From creamy matcha lattes to roasted barley tea, get a caffeine boost with our selection of Japanese teas including matcha powders.
Matcha is a powdered green tea that has been consumed in Japan for more than 1,200 years. It’s full of antioxidants and vitamin E and has many health benefits that have been recognized by various medical organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO). Matcha powder is ground from the tea leaf and is grown in the shade, resulting in a more bitter flavor than other kinds of green tea. It is often served with wagashi (Japanese confectionery), as the bitterness provides a good balance when paired with sweet tasting foods. Our selection of matcha products includes instant matcha latte powdered mixes from brands such as Starbucks and Muji, to matcha teabags and loose premium grade matcha powder.
Other popular Japanese tea products that you can find at Japanese Tea include the classic Japanese green tea as well as royal milk tea, a rich and creamy tasting milky powdered tea that is sweeter in taste than drinking a regular cup of black tea with milk. We also offer mugicha (roasted barley tea) and hojicha (roasted green tea). The roasting process makes these teas rich in both aroma and flavor, and the low caffeine content makes them suitable for drinking before bedtime.
If you are looking for a more unconventional flavored tea then try one of our unique flavors such as kombucha plum and kelp, kuromame, shiitake mushroom tea, or Japanese burdock root.
