|Also known as “Summer Grade”, the leaves of our Regular Grade are old enough to have said hello and bid farewell to the Spring months.
Harvested last of all (the third harvest period, as opposed to second harvest for the Spring Grade and first harvest for the Ceremonial Grade), Summer Grade Matcha has lost the sweetness exhibited by the previous grades.
To compensate, however, Summer Grade Matcha presents a bold, characteristic, and almost bitter flavor, as well as startling versatility.
Though it stands on its own as a drink, and is common in sushi restaurants throughout all of Japan, the kitchen is where Matcha truly shines.
Used widely in an enormous variety of recipes, Grade 6 Matcha lends its unique flavor to anything from pastries to ice cream—and can also be used for cosmetic purposes. A champion for a multitude of uses, this cheap but still delicious Matcha powder is deserving of a space in any pantry.
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!

I buy the regular matcha for matcha lattes. It has a fairly grassy taste that works well with the non-dairy milks that I use. I have also tried the spring and the ceremony. The ceremony is sweet and not grassy while the spring is in between. You should try all three to see which one is best for your uses. For matcha tea, the ceremony would be best. I have found the Ryu Mei matchas to be of consistent high quality and reasonable cost.

I have tried all three grades of matcha on this website. I am not a tea drinker but I love matcha latte a lot. Because of the process I prefer to drink matcha, the regular grade is the most cost effective. It is definitely more bitter than the other higher grade but it taste great with milk. If I am not a broke college student, I would definitely go with the spring grade though. But the regular grade is still very good. I have ordered like 4 orders from them and planning on continuing!

Great value, everyday drinking matcha. Even though its summer grade and not quite as sweet and fruity tasting as spring and ceremonial..... this matcha is excellent value and still delicious. Highly recommend.

Very good matcha as stated. More appropriate for smoothie, cooking/baking. Can also be drink occasionally but i prefer the ceremonial and spring matcha for that purpose.

Although not top-grade ceremonial matcha, you can't beat that price for that quality. Very vibrant green and I never have to use too much powder to achieve that strong green tea taste. Good enough for everyday drinking.

This is very good price for lower quality matcha. It is great for green tea matcha lattes; mixing with milk or milk alternatives, sweetened, and/or for baking purposes. I used to order this to make my daily matcha soy vanilla iced lattes, but I have made the step up and only drink them with the Spring Organic Matcha now. The taste difference is noticeable. The Spring is less "skunky" and brighter tasting, but of course it costs more. Ryu Mei always ships to me quickly. I receive shipments 3-4 days after ordering for shipment to Chicago.
