    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.

    Best Matcha Ice cream

    We purchased this matcha to use in our premium ice cream and it is outstanding. We will certainly be coming back when we sell though the batch.

    Best wishes!

    SO GOOD

    I've never been a big fan of matcha (I prefer my caffeine in espresso form), but ever since trying this matcha for my cafe I've been hooked! It's so smooth, there's no bitterness, I don't even need to sweeten it beyond the oat milk I mix it with! I'm so glad I discovered PARU's matcha!
