Intricate and rich with an alluring semi-sweet aftertaste, matcha has been enjoyed by tea drinkers around the world for centuries. Our ceremonial grade matcha is 100% organic and has been sourced straight from Japan.
With over 900 studies now conducted on Matcha, research has shown that these green tea leaves have tremendous health benefits. However, unlike regular green tea, when drinking Matcha, you are actually drinking the whole green tea leaf which has just been finely ground into a powder form. By doing so, Matcha is much more concentrated in antioxidants, chlorophylls, and amino acids than other forms of green tea. To learn more about this amazing tea, click here.

Traditionally, Matcha is made using water. The green powder is added to a bowl of boiling water and rapidly mixed using a traditional bamboo whisk until it begins to froth and has a thick creamy texture.
Today Matcha powder is thrown into everything from milk to spaghetti! At Meta, we recommend mixing your ceremonial matcha powder with either water or milk. Using half a teaspoon, throw your matcha powder into your liquid of choice. Shake or stir, and you are ready to go! Matcha can be made hot or cold, making it a great drink at any time of the year.
Caffeine Content: Matcha contains approximately 70 mg of caffeine per 8 ounce cup.
