Ceremonial Grade Matcha Tea Powder

Our ceremonial grade matcha tea powder is made of the youngest of Japanese tea leaves, finely selected, from the very first harvest of the year in the Nishio Region of Japan.  The stems and the veins are removed giving it a smooth texture to the touch.  Ceremonial grade matcha is vibrant green in colour.  It has a smooth and delicate flavour, almost sweet tasting.  This natural sweetness makes it ideal for Japanese tea ceremonies and people who want to experience a more traditional style of matcha drink.  

Ceremonial grade matcha is different from culinary grade matcha in the harvesting phase and this affects the taste and quality.  We use finely selected leaves from high on the tea plant during the first harvest of the year, as compared to culinary matcha which is made from leaves lower on the stem. Ceremonial matcha is generally prepared just with water, with a bamboo whisk and bowl, compared to culinary matcha which is added to lattes and recipes. Ceremonial matcha also has slightly different nutritional properties, with slightly higher levels of L theanine and some nutrients, although this difference isn't too big. 

Our matcha comes from the Nishio Region in Japan, the gold standard in 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.

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.
