Low Caffeine

This particular matcha tea has 80% less caffeine than most other matcha. Matcha contains very large amounts of Vitamin C (over 4 times more than an orange!), but also contains quite high volumes of caffeine.

This matcha is perfect for those wanting to cut down on their caffeine intake or looking to have some matcha before bed. It is also a great choice for younger tea lovers.

About the Tea Maker

Marukyu Koyamaen

Marukyu Koyamaen is one of the most prestigious tea makers in Japan, having been producing matcha tea since 1704.  Having developed the original production system, they now use a combination of modern and traditional processes to maintain as many historic elements as possible. They don’t grind matcha tea manually anymore, but they do use traditional stones. Supplying top tea ceremony schools, high ranking shrines and temples, and top hotels, they’ve won numerous tea competition awards.

How to Make

1. Add 2 scoops of matcha powder to your tea bowl or cup.

2. Pour around 70ml of not quite boiling water into the tea bowl.

3. Whisk the matcha with a chasen (Japanese bamboo whisk) or a small whisk, for about 15 seconds until smooth and slightly foamy.

Koicha (Thick Matcha):

We recommend storing your matcha in the refrigerator once opened. For the best flavour and colour, we recommend finishing the tin within 8 weeks of opening.
