Azuma Tea Garden

OEM - Matcha Ronin - Azuma Tea Garden: All-Purpose Matcha

From JPY ¥660

Azuma Tea Garden is a family-operated, fourth generation farm specializing in tencha tea leaf cultivation and processing (see below). This all-purpose matcha is a culinary grade matcha from the beautiful tea fields of Wazuka, Kyoto prefecture. A finely grounded, spring harvested matcha, this matcha can be widely used to make delights such as matcha tiramisu, matcha cookies, and matcha lattes… (We would love to hear other ideas!) And yes, it is all-purpose, you can simply enjoy it straight as a matcha! 

Note that culinary matcha has unfortunately received a bad reputation because in the mass market, the term “culinary” is often used to refer to poorly processed matcha. However, that is not the case! This culinary matcha comes from Azuma Gardens and may be the perfect matcha powder for you if you are looking to use it to bake, or to add it into your drink.  If you are looking for a more affordable culinary matcha solely for baking, please take a look at the Azuma Garden's cooking culinary matcha
