Organic matcha is rare in Japan in general, and in Kyushu in particular. Selected by the highly skilled team of Koga Cha Gyo in Yame, the leaves of this competition-grade organic matcha come from Kagoshima.

Hand-picked during the first harvest of the year, this ceremonial matcha is a true gem that will win the hearts of the most demanding matcha lovers. Its deep emerald color will impress you, along with its sweetness, perfumed notes and savory umami.

With its light touch of astringency and creamy aftertaste, this matcha offers you a refined experience. 

Food pairing recommendations

You may enjoy this tea by itself or pair it with a wagashi, a piece of chocolate, or a dark chocolate truffle. This matcha may also be paired with light seafood dishes or with a semi-soft cheese like smoked gouda or havarti, or sifted onto a salad with spring greens and fresh fruit, like strawberries.

Excellent Organic Matcha!

I only drink organic matcha! This matcha is delicious to drink straight or with your favorite type of milk. I mostly drink it straight! I love the taste as it is. I tried many different brands and grades of matcha and this one is superior to all of them!

My favorite matcha

I have been testing dozens of Matchas and none every matched the rich taste of MIYUKI. The strong Umami is well balanced by slight bitter note. I keep it in the freezer which prolongs its shelf life to months without losing any flavour

My favourite matcha ever!!!

I’ve gone through about 50 of the top brands of Matcha ranging from Amazon to all the top sites online and nothing comes close to this matcha! It’s also the cheapest considering the quality that you get! Thank you!!!!!!

$ to get to Canada but well worth it!

I was introduced to this matcha from a friend. Never heard of it, was always buying a popular brand on Amazon. I finally took the chance and ordered this and wow, just delicious and smooth. I can only order when there is a discount or sale because I buy the large format to hit a free shipping - its quite the purchase to get to Canada! But I will continue to do so because it is so wonderful. I wish the large format bag however was improved. it is VERY hard once you get to the bottom to scoop out the matcha, it is quite the mess :(
