THE DIFFERENT GRADES OF MATCHA TEA

Matcha tea comes in different grades. What you pay for is flavor profile, not nutrients. Young leaves, plucked early in the harvest, produce delicate and vegetal flavors. Mature leaves contain more coarse matter from stems and veins and taste more astringent. The following illustration denotes how grades are determined.

Which matcha should I choose?

“If you are really into the distinct rich creamy mouth feel of a Kama Ceremony Grade Matcha you should invest in it. If you are blending into a berry drink, then I always recommend a Café Grade Gotcha Matcha which is a better value. It’s like cooking with fine wine, you wouldn’t use a Barollo for spaghetti sauce.” – Alissa White, Founder Matcha Source 


 

WHICH MATCHA UTENSILS ARE BEST?

If you can choose only one matcha utensil, we recommend starting with a bamboo whisk, which froths the tea in the bowl and brings out the delicate flavor profiles of Kama and Morning Matcha. Additionally, we offer several starter sets and bundles, here including the WhiskIt Kit 3-Piece Set.
