Matcha is green tea in a powdered form; instead of being strained as in most teas, the leaves are whisked right into the tea. Aside from giving the tea a unique and varied flavor, it also provides innumerable health benefits to those who enjoy it, whether regularly or on occasion.
Ceremony grade organic Matcha green tea is created from our early 1st harvest. This delicate tea is, as its name suggests, reserved for the notorious and elaborate Japanese Tea Ceremony. The ceremony grade is Ryu Mei’s sweetest, most vibrant Matcha; our highest quality, it is a bestseller among its peers as a green tea product. Since the tea leaves for ceremonial Matcha are harvested at their youngest phase, they retain the pleasant flavors and numerous nutrients stored throughout the winter.
Packed and distributed in US to support US Jobs.
Matcha is one of the healthiest forms of green tea, boasting the highest level of antioxidants. During the manufacturing process, the tea leaves (or tencha) are ground into a fine powder to produce matcha; this means that, unlike other teas in which the tea leaf is simply strained, matcha green tea allows the drinker to take in all of the nutrients available—one cup of Matcha tea has the same amount of beneficial antioxidants as ten cups of regular green tea!
Extremely health beneficial and known to prevent cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, high cholesterol levels, cardiovascular disease, and impaired immune function. Matcha contains a high content of powerful anti-oxidant called EGCG.

Cleaning the Utensils
| Chasen: To clean the chasen, fill the chawan with hot water and whisk it for a minute, as if you were whisking green tea. Hold it up at eye level to inspect the bristles for any stray powder, and repeat the process as needed. Shake it off and set it aside to air dry.
Chashaku: Wipe the chashaku with a clean, dry cloth; during the tea ceremony, a silk cloth called a fukusa is used.
Chawan: Gently hand-wash the chawan with warm water, and dry with a clean cloth.

A virtual powerhouse of taste and nutritional impact against cancer. I am a cancer survivor and take 3 oz of water and ceremony twice a day.

I was skeptical -but this is smooth. no bitterness, mixes complete. gentle green taste. received quickly. ceremonial matcha- obvious difference in quality, worth the cost.

I really really love ke this particular matcha but where I used to be able to find it on amazon.co.uk for less than £20, this time I had spent over £40 for the same size and same matcha but from this website, don’t get me wrong the quality is still unbeatable but I won’t be ordering this anymore as I live in uk and it would cost me twice as much to order this every other month

I have been buying the Organic Spring Matcha from RyuMei for years, and have been happy with it. Because they are sold out of this product, I decided to upgrade, and buy the Organic Ceremonial Matcha.
This is more concentrated, I use far less. I make a matcha latte with almond milk every morning. With the ceremonial grade, it is richer.
I think I will have a difficult decision when the spring matcha is available again whether to go back to that or continue to use the ceremonial.

I have ordered this product several times and don't have any other matcha tea to compare it to. I think it's excellent.

Everyone that tries my iced Japanese green tea has said I should sell it and that they would buy it.

Always great quality Matcha for a great price, from Ryu-Mei! I use it only in my Lattes and smoothies.

has a taste that you crave and can't wait for the next morning time to mix up more matcha

I usually purchase the Macha for my tea lesson from several different traditional macha stores, Kyoto, Japan. I do not know their products are organic or not, however, the flavor is much better than your product. Especially I can tell it when I drink with hot water.
Unfortunately, I can not use it for my tea ceremony lesson because my students (all Americans) know the good flavor of tea.
I will drink it only with cold water but not for the tea ceremony. I will keep to use Kyoto's Shinise （老舗）tea ordered by air.

I have been getting ryu-mei matcha for years now and its the best matcha by far.

I have only tried cheap chinese matcha and starbucks matcha. The ryu mei ceremony grade matcha definitely surpasses both of them. The ryu mei ceremony grade matcha is not bitter whatsoever, even when I get small chunks of it in my mouth. Starbucks uses way too much sugar in their matcha, the chinese over-oxidize their matcha making it bitter and astringent. I will definitely reorder this matcha when I'm close to running out.
