Competition organic Matcha
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.

What Customers say
Love the matcha!
The best matcha I have ever had
The flavor is not chalky or muddy but very umami and has a mild sweet taste. The powder is very fine and I can’t describe how beautiful the green color is. Thank you
Gorgeous matcha - the umami lingers on and the aroma is uplifting. Wonderful on its own or you can pair with a small snack (in my case Meiji rich matcha biscuit complements it really well).
Best overall matcha, amazing value, definitely will order more.
