like to say 5 of important things you should know before buying matcha.

1. Many of Matcha brands outside Japan are Matcha second sellers.

Their brands do not exist in Japan. They buy matcha from one of matcha production companies (matcha brands) in Japan. So the question is " Is your matcha brand really famous or popular in Japan?" 

2. Many of bloggers do not know about good quality matcha.

Many bloggers review matcha brands for money, not for people who are eager to find good quality matcha. There are some decent bloggers though.

3. Product Reviews are not always reliable.

There are some apps to get good reviews instead of offering discounts or money back.

4. Buying from a huge e-commerce company can be easy but that's ALL.

They take huge commission fee. So it is difficult to offer high quality matcha with the reasonable prices. And Matcha should be kept in a refrigerator all the time.

5. Matcha made in Japan is only the authentic matcha.

You might have found some matcha made in other countries. Matcha can not be made in other counties because good quality matcha can be made only from some Japanese green tea cultivars.

If you are looking for truly high quality organic matcha, try ours and compare with others. Read our products reviews from Matcha Lovers!
