It takes many years to become a master of the Japanese tea ceremony – so we were delighted when we came across this intriguing Japanese tea, which combines the unique flavour and benefits of matcha with the convenience of whole-leaf green tea. Our highly unusual Matcha Guricha is created by coating guricha (Japanese for “curly tea”) in matcha, resulting in a tea that’s full-bodied and beautifully flavoursome, with a lush, herbal richness. It’s matcha without the fuss – and it’s refreshingly delicious.

Tea was first introduced to Japan around the turn of the first millennium, and since then it's become much more than just a drink: chado or "the way of tea" is a fine art for the Japanese that takes a lifetime to master. Today Japan is famous for its lush, verdant green tea, thanks to a process of steaming the leaves.
Green Tea Power Powder
When tea was first introduced to Japan, the Chinese custom was to grind the leaves down to a fine powder, then beat them with water to form a smooth, full-bodied tea. It's a custom that survived in Japan as matcha (literally "powder tea"), a finely powdered green tea which is revered not just as a drink but as a way of life.
