Premium Grade Matcha
For the true tea connoisseur, Aiya’s premium Matcha provides a level of quality that is typically reserved for high-class Japanese tea ceremonies. While daily consumption is encouraged, this grade is typically reserved for special occasions.
This Premium Grade Matcha is the best of the best we currently offer.
Of the over 200 farmers in Nishio city that are contracted by Aiya, only a select few have the experience and knowledge to produce Matcha high enough in quality to be called “Premium Grade.” The result of their efforts is a rare treat.
Our Premium Grade Matcha has a robust Matcha flavor packed with tons of natural sweetness (Umami flavor) derived from the amino acid L-theanine. Ideal to be served as Koi-cha (thick style Matcha), this grade can also be enjoyed as Usu-cha (thin style Matcha). Although we recommend this Matcha for use on special occasions, you can enjoy this luxury everyday if you so desire.
All of our Matcha is grown and produced in Nishio city in Aichi prefecture. Nishio has been known the world over as the cradle of the finest Matcha for more than 800 years.
Each 30g (1.1 oz) tin is good for approximately 15 servings.
