The sweet and rich taste of Meiko and Samidori varieties

Bright color, an exceptional concentration of good nutrients, and a subtle, sweet taste. This is how we can sum up this tour de force of our producers and tea masters.

The rich and sweet flavor is the first thing that strikes when tasting this tea. An intense combination of 2 varieties of green tea: the harvest in early May of the classic ceremonial Meiko variety and one of Uji's exclusive and old varieties of matcha: Samidori, which brings a fresh taste and rich color to this matcha .

The tea leaves of this mixture were selected from the young shoots of the May harvest, which is the most qualitative harvest period of the year, and that is why this mixture contains the maximum amount of chlorophyll, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

* Matcha tea contains caffeine (35 mg per serving = 2 grams of matcha). For comparison, 1 serving of espresso contains 75 mg of caffeine.


      Delivery :

      Our tea is 100% guaranteed, we have absolute confidence in the quality of the products we offer you. Matcha Botanicals is a team of passionate people who have nothing in mind to sell products that we are proud of. These are varieties carefully selected, developed and studied by our producers and with our tea master. The cultivation and manufacturing process is the subject of our full attention, because we are the first consumers of our products, and constantly in search of the best. 💯

      As specialists in traditional Japanese Matcha, we exclusively distribute Matcha from equally passionate family farms, all members of the Japan Tea Association, and all producing traditional Japanese Matcha since the 18th century.

      Their production methods are on quality standards much higher than that of the "BIO" standards, a simple comparison with a single cup between a "BIO" commercial matcha and those from the plantations that we offer is eloquent!

      For our producers, it does not make sense to pay dearly for an ORGANIC label which would guarantee a lower quality than the real quality of their products, while increasing their costs. The production is analyzed regularly to guarantee its quality as strictly as a traditional Organic Matcha. 🌳

      Once harvested, the leaves are washed and steamed to freeze their aromas. The steam forms a protective film around the leaf, which allows it to retain its properties. They are then dried in hot air in large nets, and stored. 

      Less than 30 days before landing in your cup, the leaves are ground, then shipped by boat and train 🚞 to Europe, guaranteeing unparalleled freshness and an exemplary carbon footprint 🌈. 
      By the way, cultivating a tea plant is like planting a young tree every 5 years.

      How to prepare a Matcha?

      Simple, with water

      The traditional preparation, also known as "Ceremonial", is best with green tea Matchas:

      • Sift in a bowl 2 g of matcha through a sieve or a colander (2 g = 1/2 teaspoon) in a bowl

      • Pour a few drops of cold water

      • With the bamboo whisk, dissolve the matcha into a fine and homogeneous paste by making circular movements against the turn of the bowl.

      • Pour 150 ml of hot water at approximately 75 ° in the preparation, beating in a straight line with the whisk, so as to form a nice foam.

      • Enjoy the invigorating taste and creamy texture of your matcha!

      Matcha Latte

      • Prepare a matcha "base" by following the first three points of the ceremonial matcha recipe

      • Heat 150 ml of milk and whip it with a milk frother (excellent with oat, almond or coconut milk) 

      • If you prefer sweet drinks, add honey or sugar to hot milk. 

      • Pour the milk and the foam into your matcha tea, continuing to whisk everything together using the milk frother.

      • If you want a cold drink, do not heat the milk. You can also add ice cubes.

      Matcha bowl

      For two people : 

      • Pre-freeze 3 bananas, peeled and cut into pieces

      • Mix the frozen bananas with 100 ml of coconut milk until a smooth consistency is obtained.

      • Add 4 g of matcha powder to the blender

      • Transfer the smoothies to bowls and decorate them with granola, seasonal berries / fruits, nuts or chocolate

      • Your quick and healthy breakfast is ready!
