Step Up Your Matcha Game

Watch Matcha being produced in Japan and learn how we source our Mei Leaf Matcha.


Matcha is the darling of health foods these days with all sorts of Matcha based drinks and foods popping up on the high street.

But let's not forget that Matcha is actually one of the most ancient ways of drinking tea, starting in China a thousand years ago. It may seem like the most modern, instagram-friendly drink, but it is based on deep traditions.

As always, the problem with popularity is maintaining quality. The variation of Matcha available on the market is immense, with everyone claiming that their tea is ceremonial grade and highest quality. But how can you separate the good from the mediocre?

In this video we give you a tour of Matcha farms in Japan and show you how we choose the Mei Leaf Matcha.
