I've been drinking matcha for many years. Tried many brands & grades. My search is over.....Best Match & price I found for organic....look no more! THANK YOU WILD FOODS! Subscription is wonderful too!
Taste really good and also even better when mixing in the blender with other wild food ingredients. Thanks for the raw natural superfoods.
I mix matcha with cocotrophic for a nice warm start to my morning. I found 175 degree water makes a long lasting warm cup of matcha. Any warmer and there is a slightly off taste. 160 to 175 degrees seems to be the perfect temperature.
It’s such a good tea, really wonderful, smooth and calming flavour... I add a teaspoon of raw honey, prefect!
This stuff is legit! I have ordered other brands, and they are very bitter in taste. WILD's matcha is very smooth tasting and and I absolutely enjoy drinking matcha again. Thanks for providing great products guys!

Wild Matcha Green Tea FAQ's
The 1st and 2nd harvest relates to the part of then plant used. The first harvest uses only the small and delicate leaves and buds and as a result produces the best flavor that is pure. The 2nd harvest, while having the same nutritional content, uses more of the more mature leaves and parts of the leaf stems, which results in a slightly more astringent taste. That said, the taste difference between 1st and 2nd grade Wild Matcha is ever so slight... so slight, in fact, you might not even be able to tell the difference!
Our organic certified Wild Matcha is grown on a small team farm on a foggy mountainside in Ujitawara Town, Kyoto. Harima-en Tea Factory Co. Ltd. started its business in 1901 and have won 12 awards for their matcha and organic and sustainable farming practices, three of which are from the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture.
The tea leaves used to make Wild Matcha are known as Tencha. They are delicate shade-grown tea leaves. Being shade-grown increases the chlorophyll and amino acid content of the leaves, and contributes to the sweet grass flavor indicative of a high-quality matcha. The tea trees are covered under cloth to protect the leaves from sunlight for 20 days before harvesting in order to make the tea greener and tastier. Finally, the hand-picked tea leaves are steam-dried over time before being carefully stone-ground into a fine green powder.
There is about ~33mg per 8oz cup of matcha if using 1.5g or 1/2 TSP of matcha powder. Double that if using 3g or 1 tsp.
Absolutely! In fact, Matcha is traditionally prepared via the "tea ceremony," which is a traditional Japanese cultural activity in which matcha was prepared with hot water. Matcha wasn't used in food and drinks until later on. Either way, as long as you get Wild Matcha into your body, you are consuming the wildly amazing nutrition as well!
You can just drop it right in and mix or blend it however you are mixing your smoothie! That is the easiest and most often used way. You could also experiment with creating the initial matcha concentrate with 4oz of hot water and whisk it thoroughly then add this to any desired beverage. This would be option #2. If you are already blending a smoothie, I'd say just add it before the final blend, maybe a few quick pulses and you are good to go!
