matcha sticks black
Matcha Sticks Black in bulk available for wholesale. Matcha, the focal point of the Japanese Tea Ceremony, is a fine powder made by grinding green tea leaves. Only the finest, young, shade-grown gyokuro tea leaves are used to create matcha. The leaves are plucked and laid out flat to dry. Veins are removed and the leaves, now called tencha, are carefully ground in granite mills until they become the precious powder. Easy preparation is achieved by placing 1 teaspoon of matcha per cup (or to taste) in a cup, adding a few drops of hot water (160-180F) and stirring with a spoon until a paste forms. Add the rest of the water and stir.

Our matcha comes from Uji, Kyoto, Japan, and is a first harvest, spring tea. A Samidori cultivar, it is considered a high grade for everyday consumption.

Ingredients & Lore

blended with Golden Monkey Tea

Full confession: black powdered tea isn’t new. Centuries ago, teas were baked and shaped into rounds or rectangles so that the tea would survive the long trek traders traveled along the Silk Road. When these stalwart men paused for a cup of tea, they broke off a piece from one of the bricks, crushed it into a powder, put it into a cup, and added hot water. Made from Golden Monkey, the classic black that’s a tippy gold wonder redolent with floral notes, our black matcha is easier to use than the original tea brick and a lot neater!
