Read on if you want a little more information on Matcha.

What is matcha?

Matcha is a Japanese green tea powder made from the highest quality shade-grown tea leaves. As a powder, it is consumed whole, rather than steeped, meaning you get all the nutrition contained in the leaves.

If you find yourself on this page, chances are you already know about matcha and its health benefits, so I won’t go into more detail here. Check out these pages for:

  • general info on matcha
  • a clear overview of matcha’s health benefits


Where to buy matcha

You can get matcha green tea powder in any specialty tea store and more recently, in most health-food stores.

Personally, I get mine over the internet. Most online tea stores carry matcha, but my personal favorite is Matcha Source. Check out their detailed yet simple buyer’s guide for help in selecting the perfect grade of matcha for your needs.

For many people, Amazon is the most convenient place to buy tea. Most of their matcha is not that great, but they do carry DoMatcha, which is a reputable, high-quality brand.
