*Price increase notice: due to an overwhelming worldwide demand for this award-winning producer’s Matcha, prices have increased and will likely keep increasing in the coming years. There seems to be a demand that exceeds production capacity by 18 times according to our producer, and we are honoured to have been given a supply priority due to our ongoing relationship with this farmer. We are proud to still be one of the world’s most affordable stores to offer his Matcha at a reasonable cost to our customers.
