Matcha Preparation

The difference in quality and price of Matcha is defined as its "grade". Matcha made from younger, less mature leaves is known as "culinary grade" and is best recommended for cooking or adding to shakes, smoothies, or juices. Premium grade, like that in our "Just Matcha", is the highest quality with a richer more full flavor best enjoyed by itself as a hot or chilled tea.

The nutritional benefits of Matcha are the same regardless of the grade. This means you pay for the flavor, not the nutrients. This means finding your favorite Matcha match really depends on your taste and on how you like to enjoy Matcha - whether it be in shakes, baked goods or as a hot tea.

Matcha Muscle Original

Our most popular blend of premium grade matcha and organic pea protein is as versatile as it is healthy. Unlike our "Matcha Culinary" and "Just Matcha" flavors one serving of our signature blend packs 10g of protein per serving. It makes a great addition to any fruit smoothie or shake and can be enjoyed on the go by mixing with water or almond milk. If drinking Matcha is solely for the nutritional benefits this is the blend for you! You can use pre or post workout with just one serving boasting hours of sustained energy. Each bag contains 16 servings

Matcha Culinary Grade

Lightly sweet, our Matcha Culinary has a vibrant vegetal flavor with mild bitter notes in the finish. Never gritty, it has an earthy smell and vibrant green color. While you can use it to make regular hot tea the flavor profile of our Matcha Culinary is best enjoyed as an ingredient mixed with shakes, smoothies, or Matcha based baked goods. You can add it to sugar for a savory sweet dessert topping or mix with lemonade for a refreshing summer drink. Each bag contains 36 servings.
