Japanese Matcha Green Tea
+ $ shipping surcharge
Mizuba sources some of the finest Matcha green tea you can get -- directly from a 100-year old family tea firm in Japan. Matcha has an earthy intensity to it, and gives you much more caffeine than other teas, but unlike coffee, it releases slowly through the day so you never spike and crash. Choose from three of their best:
Daily Mizuba Matcha: Pure Japanese Matcha green tea from Uji, Japan. Flavor notes: Creamy and reminiscent of freshly churned farm butter, with a smooth mouthfeel, and a hint of toasted vanilla on the finish.
House Organic Mizuba Matcha: Pure Japanese Matcha green tea from Uji, Japan. Flavor notes: This classically umami Matcha has a brisk yet satisfying marine characteristic. Only harvested once a year!
Kichoen Ceremonial Mizuba Matcha: This tea is the Champagne of Matchas. Harvested from plants aged 35 years and older, this signature Matcha is incomparably smooth. Flavor notes: Has aromatics of dark chocolate and the subtle astringency of red wine, this green tea's depth of flavor is astounding and complex.

Laura Danson knows tea -- but it wasn't until she had her first frothy cup of matcha in Japan that she understood the depth of the tea's complex and nuanced flavor profiles. The experience spurred her toward a lifetime of seeking pure, seasonal teas, and fostered a dedication to studying Japanese tea cultivation, production, and culture. Mizuba sources their tea from a 100-year old family tea firm and personally knows the farmers who supply their tea.View Full Profile
