What is Matcha?

  • Matcha, that pretty green powder, is a tea that comes from Japan. 
  • A finely ground green tea, matcha is traditionally made into a drink by whisking it in hot water. 
  • Matcha usually costs more than other types of tea since there’s a lot more work involved to make it.

What to Look for When Buying Matcha

  • Bright green color
    The brighter the green, the better the quality of matcha. This also means that it’s more expensive.
  • Made in Japan
    Real matcha comes from Japan. The super cheap matcha (almost brown in color) are usually from outside Japan and are basically knock-offs.
  • Ceremonial or Culinary Grade
    Ceremonial and culinary grades are only given to matcha sold outside Japan and it’s purely done for marketing purposes in the US. Get the brightest green matcha within the $20-$30 range for lattes and recipes.

Matcha Drink Tips

  • Sifting matcha using a mesh strainer helps to prevent clumps.
  • For a pretty green color, go with a higher quality (and more expensive) matcha. 
  • Matcha is traditionally served with something sweet so adding a sweetener will enhance the flavor of your drink.
