Our Matcha Yame is a top quality ceremonial grade matcha, coming from an award-winning, historical tea garden in Yame, Fukuoka prefecture in Japan. 

As daily drinkers of Matcha ourselves, we're always looking for a real, good ceremonial matcha that presents a great value for money that that can be enjoyed on a daily basis without much burden on your wallet. When we tasted Matcha Yame, we thought this will be definitely a great welcome addition for our matcha loving customers. If you currently enjoy our best-selling matcha, Matcha Delight, we're confident you will fall in love with our new matcha, Matcha Yame. 

It is highly smooth, creamy and mellow with rich, nutty and buttery flavours evocative of walnuts and almonds. The buttery, umami sensation in the finish lasts pleasantly long. A hint of very mild bitterness and herbaceous notes in the finish leave a refreshing mouthfeel on the palate. 

Being highly versatile, our Matcha Yame can be consumed on its own in a traditional way or can be consumed as Matcha Latte with your preferred choice of milk. We personally love Matcha Yame with just hot water as "Usucha" (traditional thin matcha), as it's a real top quality ceremonial matcha, which tastes superb on its own. 

But it works perfectly well as a delicious matcha latte - try it with naturally sweet foamy oat milk or with coconut milk (if you're making an iced matcha latte) - the original, nutty sweetness of Matcha Yame beautifully interacts so well with coconut/oat milk and tastes super yummy and healthy. If you are aware of different grades of matcha and regularly try to make Matcha Latte with different matcha on the market (unfortunately there are many unscrupulous vendors in the market who sell low quality, very bitter and herbaceous matcha as ceremonial matcha), you will appreciate the quality of our matcha even more. You will notice that you won't have to add any sugar to make a delicious Matcha Latte with our Matcha Yame, as Matcha Yame is a real ceremonial grade matcha and is hardly bitter on its own.

Enhance your vitality with our Matcha Yame. Our Matcha Yame can be your perfect daily companion to boost the immune system and increase the sense of well-being. 

A smooth and mellow Matcha that will be much appreciated by daily Matcha drinkers.

Tips for Tea Connoisseurs 

Matcha is a finely grounded powdered green tea, made from tea leaves shade-grown for 3-6 weeks before the harvest. Due to its limited exposure to the sunshine, tea plants undergo a chain of physiological changes in order to survive, which, in turn, results in the changes of the chemical composition of the tea leaves. Produced this way, Matcha tea is extremely rich in antioxidants and L-theanine. 

Known as a superfood rich in antioxidants and amino acids, Matcha has become a popular cooking ingredient for creative chefs and pâtissiers. Be creative to add our Matcha to your food recipes and share with us on social media.
