Organic Ceremonial Matcha is a powerful antioxidant source, calm sustained energy and mental alertness.
Matcha is unrivalled in its antioxidant power boasting approximately 137 times that of regular green tea, in addition to key amino acids, vitamins, flavonoids and essential minerals.
L-theanine is an amino acid which stimulates brain waves to create feelings of both calm and alertness sustained over long periods of time, without the shakes and jitters that comes with coffee.
Burning calories has never been easier with Matcha. It has been shown to increase thermogenesis from 8-10% to 35-43% of daily energy expenditure, due to its high catechin polyphenol content.
Matcha is especially high in epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a type of catechin that has been shown to have powerful disease-fighting properties.
Matcha has been shown to reduce levels of total and “bad” LDL cholesterol, as well as triglycerides. It may also help prevent the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, another factor that may protect against heart disease.
Matcha's antioxidants are key in providing focus and concentration and has even been shown to boost mood, which can be useful during long periods of work.
Our ceremonial grade matcha brews an exquisite, smooth buttery tea broth boasting rich and malty roasted aromas, and that quintessential 'umami' flavour. Prepare to be launched into a transcendent state of nirvana, thanks to this rich ambrosia packed full of L-theanine and immunity-boosting antioxidants.
Hand-picked, shade-grown and stone-ground - we painstakingly tried and tested hundreds of samples of Japanese matcha to bring you the finest quality originating from the Nishio prefecture, heralded as a top matcha-producing region of Japan.
To prepare the traditional way, mix one heaped teaspoon into a small amount of hot water (ideal temperature is 80°C). Whisk or froth, depending on your tool of choice, until bubbly and creamy. Top up with tepid water and enjoy.
Store in a cool dry place. Keep out of reach of young children.

Although matcha originated in China, Japanese producers are famous for continuing the centuries old, traditional, hands-on approach to cultivating the world’s best, high grade Japanese matcha, unlike a lot of Chinese and Korean matcha which is processed mechanically.
Plenty of our customers see immediate results in terms of improved focus and weight management, but we recommend that you drink ceremonial matcha for a full month before you see results.
Any way you like! Our matcha can be drunk the traditional way, by first whisking in hot water and then topping off with cool water. If you are feeling adventurous, you can use our matcha in lattes and desserts.
Matcha tea contains a unique, potent class of antioxidant known as catechins, which aren’t found in other foods. In particular, the catechin EGCg (epigallocatechin gallate) provides potent disease-fighting properties and counteracting the effects of free radicals from the likes of pollution, UV rays, radiation, and chemicals.
Delicious as a healthy pick me up drink with warm almond milk.
Having heard all the benefits of Matcha powder, I was keen to try it but put off by the comments that it was and acquired taste or even unpleasant. A friend recommended the Pretty Smart Food Company's Matcha and I was pleasantly surprised. It has a light, almost sweet flavour (for a green tea) and isn't at all bitter.
