Welcome, I’m the Matcha Samurai – armed with Matcha the drink of the ancient Japanese Samurai warriors. They drank Matcha tea prebattle for energy and endurance. Now it’s my honour and main quest to bring the incredible flavor of Matcha and its versatile use to the western culture. As well as for you all to experience the amazing health and energy benefits of this superfood powder.
Matcha more about me
As part of my Japanese heritage, I grew up with the unique Matcha flavour - nothing beats Matcha ice-cream and chocolate! Two years ago, I decided the taste if it was too good not to share with the rest of the global tribe, so Matcha Samurai was born.
Yes…but what exactly is Matcha?
Matcha is the finest of young leaves of green tea served in a powder form. Other teas steep in hot water, their essence infuses into the water, but the best bit - the leaves - is discarded. Matcha is finely ground tea leaves that dissolve in the water. This means you get all the antioxidant benefits and flavour from the tea leaves.
‘Steeped’ in culture
Matcha is well-known in Japan for its delicious flavour and versatility. Matcha has been a part of Japanese culture for hundreds of years. Preparing Matcha tea is a quiet reflective act, leading to a Zen meditative state. Because of this, Matcha is important for both ceremonies and daily Japanese living.
To preserve our Matcha quality and history, we source the highest quality, organic and traditionally grown Matcha from Uji, Japan. The tea leaves are stone-ground to be Samurai-approved!
‘Mix and Matcha’
Matcha Samurai supplies three types of Matcha, which you can ‘mix and matcha’:
- Organic Ceremonial Grade Matcha Green Tea powder – perfect for special occasions/ceremonies (drink with hot water only).
- Organic Café Grade Matcha Green Tea powder – a powder that can be enjoyed every day on its own with hot water, but many love to add milk and sugar to taste. A great coffee alternative.
- Organic Culinary Grade Matcha Green Tea powder – use to add flavour to cooking and all kinds of baking and sweet treats.
"Douzo" is a Japanese word meaning "please, go ahead", a word of offering. Please enjoy our Matcha.Douzo! From the Matcha Samurai
