I enjoy this matcha mixed with avocado and coconut milk. :)
I have ordered the match 2nd harvest green tea twice now I absolutely love it. I got off of coffee without even getting a migraine from caffeine. Will be ordering again. Thank you
I have tried seven different brands of matcha and this one has been my favorite so far. It has been the best tasting matcha for my picky palate and I like the way I feel when drinking it in the morning. It gives me a nice calming boost with a sense of well-being without any anxiety or jitters. It's part of my everyday diet of healthy clean eating, while maintaining my 145 pound weight loss. I can't start my day without it now...I take it with me when I travel frequently. Thank you Wild Foods for such a superior product!
P.S. Please make a larger jar!!!
This Matcha has a beautiful deep green color and the best-tasting tea I've discovered.
Digging this matcha tea. Very versatile in use. Used it as directed, in smoothies, and made matcha lattes. Wonderful taste. Not over bearing in flavor or anything. And for the price it's a great purchase. Definitely ordering more down the road!

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.
You will use about 1.5g per serving, so with our 40g size ceremonial grade tins, your total servings ends up approximately 26 servings. You'll get a little more or a little less depending on how strong you make and prefer your matcha to taste.
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!
