juicy leaf only

  • Some types of matcha contain the stems and veins, which can dilute the nutritional value and leave it tasting bitter. Our matcha has had the stems and veins rigorously removed - we like to stick to our guns when it comes to quality and flavour.

  • The benefit of drinking matcha is that you ingest the actual green tea leaf, rather than drinking the infusion from a teabag. You can’t ingest all the goodness if your matcha comes in a bag.
