Kiwami Single Cultivar Matcha - 30g

$ 39.00

Kiwami means “ultimate” or “extreme.” As such, our Kiwami matcha is our highest grade of matcha. It comes from single-cultivar tea leaves, ground from hand-picked tea leaves of the renowned Okumidori cultivar in Shizuoka, Japan. The Okumidori cultivated tea variety is very ideal for making into matcha. Our Kiwami matcha has a balanced umami flavor, with tasting notes of floral, honey, and cream. It is the best matcha we've ever tasted.

This matcha is pesticide-free, ground from first-harvest tea leaves grown on a single estate — because we believe you should know where your matcha’s been and the journey it took to get to you, from farm-to-whisk™.

 

The Story:

Matcha grows through the winter, and for the final 3-4 weeks of growth, it’s shaded — this is part of the traditional matcha-making process that gives matcha its umami flavor and rich green color. What’s special about this matcha is that it’s grown in a really special way: we know the exact farm that provided 100% of the matcha in this tin (aka it’s not a blend), and the necessary shade is provided by solar panels that generate power for nearby cities. Plus, it's pesticide free and only uses organic food scraps as organic fertilizer that is produced by the local community to maintain a closed-loop system.

 

The Flavor:

Floral | Cream | Honey

Refreshing fragrance with a hint of natural sweetness.

 

The Move:

Use a bamboo whisk to vigorously blend matcha with water and/or a splash of milk (we prefer unsweetened, organic almond milk)

 

The Breakdown:

Recommended preparation: Matcha Americano, hot or cold.

 Hot:

  1. Warm 8 oz of water to 180*
  2. Sift a 1/2 tsp over 1.5 oz warm water in a mug or bowl and whisk well!
  3. Pour remaining water into matcha concentrate
  4. Enjoy!

Cold:

  1. Grab your favorite travel bottle or mason jar + lid
  2. Scoop a heaping 1/2 tsp into your bottle
  3. Add water and ice
  4. Shake up and enjoy!

 

Works great as a matcha latte, too!

Matcha Contains

Powerful Antioxidants

Matcha is an antioxidant powerhouse. On the ORAC scale (oxygen radical absorbance capacity – a measure of the antioxidant capacity of food), it surpasses all other antioxidant-rich foods including blueberries, pomegranates, and dark chocolate.

The antioxidants in matcha are made up of 60% catechin polyphenols – the most potent antioxidant. Catechins offer protection against many kinds of cancer, helping to prevent heart disease, reduce cholesterol, and slow the process of aging. The most important and abundant polyphenol in matcha is EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) – the same polyphenol found in all green teas.

Matcha Provides

Sustained Energy & Focus

L-Theanine, an amino acid found in matcha, combines with caffeine to create increased focused and sustained energy throughout the day. L-Theanine has been hailed for relaxing the brain, muscles, and blood vessels. It can help lower blood pressure, enhance mood and promotes a sense of calmness by relaxing alpha waves in the brain (associated with a feeling of happiness and alertness) and increasing dopamine production – two of the brain’s ‘feel good’ chemicals. This amino acid is the secret ingredient that leaves you feeling energetic and focused yet calm all day long.

Matcha is

Cleansing & Detoxifying

Matcha is five times higher in chlorophyll than regular green tea. The primary reason chlorophyll is considered a superfood is because of its strong antioxidant and anticancer effects. Chlorophyll benefits the immune system because it’s able to form tight molecular bonds with certain chemicals that contribute to oxidative damage and diseases like cancer or liver disease. Chlorophyll can help give you clear skin, protect your blood and heart, and also help prevent joint inflammation.
