My favorite matcha

While every matcha from Kettl is great, this is my favorite. Super rich mouthfeel and very well balanced. Perfect to start my days with.

Divine Green Foam

Many years of mostly (high quality) sencha experience, I am far from an expert on matcha. In fact this was the highest price of any matcha I have ever tried but it so far exceeded the marginal price difference that "blown away" is the technical term to describe it. The most gratifying and pleasureable flavor, never mind tea, experience I have ever had. Because of it I am now officially qualified to to say I understand why matcha is so revered in Japan!

Creamy Edamame

Mmmmm....Creamy edamame with a deep umami and a wonderfully long finish. Balanced sweetness. Another winner from the Furukawa family.


A super balanced and savory matcha. I love this cup :)

I agree, "A True Gem..."

This Matcha has a smooth, easy character. Clean. My favorite everyday Matcha. enjoy.

Success! Feel free to continue shopping or head to your cart .
