Regular Matcha - 40g (1.4 oz)
Best Before Date : 16 / MAR / 2019
What is Best Before Date? : It tells us how long that food will keep its original quality. It doesn't have anything to do with a food's safety.
The date is 7 months after grinding Tencha to make matcha powder. This very short term comes from a real passion that our brand wants to offer fresh Matcha!
This organic matcha is perfect for those who want to start cooking with matcha. A little less delicate than our higher grade teas, this blend is bold and distinctive enough to stand out against other flavours when used in sweet or savoury dishes.
The quality of this matcha is good enough for drinking as Matcha tea. This Regular Matcha is an authentic Matcha, not a culinary or cooking grade matcha. Culinary or cooking grade matcha is either very low quality Matcha or just a powder of low grade Sencha. This is why it's price is cheep. Why don't you make your healthy Matcha latte with this high quality organic Matcha powder?
Produced by Marukyu-Koyamaen (Uji, Kyoto, JAPAN), one of the top green tea production companies in Japan.
Well respected amongst tea connoisseurs, Marukyu-Koyamaen pride themselves on the excellent quality of their products.
