It's replaced my morning cup of coffee

I love Smith's Tea matcha. It tastes smooth and earthy and I love whisking it to get that little bit of foam on top. Although it's not certified as ceremonial, it feels like I'm drinking something more wholesome every morning (rather than a cup of coffee) and I love that they work directly with the tea farm in Japan. Actually, having a matcha every morning has helped me replace need for coffee! The caffeine is there but it's a soothing, gentle addition to your day, rather than a sledge hammer of caffeine and anxiety. So if you're looking to switch a few days out with something else, I definitely suggest Smith Tea's matcha.

Great matcha!

I used to not like matcha, so I was hesitant to try this one, but it's amazing! It has such a smooth, almost sweet flavor and such a nice texture. I've also noticed I'm less tired during the day, but I don't feel anxious like I do when I drink coffee. Such high quality for a good price, I highly recommend!

Favorite Matcha

Best matcha!! It’s a bright green, wonderful green tea, never bitter. Dissolves very well in my homemade lattes. I recently tried a different brand when this was sold out and it just reconfirmed my love for this tea. This is my favorite matcha hands down. I drink it every day.

Matcha

Japanese Green Tea

To make Matcha, the tea plants are covered for up to three weeks before harvest, allowing only diffused light to reach the leaves. This promotes the development of chlorophyll and increases L-Theanine content, which brightens color, increases flavor and helps counterbalance the energizing effects of the caffeine. After plucking, the leaves are steamed, neutralizing the oxidizing enzyme and preserving their color. They are then put through a rolling and drying process, along with a special step through a machine that removes the viens and stems of each leaf. The tea that results from this process is called Tencha, which is then refrigerated until it is ready to be ground. In the final step, Tencha leaves are placed in small amounts on a granite grinder to make its signature fine powder. Granite is ideal for grinding, as it doesn’t produce much heat, which helps to maintain the rich color of the Matcha and its full flavor in the cup.

Gifu Prefecture

Gifu Prefecture is in the Chubu region, which is centrally located on the island of Honshu in Japan. It is just north of the most famous Matcha producing regions of Uji and Aichi. While not as famous, this area produces Matcha of equal quality, without all the hype. Harvest season is from April through June.
