This blend of Matcha powder is a cultivated from the 1st harvest. The powder we're left with is a nice forest green colour and releases a soothing delicate flavour that can be enjoyed in lattes, smoothies, baked goods, or simply on its own.

🌎 Not only are our tins cute and earth-friendly, tea tins are pretty great as they prolong the longevity and freshness of tea! Even in our tightly sealed bags, it's natural that tea will start to lose its flavour in 3 months of storage. Storing your tea leaves in an air-tight container and out of sunlight can keep it fresh for over a year.
The matcha powder was a beautiful bright green and tasted as delicious as it looked. Mixed it with oat milk and the result was a cold creamy drink that was perfect for hot days.
