H•K Matcha is like no other, a rich combination of taste and nutritional value, there’s a reason it comes dressed in black.
Getting Started – Some simple instructions and tips on how to optimally prepare your H•K Matcha Tea
MIX grade vs. MASTER grade – Both grades of Matcha deliver the same astounding health benefits, however they do vary in consistency, taste, smell and colour.
The H•K MASTER grade Matcha is our best grade of Matcha tea. We sampled many, many kilograms of Matcha throughout the orient and found this to be the top selection (in a variety of categories). The H•K MASTER grade Matcha has a sweeter flavour and a vibrant green colour, and a fantastic aroma. The top developing leaves of the plant (camellia sinensis) are used for this grade of Matcha. It is also grown out of direct sunlight, to help create supple leaves that can be ground up very fine, which aid in the mixing process of your tea. H•K MASTER grade Matcha is fantastic option for drinking it in Matcha tea, or Matcha lemonade on a warm day!
The H•K Organic MIX grade Matcha is our organic matcha better suited for mixing into smoothies or adding it to baked goods & other recipes. The MIX grade Matcha is not as sweet and has a more bitter taste to it. The Matcha carries less aroma and colour, ground from mature leaves that were grown in direct sunlight. Organic mix grade also makes a great tea and packs a tiny bit more of an antioxidant punch due to the maturity of the leaves.
