Culinary grade matcha is cultivated later in the growing season. These tea leaves are more mature giving this blend of matcha a much stronger taste. Typically the flavour is a too bitter for making drinks with, but is perfect to add a green punch of flavour in the kitchen.
Culinary matcha powders strong taste, means it blends well with other flavours when cooking. This matcha powder is a great addition to your favourite baking recipes and smoothies. When used in baking and particularly added to sweet recipes, matcha take on a very different flavour profile. It still maintains it's signature green colour.
All of our teas are organic and stone ground. Matcha Samurai is grown in Uji Japan, the region most famous for it's matcha tea.
