Matcha is a powdered tencha* historically used in the Japanese tea ceremony. Our Organic Ceremonial Matcha is made from the most tender young tea leaves that have been shade grown. Compared with Organic Daily Matcha, it possesses a smoother and more savory flavor and a sweeter aroma. Organic Ceremonial Matcha is suitable for serving in Japanese tea ceremony, welcoming esteemed guests, or indulging in the finest of green teas during times of relaxation.
*Tencha is a minimally-processed, fluffy leaf tea produced specifically to make fresh matcha.
This price point is the sweet spot for me as far as something I can afford to drink regularly but is not so cheap that I have to mix it with milk or other ingredients. I have been trying a few brands at this price point (give or take a dollar or two) and this one seems to be the best so far. I drink it whisked in a chawan as usucha (thin tea) and it is great.
This matcha is the best! It has a rich flavor and wonderful taste. It is truly ceremonial! Other ceremonial grade matchas I have tried fall short in terms of taste, purity and flavor. I highly recommend!
Sugimoto Ceremonial Matcha
Absolutely fantastic. Great packaging, came with a panflet with recipes, coupon, free samplers and hand written letter. Good quality product from Japan. I am not used to receiving such great personal attention on packages I buy online, so 5/5.

Organic Ceremonial Matcha`
If I were to describe this matcha in 3 words they would be sweet, grassy, and light.
The powder is bright green and very fine, so it it blends well and makes a thick drink with plenty of foam. This matcha was reminiscent of sweet peas with a crisp short finish after each sip. If you prefer your matcha refreshingly light and vegetal rather than heavy and umami, than this matcha might be up your ally.

Sugimoto organic ceremonial matcha
Matcha is basically my sole beverage. I have tried MANY brands at different price points, but this is hands down the best tasting matcha available. You will not be disappointed. Also, Sugimoto is very efficient if you need to order online.
