Histoire du Produit et Expertise

The tea bushes producing this ceremonial quality are grown on a few exceptional plots, ideally exposed, with unique soil that forces the plant to give the best in its leaves. The harvested Tencha (the name given to the leaves used for Matcha) is ground to the highest level of fineness attainable for Matcha.
The cultivation is also particular: the tea plants have been shaded for 35 days before harvesting, with a technique called "en étagère", which allows the aromas to develop particularly well.

The result is of a rare quality: a perfectly balanced aromatic power with marked vegetal notes, a creamy texture with an abundant foam, a bright emerald green color, a scent in which we already perceive the umami.

As for all our Matcha, the leaves used come from the first harvest of May, which is the first of each year. It is the most qualitative by far.

Consommation et préparation

Déposez environ une cuillère à café de votre Matcha dans un bol ou un mug, et ajoutez progressivement de l'eau ou du lait, chaud ou glacé, en fouettant avec un Chasen (un fouet en bambou que vous trouverez sur notre site) jusqu'à faire une émulsion! 

Bonne dégustation!

Delivery :

• Free delivery for orders over 69 Euros / CHF.

• Shipped in 1 working day, delivery in 48-72 hours in Europe.

• We only ship matcha freshly ground, guaranteeing the best quality, and work just in time with Japan. So when demand is high, it may be possible to wait 2-3 more days for the next delivery from Kyoto, as we are not shipping second grade matcha. We will contact you by phone or email if necessary.

Garantie et BIO

Our tea is 100% guaranteed, we have absolute confidence in the quality of the products we offer you. Matcha Botanicals is a team of passionate people who have nothing in mind to sell products that we are proud of. These are varieties carefully selected, developed and studied by our producers and with our tea master. The cultivation and manufacturing process is the subject of our full attention, because we are the first consumers of our products, and constantly in search of the best. 💯

As specialists in traditional Japanese Matcha, we exclusively distribute Matcha from equally passionate family farms, all members of the Japan Tea Association, and all producing traditional Japanese Matcha since the 18th century.

Their production methods are on quality standards much higher than that of the "BIO" standards, a simple comparison with a single cup between a "BIO" commercial matcha and those from the plantations that we offer is eloquent!

For our producers, it does not make sense to pay dearly for an ORGANIC label which would guarantee a lower quality than the real quality of their products, while increasing their costs. The production is analyzed regularly to guarantee its quality as strictly as a traditional Organic Matcha. 🌳

Once harvested, the leaves are washed and steamed to freeze their aromas. The steam forms a protective film around the leaf, which allows it to retain its properties. They are then dried in hot air in large nets, and stored. 

Less than 30 days before landing in your cup, the leaves are ground, then shipped by boat and train 🚞 to Europe, guaranteeing unparalleled freshness and an exemplary carbon footprint 🌈. 
By the way, cultivating a tea plant is like planting a young tree every 5 years. 

Les 3 signes pour reconnaître un Matcha de qualité

How to choose your matcha?

There are 3 clues by which you can easily determine the quality of a matcha: 

• The colour : must be bright and lively. If the matcha has an emerald green color it means that it has been stored and transported with care, without contact with oxygen and daylight, so the tea has retained all of its properties. If the matcha has a dark or dirty yellow color it means that it is simply not pure matcha or that it has lost its properties due to interaction with oxygen or sunlight. For this reason, after purchase never pour matcha into a transparent jar and store it in a dry and dark place.

• The smell: it must be pleasant, soft and at the same time saturated. If matcha smells like dry hay with hints of bitterness / seaweed (fish) or jasmine (like Chinese green and white teas), then this variety has nothing to do with real matcha or it has lost its properties during processing or storage.

• Taste : The taste of a good matcha is sweet, light. It certainly shouldn't taste like fish or seaweed! The taste of matcha depends greatly on the variety and the season when it is harvested. The May harvest has a deeper, rich taste and sweet aroma, and respectively, contains the highest amount of antioxidants and chlorophyll. Harvested later than July, matcha may have bitterness and it contains fewer vitamins and minerals than in the early varieties.


Une fois moulus, tous les Matchas commencent un lent processus d'oxydation, qui dégrade leurs propriétés.

Notre Matcha est garanti toujours fraîchement moulu, et c'est extrêmement important!

Cela suppose une logistique plus complexe et des précautions nombreuses dans le seul but de vous apporter une qualité hors du commun: un spectre aromatique développé, une grande douceur, et la restitution de toutes les propriétés nutritives bénéfiques.

Notre Matcha est fourni dans des contenants hermétiques à l'air, aux rayons lumineux susceptibles de l'abimer, et réalisé dans un verre noir spécial, un matériau inerte qui ne réagit pas avec le Matcha.

Afin de consommer votre Matcha au meilleur niveau de qualité, nous vous recommandons de le consommer dans les 3 mois en le conservant au frais à +5C dans notre contenant d'origine.

Votre Matcha peut cependant rester hors du frais de façon permanente et être consommé de façon parfaitement sûre, cependant il perdra plus vite les qualités exceptionnelles que nous avons travaillé dur à lui conférer.


Nos contenants de qualité sont aussi beaux que pratiques, et entièrement recyclables.

Le verre est un des matériau les plus recyclables qui soit, et le verre noir spécial que nous utilisons pour nos contenants ne fait pas exception.

Ces contenants sont si bons cependant que nous vous recommanderions de les garder et les utiliser pour conserver vos épices de qualité, préparations de cuisine, poudres, chocolats et tout aliment susceptible de s'abimer.
