Explore matcha at its finest
From trending matcha desserts on social media to matcha smoothies on every menu, there’s no denying that it has become increasingly popular in recent years. If you’ve ever tried a matcha dessert or smoothie, you’ll know better than anyone that it certainly lives up to the hype. But nothing quite tops the creamy, frothy texture of an oh-so-good matcha tea.
Whether you're a tea lover looking to try something new or simply curious to learn more about this ancient Japanese beverage, matcha is a unique and delicious option you’ll love.
What is matcha?
Matcha is a traditional Japanese green tea that has been enjoyed for centuries, made from finely ground tea leaves with a flavour unlike any other and its infamous bright green colour we all know and love.
Traditionally it’s drunk in a Japanese tea ceremony, but these days its superpowers and sensational flavours are revered by tea drinkers all over the globe.
Like all green tea, Matcha originates from the Camellia sinensis plant but is harvested a little differently, which creates its vibrant green colour. Matcha powder is ground from ‘tencha’, which we call the green tea leaves in their entirety. The result is a fine powder that retains all the nutrients of the green tea leaves and provides a mega boost of good green stuff for a frothy, invigorating beverage unlike any other.
How to make matcha
Our matcha accessory tools let you pay homage to matcha’s origins in a traditional manner. Enjoy delicious matcha made with authentic style, whisked with a traditional matcha bamboo whisk, then sipped and savoured from a matcha bowl. There’s no better way!
To brew, simply whisk one teaspoon per cup in 80°C water, creating a delightfully frothy mix. You can drink straight from the matcha bowl, poured over ice or as a latte. For a creamy matcha latte, you can add warm, frothed milk and honey.

Does matcha have caffeine?
All teas derived from the Camellia sinensis plant contain varying levels of caffeine. Only tisanes made from fruit or herbal origins do not. Matcha contains caffeine and the amino acid L-theanine, meaning the caffeine content is processed a little differently in your body. Caffeine and L-theanine provide a slow-release fuel for focused energy without the post-caffeine jitters.
