Culinary Grade Matcha Tea Powder 

Our culinary grade matcha tea powder (also known as cooking grade matcha, kitchen grade matcha, ingredient grade matcha or cafe grade matcha) is from the Nishio region of Japan.  Matcha tea powder has been produced from this area for the last 800 years. Leaves that are picked for culinary grade matcha are lower on the tea plant than leaves used for ceremonial grade matcha.  Our culinary grade matcha will have a stronger flavor than that of ceremonial grade allowing it to shine through whatever matcha recipe you make. This matcha powder is perfect for baking, making matcha lattes, blending into a matcha smoothie, or mixing into baked sweets.

Culinary grade matcha has slightly different nutritional properties, with slightly lower L-theanine and other nutrients, all though the difference is not too big.  You can be sure that whatever you pair this culinary grade of matcha with, health benefits will be added.

Our culinary grade of matcha comes from the gold standard of matcha production.  Our matcha is shade-grown and stone ground giving you authenticity and great taste.  Our matcha is not stored long because we buy in small orders to ensure the freshest matcha to our customers.  All of our matcha comes with a 18 month expiration date located on the back of the bag or tin.

First matcha purchase!

So far I have made tea cookies, raw nut/fruit balls, smoothies, and plain matcha with cashew milk and it's all good to me! Don't have much to compare it to but a chain coffee shop latte experience years ago. I learned the amazing benefits that make the cost of matcha well worth the price.

I have yet to receive my order

This review is not about the quality of the set, but based on my customer service experience. Placed my order on April 13th, got shipping notification on April 14th, and the last shipping notification I got was April 16th saying USPS was awaiting the item in Buena Vista, CA. Emailed customer service April 22nd and received a response the same day from a member of your team saying he would inform me once he receives info from usps. I also contact usps and they stated they have no information regarding the package. As of today, April 27th, I have yet to receive any information about my order. This was meant as a gift that will now be late. Was very excited to try the set and the matcha, but this experience makes me doubt if I will order from Kenko again, unfortunately. Would appreciate this problem being solved as soon as possible. Thank you.
