Keep going until Sept. 17th, 2019, when the famed word authority finally added the word "matcha" to its lauded dictionary pages! While matcha has been part of our everyday vocabulary for years and years, we do appreciate the cultural recognition English speakers are now giving one of tea's greatest treasures.
We're certainly celebrating M-W's new addition with a nice chawan of pure, Japanese matcha green tea!

I wanted to personally write and let you know that beginning Friday, April 22nd, the price of our Daily Matcha will increase by one dollar, from $20 to $21. This is the first time we have been required to raise the price of tea in our 8.5 year history, and as a thank you for your continued support I wanted to give you a heads up.
