Premium UMatcha Ginger is unlike regular green tea, these tender, shade-grown leaves are ground to a fine powder creating a spicy kick of flavors in baked goods or savory dishes. This exceptional tea is abundant in nutrients and has the balanced flavors of what is referred to as umami (literally, "yummy" in Japanese). Premium UMatcha Ginger wakes up the flavors of miso soup, stir-fry, and sweet desserts.

What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
I have a nice hot cup of this every morning after Zazen, and a cup of the regular U Matcha Green with dinner each evening. I absolutely love the taste and it gives me a nice boost of energy, which is good as I'm not really a morning person.
Love this tea!!
I love this tea!! I have re-ordered 3 times. I tried to reproduce the flavor with regular matcha and ground ginger and regular matcha and grated fresh ginger, but I like this one best. A little cream and agave and it's awesome! Comfort food and dessert at the same time.
Tastes like seaweed
This tea was not my cup of tea. Package as loose tea that is stirred into hot water. Found it to be rather strong, so go light at first. Very strong flavor, tastes like seaweed. Blah.
A touch of ginger is perfect
I love this delicate, soft matcha. It is perfect in plain greek yogurt, as well as a cup of tea, and I have used it in veggies. I agree with the previous reviewer, it is small for the price. So it has to be a treat and not a regular choice for me. And I would love to have it more often.
I bought this to make green tea ice cream, and I thought it would be a full tin. Instead, it's a very small bag inside of the tin. It tasted really good but had no ginger flavor. Also, it's overpriced for the quantity that you get.
