A perfect bowl to enjoy my Matcha

Very cute, elegant white bowl to enjoy a nice Matcha. The flat bottom makes the whisking easy and smooth. The irregular design gives it aute artisanal look.

Tea review

Delicious and high quality

Favourite matcha

I’ve tried numerous brands of matcha and this one by far is the best tasting one. Very smooth matcha flavour without any bitterness. I drink it every single day and couldn’t be happier about the quality.

Happy customer

I’m new to green tea and was recommended your particular tea. It certainly lives up to its reputation, and I now love to savour a small cup every day. Thanks for your prompt service and your helpful tips. They inspired me to try a few new ideas. All the best and, again, many thanks. Sal B
