A note on the word culinary: most "culinary" matcha you might find on the American market, unfortunately, has been used to designate "low-quality," or even powdered tea that is not truly matcha! This is not the case with Mizuba! We take the utmost care to ensure the matcha you receive is the best of the best √
What is the difference between our culinary and ceremonials? Not much! Our culinary organic matcha is still from Uji, shade-grown, and traditionally stone ground just like our ceremonial matcha. However, the tencha used to make Mizuba's culinary is harvested from leaves a little down the stem. These leaves are stronger, and therefore produce a stronger, yet still smooth (!) flavor, for you to enjoy through whatever you add the matcha to. Ie- you can still taste the tea through milk for lattes, through flour for cookies, etc! The Culinary Organic Mizuba will always be the quality you expect. Cheers!

Our matcha is exceptionally fresh: sourced, shade-grown & stone-milled to order from our friend's organic farms in Uji, Japan. Our matcha is grown solely with natural, organic fertilizers and no agricultural chemicals or pesticides are used.
