U•Matcha® Ginger

100% Premium Japanese Matcha

Premium U•Matcha™ 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 U•Matcha™ Ginger wakes up the flavors of miso soup, stir-fry, and sweet desserts.

Each tin of U•Matcha® Ginger comes packaged with a free sample of one of our other great-tasting teas.

On average, Matcha contains less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.

Fill the kettle with fresh, filtered water and heat to just short of boiling. Fill matcha bowl or cup with warm water and pour out. Add ½ to 1 teaspoon of matcha powder to bowl or cup. Add 6 oz of steaming water (175°F). Experiment to find your favored strength. Using a tea whisk or a hand frother blend for one to two minutes until the matcha forms a nice top foam. For iced tea, blend ½ to 1 teaspoon to 8 oz of cold water and pour into a glass of ice.

I simply love this tea. The energy and nutrients provided by the matcha, and the anti-inflammatory "good stomach feel" aspects of the ginger combine to make this a tea that I look forward to consuming on a daily basis. I drink it straight up, no honey. I even enjoy the taste. I ordered on-line because I was unable to find it at my usual store. Probably due to supply issues due to covid. Who knows. I'm just happy to obtain it directly from the makers. Thank you, one and all.

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.
