A Taste for Tea features stone-ground matcha from Japan.

We feature authentic ceremonial matcha – 100% stone ground matcha from the organic tea fields of Japan. Ceremonial matcha has a long history and has been part of the Japanese Tea Tradition for over 800 years.

Funnel stone ground Matcha

The matcha is poured into a funnel that routes the tea leaves down a tube to the middle of two large granite stones. The leaves are slowly ground into a powder between the stones. It takes a full hour to produce 1 oz. of stone ground matcha. You can see how very bright green and fine the powder is after grinding.

Part of the daily routine, matcha is often served with a small healthy treat called wagashi, a Japanese confectionery. In this photo is a traditional Japanese matcha bowl, called a chawan. The matcha is served with  a  sweet potato treat.

Here at A Taste for Tea we are a bunch a fun-loving tea drinkers, particularly matcha. We love matcha not only as a Japanese traditional and very auspicious drink, but for its wonderful health-giving properties. Loaded with anti-oxidants, catechins, chlorophyll and vitamin C, it's an enjoyable way to gain health and enjoy the l-theanine sense of sustained calm energy. Our goal is to share the tea and the experience for those learning all about matcha.
