Matcha is a very special tea powder and is not the same as powdered green tea. Matcha is a fine powder of a stone milled from Tencha (made from the leaves of specially shade grown tea trees). Tencha is only about 10% of the original harvest, and it takes 1 hour to produce 40g of Matcha. When drinking Matcha you are receiving the full benefits of green tea as the whole tea leaf is being consumed.
Nippon Tea is not your ordinary tea shop. Our store in Tokyo is now in its 4th generation and has been an undeniably important part of the community, offering all suppliers and consumers a friendly and professional experience. Nippon Tea is now proud to provide all New Zealanders the same quality products and services alongside the advantages to you and your wellbeing.
