Jade Leaf Matcha Green Tea Powder
Authentic Japanese Origin
Our tea leaves are sourced primarily from the Uji region (Kyoto Prefecture), which sits on the southeast border of the city of Kyoto, and is the oldest and most premiere matcha growing region in Japan. We also work with farmers in the lush Kyushu region in southern Japan, which enjoys an ideal growing climate and is quickly becoming a hub for organic farming. Final blending and grinding of the tencha green tea leaves into matcha remains strictly with the masters in Uji.
100% USDA Organic
True, authentic Japanese matcha that is certified organic is still in extremely scarce supply (less than 1% of Japanese tea farms are certified!) — and we have been carefully forming partnerships with the preeminent farms to be able to supply the best quality organic matcha here in the U.S. at fair prices.
Passionate Farmers & Traditional Techniques
Our partner farms are run by families stretching back for generations. They take pride in their craft, employing techniques that have been honed over centuries. The tea leaves used for our matcha grades are:
- Shade grown for 3-4 weeks prior to harvest to boost nutrient content
- Selectively picked, with stems and veins removed to improve texture and taste
- Stone ground into an ultrafine powder, keeping delicate nutrients intact
- Carefully packed into air tight, high grade packaging to prevent oxidation from air and UV light
