I've been using Zen Wonders Matcha in my chocolate and cakes for a few years now and can honestly say that I've not come across a matcha that I've been happier to use. The quality of the matcha is evident not only in the flavour, but also in the incredible vibrancy of colour and the beautiful sweet smell that's noticeable every single time you open the bag! This is without a doubt some of the best matcha you'll get your hands on in Australia!
Matcha: Japanese excellence in tea craftsmanship
Growing and crafting Premium Matcha green tea powder requires enormous effort, knowledge and attentive care. Made from the finest, young and softest shade-grown tea leaves following traditional methods, producing high-grade Matcha is a true work of art that involves a lot of patience, passion and attention to details in each and every step of the process.
It is good to know that when it comes to Matcha the spectrum of quality available on the market is extremely broad. We may say that it is nearly as broad as the one of wine, and the fast-increasing demand of industrial-grade culinary Matcha all around the world is pushing a lot of tea farmers to increase production, which often means moving away from traditional methods leading to a drop in quality.
One of our missions at Zen Wonders is to support Japanese artisans that are committed to preserve their precious old-school methods that give birth to the true uncompromising taste of authentic Japanese Matcha in its multitude and sophistication of flavour.
From world-class Ceremonial Grades for the tea enthusiast that is curious to experience the delicacy and fragrance of pure Matcha, to more affordable full-bodied Culinary Grades ideal for passionate home-bakers and industry professionals, we provide what best suits your needs.
