Our top grade of organic matcha is made from the first springtime harvest of tencha, savored for its umami sweetness, creamy taste and enlivening energy. Prepare Teahouse Matcha in the traditional, ceremonial manner called Cha No Yu using a tea bowl and a bamboo tea whisk.

The traditional cultivation of tencha requires shading the tea garden for 3-4 weeks prior to harvest. This elevates chlorophyll and enhances L-theanine and other stimulating amino acids responsible for matcha's unique bounty of energy.
Tencha is made from tea strains specifically cultivated to be:
-low in tannin
-high in caffeine
-rich in flavor and umami.

I had some matcha green tea (from powder) at Tully's today and had to phone them later to get the brand name. It was so delicious! Looked all over Seattle to buy it retail but had no luck. Just bought some online.

For the price this is one if the best matcha green teas if tasted. I've had "ceremonial matcha" from from other sources at almost double the price and the taste didn't match the price. I had to add honey just to hide the bitterness. With this matcha from Rishi, I found it very easy to wisk into a nice froth and the taste was light and surprisingly sweet, no added sweetener was needed. The color is a vibrant green and smells as good as it tastes. I prepared it into a usucha (thin tea) I like a more watered down matcha but I'm sure if it's your "cup of tea" you could prepare a koicha matcha (thick tea) with this matcha from Rishi. Next I'll have to bite the bullet and order one of their higher grade matcha tea's.
