Purchase matcha tea in the aiya – THE TEA shop and enjoy exclusive matcha – discover the huge range of Japanese organic matcha teas and fine Japanese green teas.
For 800 years matcha has been part of Japanese tea culture. The exclusive green tea powder is finely ground in granite stone grinders and is among the world’s rarest varieties of tea. Beaten with water using a bamboo whisk (chasen), the green powder creates a creamy, intense tea. In the aiya – THE TEA online shop you can purchase organic matcha tea in various qualities. First-time matcha drinkers can start with a “Matcha for Beginners” known as Izumi. For everyday matcha pleasure, the Ceremonial Hikari is the perfect choice, whilst matcha connoisseurs order the particularly fine Premium Horai or Super Premium Ten. Combined with an attractive matcha bowl, all matchas make a delightful gift for tea-lovers.
Matcha is one of the tea world’s most exciting rediscoveries of our time and is now no longer known simply as a classic tea, but also as an unusual ingredient in gourmet cuisine, a pièce de résistance in the finest dishes. The Matcha for Cooking from aiya – THE TEA was developed specially for this purpose and is an extravagant and healthy ingredient for amateur chefs too. In our Matcha recipes section we offer plenty of inspiration and ideas for the preparation of sweet and savoury dishes, as well as drinks with matcha, for example the popular matcha latte. Anyone wishing to prepare a healthy, green alternative to a latte macchiato or similar or who wants to savour their matcha whilst on the go can purchase matcha tea already prepared as a premix as Matcha for Latte to Go.
