Artisan Grade A stronger umami (^) flavor, grassy and pleasantly herbal. This is a great daily cup of matcha. Mixes well with almond, coconut, cow or hemp milk to make a delightful latte. This grade is also the best bang for the buck balancing flavor against cost. A great starter blend for those just beginning their Zen Matcha journey, and a daily staple for the Zen Matcha aficionado.
Premium Grade Aptly named. A wonderful blend of the finest topmost leaves from our grower in Nishio, Aichi Prefecture. For those who like a bit more umami, this blend works best mixed with water (no hotter than 140*). The softer, more subtle flavors make for a sweet latte without adding any sweeteners.
Shogun Grade Our highest and best grade. An organic from Kyoto. Subtle and sweet, with just the right balance of umami(^) . Mix with water (no hotter than 140°F) to awaken the flavor, delight the palate, and warm the soul.
