    About matcha (抹茶)

    Matcha is made from finely ground shade-grown tea leaves called "tencha." It contains about three times the antioxidants of regular green tea and is an excellent source for powerful catechins such as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) that are believed to have cleansing, anti-viral effects

    About premium matcha

    Premium matcha falls right in between ceremonial matcha—the highest grade, typically with a delicate flavor, meant to be consumed neat—and culinary matcha—which due to its intense flavor is best enjoyed when added to culinary creations.

    Note: In Japan, matcha is simply referred to as "matcha." The aforementioned grades are mainly used outside of Japan.

    Seriously. Your matcha is the best I have ever had, and I would say that I have had a variety of somewhat traditional teas that are offered as imports here. I absolutely adore your store and all of the beautifully kind and friendly employees who welcome me in. You have a customer for life.

    My All Time Fave

    I recommend Paru's matcha to literally everyone I know. I make my matcha latte every afternoon and I swear it is magic - A nice even energy boost without the crash and omg it is so delicious. I have tried other matcha powder and it does not compare to Paru. So thankful for Amy's commitment to quality!
