Matcha is a traditional Japanese tea made from stone ground tencha leaves. Tencha leaves have a very unique growing process which includes protecting them from light during the last weeks of before harvesting. This preserves the smooth, rich flavour of the leaves, and encourages maximum formation of antioxidants, amino acids, and chlorophyll. High-grade, traditional matcha - such as withinUs TruOrganic™ Matcha - is made from tencha leaves that are harvested by hand, dried, and stone ground into a vibrant, emerald-green powder. Our matcha is an artisanal blend of the two highest grades of matcha from Japan, and is smooth and delicious.
